Great atmosphere.

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... read 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...

Very nice place. Beautiful wooden shops all over, gives this place a great ambience. Lots of traditional food around. Near the entrance, there's a lady selling steamed white rice cakes called Migao. Very expensive as it sells by weight. But it's great. Very fragrant and chewy. Best eaten hot. Slightly sweet. Very enjoyable, and romantic. Too short as a pedestrian... More

Its a quite long street which is a must been if you like the older tradional style. The insides of the buildings are very commercial with a price typical for tourists. Most stuff they sell is from plain to very extensive handcraftmanship. Wood / stone / ivory you name it. If you want some typical chinese stuff go show at... More

This is a must when visiting Fuzhou. Beautiful pedestrian street with great shops and food. Found some great souvenirs here, not cheap crap, but nice things to bring back to the US. Pretty frustrated that I had found a couple of things I really liked but didn't get, most shops will give you a discount price but don't really negotiate... More
