One of the most famous places in Yangshuo. Actually there is nothing too special, but worth a visit. Just enjoy the typical Chinese atmosphere here: many people, crowded, noisy ;)

I visited West Street (also known as 'Foreigners' Street') during a hot (35C) and humid early August afternoon. The street is an 'S' shape along its length. Pros: -Pedestrianised. -A few shops selling quality items, if you know where to look eg The Xiang Culture Arts & Handicrafts Shop (expensive but quality). We had a guide when we visited. -Numerous...

Almost every stall and shop sells the same things, so you can really take your pick. I bought the embroidred long purses at a stall at the very end at a very good price, even cheaper than when I bought the same thing in Kunming last year. You can also head for places where there are less customers. They ae... More

Good place to go for shopping and food. If you need to shop while in China, buy it here if you can. Some of the best shopping prices we saw on our entire tour in China. Can get very crowded, especially at night.

Visit west street at night, plenty of restuarants, street food Market stalls and shops, to choose from. The crowds can be big and there are plenty of bars open. The only place to go of an evening in Yangshuo!

Yangshuo was the very first place I stopped in China. I stayed there for 3 weeks, then a few months later, 2 weeks again. My first arrival was in March and it was often so foggy, I thought the famed mountains must've been somewhere far away. I was staying at an international hostel run by the English teaching school I... More

This is an area entirely devoted to market stalls, but is fun to walk through, even if the traders are more pushy than most.

This area is very touristy but it's a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon & evening browsing the shops, grabbing a bite to eat & having a drink. We only had a couple of hours to spend here. I would have liked more time to just hang out.

It's a one street area developed for tourists to eat, shop and drink ! Plenty of night spots & eateries along with souvenirs. I did buy some small sweet citrus fruits for supper. Nothing much !
