we were here on West St as a result of our Li River cruise ending in Yangshuo. our guide gave us something like 45 minutes here and told us where the clean restroom was and where the knock-off handbags were. She even took a number of us there where there is a "back room" filled with the high-end knock-offs. there... More

The street is probably one of the most important streets in yangshuo. Rows of restaurants, cafes fruit vendors and street hawkers. The streets when lit in the night looks very beautiful as well

Good market and on the surface doesn't look like much but you have to look for the hidden treasures and remember to barter.

After our disappointing visits to the scenic spots, my family and I went here for dinner and shopping and were pleasantly surprised. It was very busy and had a nice selection of restaurants to choose from as well as hundreds of shops where you can bargain for a better price. I got a painting of Guan Yu for 88rmb, bargained...

This is a street selling the usual tourist gifts from bags to paintings etc. You have to bargain hard as is usual, there are also quite a few places to eat. Try to wonder some of the back streets and see how the locals live.

Nothing you really need in this street but it's fun to buy souvenirs here, and lots of neat things to eat if you aren't wary of street food. If you like to haggle, anywhere in China is good but the shops here were a bit nicer than most.

I passed by West Street in the morning and saw that the entire street was packed with people milling around. I didn't go in at the time, but returned at night. Similar to the morning, the street was packed, full of vendors and little shops. I thought I was just going to do a quick walk through the street and... More

We walked up this street after disembarking from our river cruise boat. The street is bustling and exciting with restaurants and souvenir shops abounding. Some of the establishments are quite quirky and we enjoyed seeing everything.

West Street is there to go if you are looking for a place to dine as locals, but it’s not great as a tourist attraction. Full of cheap touristy things you can find at anywhere around China. So sad to see a street claim with over a thousand years history turning into such a commerical place.

Busy and touristy but you have to see it while you are around Yangshuo. If you want to shop the markets morning is probably best, prices are good and remember to bargain and walk away if need to. At night it is packed. Get pushed along by the crowd and the noise. There is a lot happening. Our group enjoyed... More
