The main shopping and tourist street in Yangshuo, very crowded at night, when all of the groups come here to shop. Especially, there are a lot of Chinese tourists. Much better to visit it by day, preferable before 1 pm, when the boats hasnt arrived yet! On the whole, a nice place to do some shopping for souvenirs, but be... More

At night time during your visit to Gui Ling, you should not miss the opportunity to stroll the West Street, wherein we could find many local restaurants, handy craft sellers and bars. The place is so crowded, but many fun and attractions as well as foods could be found there.

This was a street full of souvenir shops and restaurants with lots of energy. It was very busy at night. We managed to find some good bargains. Be prepared to offer 1/3 the price and stick to it and walk away. We ate in a restaurant Rose Garden which was comfortable but the food was ordinary. It is nice to... More

I've been too many streets just like this all over China - in terms of what's being sold, it's the usual tourist souvenirs and snack foods. Love it or hate it, I just happen to like street markets like this. I rarely eat snacks from these types of places in China due to questionable quality but it doesn't spoil the... More

Having seen this kind of street in most of China's touristy towns and cities, I would never buy anything here. It's filled with souvenirs and trinkets, brand knock-offs and all manner of fast- and snack food. But it's pretty and fairly eclectic, the atmosphere is nicely buzzy, and the vendors are less intrusive than is usual in these highly commercialized... More

Souvenirs and more than a few restaurants to choose from, good busy place to hangout at in a relatively relaxing city. We found a restaurant on the 2nd floor overlooking the busy intersection from the balcony.

Lots happening, lots of great shopping, lots of touristy shopping too. An hour in the heat was enough - had to keep going into shops with AC!

If you want to see tourist, to buy souvenirs, it is the place. But even the nice old building are hardly visible covered by neon and publicity

West Street was a great place for a relaxing wander through the mix of stalls, shops and restaurants, all with the karst mountains as a backdrop. The restaurants were amazing in that the food was really good but surprisingly inexpensive. We only had a day there this time, but if we get the chance to return we would certainly stay... More

We went in the hight if summer and it was full of Chinese tourists. It was fun to walk around, people watch and get a few cheap souvenirs. Wouldn't have wanted to stay here for a week but was fun for a night or two.
