The Ci Qi Kou market and street leading up to it are full of food stalls and arts and crafts shops. It gets very crowded on weekends (we were there on a Sunday) so that you have to look where you're walking (cobblestones) instead of looking at the shops. You will find some of the same items here as in... More

Ciqikou is very easy to get to by metro. It is highly touristy - remember that all these tourists are Chinese, you might see one European - but still interesting. The temple is worth a visit. If you continue along the lane that the temple is in, it will eventually bring you, by way of the non-touristy part of the... More

It is a typical old village in China but selling the same thing everywhere. One cannot really see the uniqueness of the old village. Sometimes, I wish Chinese government realise that they are ruining all these sites.

Although it's an old area of the town, most street and restaurants seem like they've been recreated recently. Doesn't remove the charm. Very crowdy but you get some nice local food.

Found this great shopping area for buying paintings and clothes. Lots of nice street food if you are into the authentic Chinese food. It is crowded, so beware. Overall I would definitely recommend it.

It is radically a touristic place ! Crowded, touristic shops etc... However, if you start walking into small streets and getting yourself deeper into this "fake" village, you actually can find some indie streets with interesting shops that are nothing to do with normal touristic shops. I was able to find really good jewellery for a fairly good price !... More

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,...
