Its not far from Xi hu, by taxi it will cost you around 15 RMB. Hefang Street is a nice place to do shooping and to eat in Hangzhou.

A historical street that comes alive at night, Hefang Street, like many other attractions in Hangzhou, are filled with tourists. However, it's still worth a visit for its old buildings and some good snacks e.g. savoury beancurd near the start of the street. My friends and I were lured by the sweet snacks sold near the start of the street... More

A busy tourist trap. However a must. I opened my leather in a fine ceramics shop. We stayed a long time watching the Kite flying in the square, it was amazing. Mane hundreds of meters line out.

I got an awesome mug here that is half glaze and decorated with flowers for (35rmb) $6! As for the streetfood, beginning of hefang street there will be a building that has indoor streetfood. You will exchange money starts at 100rmb for a card charged with 100rmb. Makes transaction easier! I purchased a whole chicken wrapped in paper that looks... More

Its an old street but certainly so-so. Beware of the food at the food court,, full of MSG. the savoury beancurd at the begining of the street was worth a try though. do note the snacks being sold all over the streets gets progressively cheaper as you walk down.. from 2 for $15 to 2 for $10 to $5 each!

This was the must-visit place recommended by the hotel and taxi drivers for authentic Hangzhou cuisine. Unfortunately, authenticity was the missing element in this street filled with souvenirs, snacks, restaurants and genuine Chinese touts. Nothing close to the many "living and breathing" street markets you can find elsewhere in Asia. Give it a 20-minute quick look-see, at best.

Another refurbished 'old street' housing the usual souvenir shops and tea houses. If you look beyond what's being sold and walk off the main street you will find some interesting architecture and a little bit of history but it's usually crowded and unless you're new to China and this type of place there's little to offer and other cities have...

in this street you can learn about teas, spices, how to make candies, what the Chinese eat, and it is fun to go around here. However it might be a bit too touristy...
