You can reach this street from the airport easily, either by cab (rmb30) or airport express (rmb6). By foot you can covered the street in 20 mins. I would say the things there are "can buy" rather than "must buy". You can get: Four Treasures of the Study (文房四宝, wen fang si bao), Famous Chinese Tea - Huang Shan Mao... More

Entire street is covered with beautiful designed shop and houses. Beautiful architectural design. Series of shops in a line with small roads. Great place to find variety of food all together. And yeah got a chance to taste the varieties of chinese pickle. We also found some old chinese stuff. It was wonderful.

It's a tourist oriented street in the middle of town. Lots of old buildings. Some may be genuinely old buildings but many look like new buildings modelled after ancient designs. Can cover the entire street in 20 minutes. It's a great place to buy traditional food and souvenirs.

We went to Tunxi Ancient Street on 6 December 2014. Some shops were built in ancient architecture style. There were many restaurants and shops selling food and souvenirs. It was a place for shopping. There was a river, " Xin An Jiang" nearby. We went there to watch the sunset. We had our dinner in one of the restaurants, "Lao... More

A fun place to spend a couple of hours. Shops offer local teas and souvenirs. If you enter from the direction of the "Old Stree Hotel," you need to cross two intersections before you'll find the restaurant area (distance, say 1.5 km).

The street indeed looks like a classical ancient Chinese street, mostly at the second floors and the rooftops. Worth a night visit too. The ground floors are full with stores (which have many Chinese souvenirs but usually overpriced and of poor quality) and restaurants (which can be quite pricey relative to china).

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.
