Lots of different shops to see and not usualy tourist rip off stuff with high prices and shonky quality. We had dinner at an upstairs restaurant that served tradtional Fuzhou dishes and was good and tasty and cheap. The local beer was a bit watery. Well worth a visit.

Direct translated will be “3 Square & 7 Alleys". The word "Square" refer as Community or Families that were large and wealthy in ancient China. There are buses that stop just at the entrance of the Sounthern Back Street (Nan Hou Jie). THe whole place was restored accordingly to the old pattern life style of Fuzhou. There are few musuem...

The streets are all preserved really well and it is very pretty. However, the shops are pretty much commercialised and make sure you bargain if you intend to buy anything from the shops. Also, must try the local street food...especially the fish balls!

Although an enormously touristy attraction ( there were dozens of coaches when I went on a Saturday morning) this place is a showcase for what can be done in restoration & reconstruction of old buildings. You would need several hours to explore the alleyways & shops. I particularly enjoyed some modern private art galleries. It would have been nice to... More

The area is a great place to walk about and enjoy the architecture. There are signs which give the history of the various alleys. Also, there are some bronzes in the area depicting daily life scenes. We found an excellent tea shop for purchasing Jasmine teas.

This is another ancient streets preserved and turn into souvenir shops, local hawker food, museums, gallery. For those who travel to china frequently, there is nothing to shout about as similar ancient streets can be found in almost major cities in china. Despite that, I find the local food very tasty. Especially the fish ball with meat and also the... More

it's Three 'Lanes' seven 'alleys' actually. It's a bit like an old Chinese 'Carnaby street' now - too touristy but still quaint
