The street has been restored to its 600-year old architecture for the pleasure of the tourists. Most of the establishments are new, but some have been operating in that street through generations! We were lucky enough to have a local guiding us as to which were the old-timers, otherwise the street would be just another touristy stretch. Given the clientele,... More

We had a nice stroll trough this 800m long street which is 500 years old. The area used to be the center of the town. Nowadays there is one shop next to the other and you will find the same items displayed many times at various shops. The good thing was, shop owners are quite relaxed and do not talk... More

This street is worth a one-time visit if you're staying in Tunxi, pre or post your Huangshan expedition. Tunxi is pretty much a small town with good connectivity by train and bus. The stretch is decked with souvenir shops and touristy snacks. It's mostly where the tourists will hang out if they're staying in Tunxi. Small tip- there's a tasty... More

This is the street tourists will visit before or after Huangshan. This is part of old China with centuries-old history. The city did a good job to preserve the street and the buildings, so the tourists can enjoy while they are there. We spent an hour there in the evening; the street all lit up, it was so beautiful.

We stay at one of the hostels at this ancient street. The old building was quite conserved. There was a good restaurant just in front of our hotel. It was a good resting area after hike Mt. Huangshan.

The one-mile long paved street has been a trading street since the Song Dynasty. It still is. There are traditional and also new shops. The inkstone business, once flourishing, has experienced an obvious decline, though the material on offer is most artistic. There are some good restaurants, all in the still prevalent architectural style. We ate twice at the one... More

I was here in November 2012 on the way to the mountain. Had lunch and dinner in the same restaurant. This is part of old China and it is a pleasure to visit the shops, both old and new.

We traveled to Tunxi to go to the mountain, but were surprised by this little street! Unlike Shanghai, the shops were large and clean, and had the old China feel to them! This is a tourist area, but the shop owners didn't pressure you to buy! Take time to visit!

TunXi Ancient Street not so ancient anymore. All dressed up and commercialised tourist place. Our tourist guide was from this town. Probably this was the reason we visited twice. Once on the way to Mt Huangshan and then again on the return trip to drop off the tour guide. Maybe good to stretch your legs after a long ride in... More
