Travel Recommendation: Beautiful Tianzifang Neighborhood in Shanghai

The next time you visit Shanghai, go see the lovely neighborhood of Tianzifang 田子坊 in Pudong.  Located at 210 Taikang Road (泰康路210弄) and Dapuqiao Metro Stop.  There are many cute shops and cafes where you can spend the morning or afternoon.  See local artists, meet people, enjoy a drink and a snack.  Here is one special shop - Deng's Paper Cutting.  Maybe a little expensive, but you can look at the beautiful examples and choose something in a peaceful environment.

Travel Recommendation: Shopping at Spin Ceramics in various cities

For those who enjoy beautiful porcelain and pottery for the table and home, visit Spin Ceramics in Beijing, Shanghai and Changsha.  They have many beautiful pieces for souvenirs and for yourself.   The Beijing shop is close to the 798 Art District.  The Shanghai shop has moved recently and now occupies two floors - there are so many choices!  I haven't visited the new location in Changsha, but maybe one day. Enjoy!
