Visited on a Friday late morning, interesting old street architecture, but nothing much to buy or eat, shops mainly for tourists and many were closed.

Stroll along the old buildings that had been properly maintained and restored to preserve tails of history. There's a 'pedestrian only' section where you can walk slowly without the worry of passing traffic. Go take a look!

Qilou old street at Zhongshan road has some some cafes/coffee boutique shops/dessert shops/shops selling selling souvenirs etc.. There's also an entrance to a wholesale clothes centre (福昌城) within this area. Kinda similar to the tanjong pagar area or Chinatown in Singapore. Nearby there's the haikou clock tower. Qilou food street is a distance away from qilou old street, and it's... More

Shop houses that have been conserved to showcase the early generation of history. Pass by on the way to the local dried goods mkt. Prices are much lower compared to sanya for food and dried goods eg sea cucumber, scallops.

Troublesome to get foodcard to buy the food. Otherwise is a good eat. The snack street beside is more convenient. Cash is fine. The jiajiang noodle is highly recommended.

This building is known as Qilou Snack Street. I heard that this building is a "newly" built building just to cater food. Inside here, there are many food stalls. When I was there, there were hardly anyone there, so I guess the food is not good?! The actual Qilou Old Street is close by and the buildings there are really... More

Food street offering in foodcourt style in more like a restored building. Many of the dishes are re-heated for your order so don't expect great tasting flavors. You need to get a prepaid card on the grounds; be sure to get your refunds if there is any leftover credits. A shopping center called Friendship Commercial Plaza is next to QiLou... More

As the other reviews say, this is a nice food court with a wide range of food stalls. Almost connected to it (50m) on the left when looking at the building is another, more lively street, which for us was better. The area in general is worth a visit.

This is an area in downtown Haikou with several streets with buildings bulit in Qilou style. So me streets are restored and some are not. It is a nice place to walk and enjoy some drink in one of the new cafés and restaurants
