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.

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.

This is a street which has a long history and profound culture. It is the cultural and economic center of South Song dynasty.

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.
