Very nice place. So authentic. Not to be missed. Lots of shopping. There is also a Mc Donald on one end. Night life is also awesome. Lots of food and street food also.

China as it used to be. A meandering street (with a few offshoots) where many hours can be spent looking in the stores, having a coffee or something stronger and taking hundreds of pictures. We loved it and go back again if we get the chance.

Spent a night in Tunxi before heading to Xidi, and really loved 'laojie', the Ancient Street. It was a bit touristy at times, but nice to walk around and have a look at the very old building. In one of the side lanes, one can find nice bars to sit outdoors, and they offer some simple dishes as well.

Much like any kind of street in China. Unimpressed. An ok distraction while waiting to go up Huangshan I guess.

As previously reviewed, if you have time to kill it's a good choice. Touristy, yes but not without merit. The food choices are many and reasonable priced. The best thing about being on the street is the architecture - don't forget to look up.

I had some time to kill after I returned from Hongcun and before my train departed for Suzhou, so I took the bus to this street and walked around. It was a nice shopping street. According to my online information, it said the buildings were 900 years old. Although they were the very tradition Huizhou style architecture, I couldn't believe... More

This was the most fun my wife and I had shopping during our entire China trip. The streets were not that packed and there were lots of shops with little trinkets. What's better is that there are not a lot of Americans, most of the shoppers are Chinese tourists. It's way easier to get a good deal on some nice... More

I have toured many old towns of China (almost each county will surely have at least, one). I feel Tunxi Old Town not as populated with tourists and the people are very laid-back. It is serene, down-to-earth and liveable. Love this old town! Remember to buy the small little yellow chrysanthemum flowers back to brew tea. They are very tasty.... More

On our way back from Huangshan Mountain we had a lot of time to kill before the night train to Nanjing and that is why we went to see this famous street. Somewhere on our way from the station, we entered a tea shop and tasted some tea. When we got to the Tunxi Ancient Street (by bus nr 12,... More
