Located at Tianfu Square, the center of the city, Chengdu Tianfuhong is not a regular shopping center with high-end fashion brands. Rather, it is a ‘young shopping center’, catering to generation Z and young people who love ACGN culture (for those who don’t know, that’s an acronym for animation, comics, games, and novels).
With a creative interior design – each floor has a different theme and features boutiques, stores made famous by the internet, cafes, and restaurants. Lolita JK Cosplay costume and Han-style clothing stores are discoverable here, along with seemingly countless other small retailers.
For those looking for something a little unusual and quirky, head to level seven. It’s here you’ll step back in time to local Chengdu life in the seventies and eighties with restored items and replicas. Since its opening in late 2021, Chengdu Tianfuhong has quickly become a popular spot for locals wanting to profile themselves on social media. For an insight into the culture of young Chinese today, make your way here. A local tip? Sit back and watch life go by.
