Touristy shopping area with walking only road in the daytime. Be aware of prices as they are higher than other parts of Xiamen.

It's very nice at night, if you like shopping this is just the place. A little expensive, but you can bargain, especially if you speak a little Chinese. There are also many good restaurants.

Zhongshan Lu is a wide street that has been "pedestrianized" by closing off both ends to motor traffic. Other than that it is a shopping street with few concessions to pedestrians especially in the summer when the shady colonnades along the road are packed. Some old colonial buildings are evident above the retail at ground level. It is worth a... More

Lots of different types of shops with many offering local food.We were able to find a Starbucks in... More

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.
