Great place with lots of vendors and lots of food. The thing about street markets in China though is that a lot of the time if you have been to one, you have been to them all. There are a few things here that I have yet to see in other places in China but generally it's the same. That... More

Great place for experiencing a Chinese market street! We went at night and I suspect that it is livelier after the sun goes down, because that's when many Chinese people come out to walk around. The Chinese refer fondly to "hot, loud and crowded" atmospheres as "renao", which is what this place is. Expect lots of people, smells, and sounds... More

If you're wanting to take a walk, weather permitting, and visit some nice shops for silk to cheap souvenirs, this is the place. Very well laid out, clean and safe. Plenty of places to eat. This was my favorite place in Hangzhou.

Hefting Street is truly worth wandering for a couple of hours. Not just for shopping but also for experiencing the atmosphere of a business district which dated back to the thirteenth century, in the South Song Dynasty. Shops lined up on two sides of the street and the neighboring streets, as this is a shopping area for pedestrians only. By... More

Clean street with a lovely stream running through. Main Street where the old shops used to be, you will still find shops selling silk, painting and various café and restaurants. A halal restaurant is on one end of the street. Across a very busy highway via an overhead bridge you will find a section of the city which is closer... More

Enjoy walking along the street and watch the shops and people. I recommend to visit a free art gallery on the right side when comming from the parking place. This place is quited inside the entrance of the building and it is spread along two floors. The exhibition I visited there presented interesting golden sculptures, mainly modern art.

This street is made to look old and has plenty of shops selling all the touristy souvenirs...all very cheap looking and priced very highly. My local guide advised me not to purchase anything here because the quality is poor and prices are often higher than other places....the many restaurants look nice, but I was told they charge exorbitant prices as...

This place is a must visit of tourists. Lots of local food and snack. Also you can find a local tea in Hangzhou ''Long jin cha''. Along the street is decorated in a local Chinese style, unmissable at the evening atmosphere.

Very touristic, shops selling tourist junk and other same stuff. Buildings are interesting and it's in the center so drop by and walk through, 30 mins is enough.

There are some attraction that you can't find in other cultural street, like frying green tea, creating crystal object, making snack. There also an interesting old china herbal shop. Some shop will give you tea example to taste, and you can bargain the tea if you want to buy some.
