The streets do not offer exciting things to see. Many chain store and they show on your eyeballs repeatedly. However, I still think this is a must to see area to feel the old times.

Took a cab to this street. Good place to pick up gifts for friends. This is a pedestrian street so there is no vehicular traffic. 2 western fast food eateries here MacDonald & KFC. Many shops were selling dried seafood products like dried cuttlefish. Prices are fairly reasonable.

Very surprised to see something like this in China - particularly due to the fact that I expected to be mauled by motorbikes and cyclists! This is a great shopping strip with just about anything and everything that one can buy. It's a great place for food and general shopping. It really comes to life at night too.

You will notice that every major city in China will have such walking street. They host many shops selling local products and delicacies. Zhongshan Road walking street is a popular outing place and crowded on weekends and public holidays. If you plan to bargain-hunt for local products here, it is advisable to market prices in mind.

These usually consist of biscuits, pastries, dried fruits, jerkies, egg rolls, dry goods etc There is a LOT of it on sale in Zhongshan Rd. Price is slightly cheaper than purchasing on Gulangyu Island (though there are some cheap dealer... More

You are able to buy anything in and around this lovely walking street/mall. Little side streets have wonderful crafts, Xiamen is known for lovely clothing, in fact it is one of the very famous Craft cities in China

On this street you can find anything you want, and if your only going to be spending one night in Xiamen this is the place to do it. Here you will get all the street food you want and plenty of the shopping, make sure not to stay on the main road the whole time and instead wonder off because... More
