It's the basically the walking street of Xiamen. It's touristy though so I wouldn't call it a "real" walking street (as there is pretty much a walking street for every Chinese city). Regardless, still fun to walk down and people-watch all the Chinese tourists. Just be careful of a few scams here and there.

The pearl shops have their oysters and polishing drums right on the sidewalk, very interesting to see. The prices are very very competitive. Their is not much english understood but with a bit of pointing and a... More

Apparently this is not only a foreign tourist attraction but s local gathering place, a tourist attraction to other Chinese people, is a very very long street with a lot of stores mainly dedicated to Chinese market How ever is fun to watch and been watched here

A very busy pedestrian street with shops of al sorts, traders are in the alleys at the sides of the main shops. Agree a price before you buy and watch your change. One tried to charge me £5 for a small bottle of water. Little english is spoken anywhere.

I love walking this street. There are so many amazing buildings to look at. Don't miss the tea street where you can watch the ladies sorting the tea buds. Wonder off this road and get a good look at another world.

After six nights in Hong Kong with countless A-List fashion stores - how many Gucci stores can one city have??? - enjoying the walk down Zhongshan Road was really enjoyable. Sure, there was a mall along the route with the usual suspects - Armani, etc. But most of the street featured good quality Chinese merchants. We enjoyed the variety and... More

It is a decent place where you get all the things you want, i.e. popular road side foods, restaurants, souvenirs, department store and even supermarket. Be sure you explore the lanes that expand from this street and you'll find all things that you are looking for. The only down part of it is that the various lanes are quite confusing... More

If you like shopping and strolling, then you will enjoy this walking street. It's average stuff, though - nothing too special.

On most days, Zhongshan Road is quite crowded and noisy. Most of the shops sell overpriced clothes and local specialties, but the latter can make good gifts for friends and family. Xiamen style cakes (a bit like Chinese moon cakes) and dried meat/fish are some of the edible souvenirs. The street food, although kind of expensive, is actually pretty good.... More

When you really look around you will find. Food stalls of really strange cooking foods but line ups at everyone. Less expensive souvenir goods from bracelets, note books/book marks/good luck and long life charms to pearls to everyday clothes to designer clothes. If you know where, great copy of the latest Blu-ray movies. And then at the bottom end, you... More
