Xintiandi, a modern leisure and entertainment neighborhood in downtown Shanghai, provides an interesting window on the city and the rest of the world, on city’s yesteryears, today and tomorrow. Culturally and historically imbued old homes which are known as Shikunmen and cover an area of nearly 30,000 square meters, have been turned into a hive of activity for diners, shoppers and entertainment and leisure seekers. Beneath the veneer of old bricks and roofs that have been preserved to this day and age are modern amenities. An easy stroll makes you feel you are transported back in time to a Shanghai of the 20’s and 30’s of the last century, but once you step into a door, the ambience of modernity is just overwhelming. Galleries, designer clothing shops, theme eateries, cafés and bars are everywhere. Street shows and trendy activities abound.
Xintiandi is Shanghai’s new landmark. It is where tradition and modernity meet, a classy venue for urban slickers.
