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

Long shopping street full of locals and tourist alike. This place has lots of little side nooks that can be explored. There's also a good place near the beginning to get some peanut soup and oyster omelettes.

The street itself it's nothing special! Just a lot of different shops and a couple of sopping malls! The only thing that makes it nice are the old colonial buildings.

The street is a nice place to stroll in the evening if you have spare time or if your hotel is nearby. It's lined up with shops with most shops selling snacks from Taiwan. There isn't really much to see. However, if you wish to buy local products and try local delicacies, then this may be the right place.

This street is claimed to be a must-go attraction for visitors to Xiamen. Perhaps like all such "walking street" in China, it has loss its local tradition charm. Though you still can find many shops there selling local goods, but many of them are selling "Taiwan local produce". Local visitors could find these interesting, but not for foreigners who have...

I am not sure, why everybody makes a big thing out of this street. buildings are nice old style, the others are normal shops everywhere with many people. left and right of the road might be more interestesting. Nothing really special. A shopping street.

It is a pedestrian zone with lots of shops, places to eat. It tends to get a bit noisy as many shops tried to get attention by playing loud music or commercial. The lightings on the shops and streets were great.
