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.

It's a lively and crowded traditional street. Full of tourists. Tried the cube peanut cookies, smell delicious and taste wonderful.

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

Hefang street is the famous street in Hangzhou.it is a long pedestrian street,where you can find many stores selling longjin tea,chrysantenum tea,mochi,and many traditional snacks.I love the situation here..,the one I feel not comfortable was when we were eating at the food stalls,there were many beggars there,looking for food..

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.

We were expecting something quite traditional with handmade arts and crafts. The Hefang market isn't that exactly, but there are interesting things to see and buy; mostly silks (beware of the polyester items mixed in with the rest!), teas, local snacks, and general knickknacks. Definitely entertaining!

From traditional Chinese medicine to hipster cafes, you will be able to experience an array of cultures blended into one, representative of modern day China. I particularly liked the ancient design of the street with the modern interiors.

This place has a certain charm about it, the ancient buildings and all. The setback is that it has become a tad too commercialised. I suppose life must move on even for the Chinese and there is no reason why they have to stand still in time just so that we foreigners may have a glimpse of how their great... More
