This is a street which has a long history and profound culture. It is the cultural and economic center of South Song dynasty. There are many time-honored shops on the street, the buildings are ancient styles, the moment when I strolled on the street, I had a feeling that I was back to South Song dynasty. I am a food...

A colourful, old street full of character. slightly commercialised though. But it's a good place to explore the interesting stores and buy some souvenirs.

This old area of town, now a shopping area, was very interesting with lots of unique shops and souvenir shops along with some very strange smells!! A nice area to visit if you have time but not a place I'd say you'll miss alot by going somewhere else.

Hefang street was one of my favourite places in Hangzhou, really great place to shop! So many different shops with unique items and easy to haggle with the shop owners! I spent 2 days in Hefang street as I loved it so much, it felt so traditional with all the lovely buildings and there was a great atmosphere around it... More

The Street retains many of the older building renovated to hold modern shops. Retains the feel of an older market area. This was a bustling environment with lots of interest around it.

Well worth a visit if you want to buy reasonably priced local goods , your tour guide will help you to bargain .Ny local products produced in Hangzhou are available here such as very high quality scissors.
