I stumbled onto this street in the early evening while taking a stroll northward from Intercontinental Hotel after check-in. I was attracted by the lit up silhouettes of the old shop houses lining Nanhou Street, which is the spine of the area known as Sanfangqixiang (meaning Three Streets and Seven Lanes). The more famous lanes extending from Nanhou Street include... More

Mixed reactions from tourists and travelers about this place but for me, I especially like it! Seeing the shops housed on these traditional stone buildings from Old China just makes shopping and sightseeing a lot more historical. Sculptures of different Chinese famous people can also be found at the sides of the alleys with English inscriptions and a short history.... More

While I appreciate the historical relevance and museums of how people once lived in old Fuzhou. This has unfortunately like any other quaint historical quarter found all over America and Europe where tourist stands and Starbucks now dominate the streets. Really ruins the charm. Power of Disneyland Main Street in a Chinese setting now is the main theme park. Last... More

It is historical, part of the 3 lanes and 7 alleys, but too many shops and people for my taste. It is a mecca for domestic tourists - I was the only non-Chinese when I visited, though that can be an advantage.

Nanhou Street in Fuzhou is beautiful. It is a treat for the adventure traveler and shopabout alike, with many historic sites like the old home of Lin Zexu, great eateries, and mystical shops. I love it!

This could be anywhere in China. Seems every town of a certain size has it walking street with (fake) old buildings selling the same souvenirs. On the side street are the former residences of famous local people but you cannot visit. Ok to walk around there to kill time, have some local snack food and chill at Starbucks. Certainly not...

Great ambient atmosphere on this luttle pedestrian-only area in fujian. The street food is yummy, and some little traditional handicrafts sold here will make good little gifts for friends back home. Worth a visit.
