So this is tour typical tourist trap, replete with merchants telling you that prices are "very, very cheap". The only english I heard in Yangshou. There are you foreign themed bars, a KFC, some Indian statues, etc. Still if you like this kind of thing, it's fun enough.

Was such fun. Lots of restaurants, shopping, tea houses, markets,clubs. Be sure to eat the walnut shaped cakes at the stall in the centre of west street. Not to be missed!

This place kinda reminds me of Taipei's Raohe Night Market area where there are lots of people, eateries and shops in the neighbourhood and it gets really busy at night. Frequented by the locals and tourist, this is a good place as any to try the local snacks and delicacies. Do take care of your wallet as I have observed... More

I feel like a curmudgeon here, but what a horrible strip. Every little store on this street has an amplified hawker trying to pull you in for the same old stuff. The throngs from the Li river cruises are elbow to elbow. It's worth a walk through just to absorb the vibe, but not much more. Lonely Planet says travelers... More

We spent 2 nights there early June. The location is very good, very close to the bustling West street and at the same time a little bit tucked away, so that we were not bothered by the noise. We were on a ground floor room, facing the yard. The room was spacious and clean, but dark, It was raining a... More

I really cannot see what the fuss was about! It is so over-run with tour groups any charm that this street may have had a few years ago is long gone. The shops just sell the same tourist tat that is available all across China. There is nothing wrong with West Street just not sure why quite so many people... More

West Street has masses of shops, bars & restaurants. You can buy all manner of tourist tat - some of it tasteful, some of it not. Prices vary - be sure to haggle. We went in March so all the tourists (apart from us!) were Chinese, which I liked & I enjoyed people watching. Lots of people trying to sell... More

This is where all the bars and more expensive restaurants are. Lots of shopping too. Things on this street are generally dearer than any where else in town. Great atmosphere at night.

We walked along this street but did not eat here. It's better to find less touristy places to go. We did get a great foot massage at Dr. Lilylu

A great place for bargains, but please learn how to bargain a price down before you arrive. You can get at least 50% off nearly all items available here. There are pubs/bars/discoteks towards the end of West Street that can be quite interesting. But please be aware of your belongings as there are a few serial pickpockets who loiter around.
