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.

Everything from Pin to a Plane :) available on this shopping street but be prepared for the crowd. Traditional Styled shops offering variety of Chinese manufactured products (ranging from 10 RMB to 10000 RMB) open to bargain. There's an open space at the end of the street (or the beginning- depends on which side you get in) where you can... More

I have visited Hefang Street several times and always enjoy my time there. Shops are in traditional style and there are plenty of souvenirs and snack foods - be prepared to bargain and you can have lots of fun here. Metro stop Ding'an Road, then just a short walk. Hefang Street is within easy walking distance to Xihu (West Lake)... More

Nice old street, easy to find. I arrived in Hangzhou in the beginning of April, the weather was really nice for a city walking around tour. After visiting around West Lake, we took metro and went to Hefang street. This is an old street with lots of old buildings, nice organization, many good things too buy and good food to... More
