The shops dominate the old town, but forget all the stone carvings and other touristy stuff and check out the architecture. It is beautiful old city with lots of alleys, where the original families still live.

By Chinese standards Tunxi is just a small town of little relevance, but it is has a truly beautiful old town with a long main street (Lao Jie) lined with beautiful merchant houses converted into an infinite series of tourist shops (the big Chinese pharmacy is worth a visit), a few good restaurants, a maze of little old alleys and...

The old area of tunxi is quite interesting but rather geared to tourists. Souvenirs are in abundance in the little shops making it feel like a tourist trap.It is pleasant to stroll around the town in the evening.

A village in Chinese terms, only 110,000 citizens. Hosts a beautiful ancient street loaded with nice stores.

The city is well preserved, it's quite and there are some very good restaurants there. It's nice to walk during the sunset. People are nice and it's not too cloudy.

Only one street remains from the 1,000 year old village of Tunxi, and it has been incorporated into the modern, busy Huangshan City and loaded down with expensive tourist shops and restaurants. Yes, you can glimpse the occasional old building ornament behind the neon lights -- but for a much more authentic Old China experience drive or bus an hour... More

Get a feel for ancient Anhui culture. I especially liked the calligraphy products such as brushes and ink stones. You could see them butchering hogs to make Anhui huotui 火腿。 It's a type of sun cured ham. Buy some tea. The famous green tea Huangshan Maofeng 黄山毛峰茶 as well as excellent examples of Keemun 祁门 are available here at reasonable... More
