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...

Yes a little touristy and a little commercialized, this old town still offers interesting architecture and plenty of old town features. went to a museum of chinese herbal medicine, and another showcasing bronze works. the interiors of these old houses were worth preserving. i enjoyed the shops too.

However, grown up chinese culture (in Indonesia), i found they have small snack that i haven't taste for ages, so a bit nostalgia time for... More

This is a restored pedestrian street with vendors, restaurants, statues and shops. While I thought it had potential, most of the stuff for sale was nothing special and of low quality. This made it harder to discern what might be really worth the tourist prices being offered. Is it worth a visit? Yes. However, I wouldn't plan on making it... More

A very huge place which seems never ending. Lots of restaurants and food stalls and equally as many local tourist. Am here on a Saturday and is extremely crowded. Would be a little more pleasant if they disallow any form of vehicles in that area. We didn't try the food along that street but we had dinner in a restaurant... More
