A very nice pedestrian street, full of shops and street food booths. Good place for a pleasant walk. Together with the promenade on the bank of Shiqi river is worth to see. I liked to sit down on a bench and look at the colorful crowd of people passing Sunwen Str. Only music in shops was too loud!

Pedestrian Street isn't that special. It's a pedestrian only street with shops which shouldn't be much of a novelty for travelers from the west. However, when you visit at night there's a lot of great things to see and do in the immediate surroundings. The lights are beautiful, there's a light pagoda nearby and just a short walk away there's... More

Zhongshan City or Shekki as locals still call it was a thriving commercial hub long before the economic reforms in China in the 1980s and the rise of the special economic zones. This was because by the 1920s and 1930s Shekki was the heart of an overseas Chinese network that linked this city through HK with ports and economies around... More

I walked from the hotel I stayed (Sheraton) to the Pedestrian Street, it is enjoyable to cross the bridge over the river in a sunny day. More interesting shops at the end of the pedestrian street, please don't forget to take a look on some stalls along the pedestrian street which may be quite interesting.

I'm not sure why this is ranked so high. It is just a street full of the same type of shops. Good for buying clothes or bags I guess, no where near as good as the pedestrian streets in Chengdu or Chongqing. Waste of time really

Great place to shop and look around at the old buildings. It is a lot nicer compared to the one in Zhenshen (East Gate). It is clean and safe. I wish there are more places to eat over there. I was there during weekday, so it wasn't too crowded.

If you want to feel how it was like in the olden days of Zhongshan, this is the place. This is a pedestrian lane where on can walk and experience. There are old buildings that are maintained. Most of them are now various sorts of retail shops selling fashion items, shoes, food, and fake jewelry. If you are nearby, do... More

This is our favorable shopping area for the past ten years. It is very nice with stores on both sides with people walking in the middle of this street without worrying about cars. There benches along side, so you can take a break and sit down and have a sugar cane juice from one of the sidewalk snack bars. Most... More

The walk is interesting as you can see local way of life But really nothing much to shop. All shops sell almost the same thing...

Found knives, socks, ninja stars, panties, baozi, sandals, dried stinky fish, jade, perfume, friendly chinese people and youth all over. If there is 20 stores, at least 12 are copies of one another. If you go there, go at night. The lights are awesome. I saw this on my 2nd day in that town so i was amazed (i come... More
