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

We spent hours wandering Tunxi Ancient street. During the day it is barren and quiet, mostly locals setting up shop, so a good time to appreciate the old architecture, but at night it comes alive with people. The old buildings are beautiful, and have been converted into interesting shops that sell all manner of things, great to poke around in.... More

We stayed in Tunxi for one night and spent a few hours wandering around Tunxi Ancient Street. It's really touristy but it's still really, really cool! I couldn't stop taking photographs every few steps. The locals are really friendly and cool, there are quite a few places to grab food and sit for a while and soak it in. We... More

A lot of small antiquity and carvings shops and a lot of nice restaurants. Nice especially in the evening when it gets alive.
