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

this is a typical chinese attempt to make an old street for commerce. You'll find one in every city in China. Not worth the time if you had already seen other "old street"

The area is nice for having dinner and strolling around in the evening as the streets light up and it becomes very picturesque. At first it seemed to scream "tourist", but it is an ACTUAL ancient street and market area, now updated and modernised with a very commercial feel while still preserving much of the ancient architecture. There were food... More

When I went to Tunxi, it's packed with tourists, maybe because it's weekend. The street were beautiful in the evening, where lampions and lamps iluminate the old buildings, the vendors on the right and left side of the small road, tried to attract buyers. Most of the stores sells similar things: Tea, Cookies, handycrafts, scarfs and snacks. Some vendors are... More
