This area has many stalls that offer many different snacks to sample. There are also various shops if you're looking for souvenirs to take home to the family. As elsewhere in China, remember to bargain.

Like any other walking street in other part of China. There are many souvenires and street foods and snacks to enjoy. We went there around 8.30 PM, most of the shops were close. I would recommend to visit the Ms Dong teashop--lovely packaging and nice smell of tea leaves. Tip of budget travel: Take metro Line 1 and took a... More

Great little shopping bazaar, with narrow streets and lots of traditional crafts and food available. Quite close to a subway stop so quite convenient access. I highly recommend the temple in the centre of the area, as a place of tranquility and peace. Really beautiful and calm compared to the madness outside. If you really want a big more adventure,...

So, until I saw this listing in TripAdvisor I didn't even realize this was supposed to be a porcelain village. We went there because it was the old town. It's winding streets and shop houses are still the old style of architecture. It's a really fun place to walk around, shop, and then people watch while having a cup of... More

Veer off the main tourist lanes and you will see local dwellings, worth the walk. Easy to reach by subway.

Try to get on to some of the side streets where you can find some really nice, well-kept traditional houses and architecture. Worth an hour or two's stroll. Some of the coffee shops are very nice but the street food is decidedly so-so. Would recommend visiting temple at the top where it is very peaceful and you get some nice... More

Ciqikou is great for those who are looking to do a bit of shopping for cheap souvenirs to take home to friends and family. There is also some nice street food. It should only take one about 2 hours to fully explore.

This place looks like the old Chinese style village. Most of them are the shop for food, souvenirs, etc. This place you can try the local food such as "Ma-La-Gua" (fried ply flour). But the food that I suggest is fried goat meat and topping with the Sechuan Chilli (if you can eat the spicy food). You can buy some... More
