A nice walk in a touristy area. The views up the street to the karst are special. There is one store on the right that sells authentic handcrafts-- their prices are exceedingly steep, but the work is beautiful (and they have very clean bathrooms)

All types of restaurants including fast food McDonald's and KFC. Amazing ambiance in the evening and lighting too. Apart from the restaurants, it's filled with shops from clothing to trinkets. Watch out for the prices though as locals hike up the prices even for Chinese from other parts of China!

Lots of little shops, good for a leisurely stroll around. We spend an hour or so, one could probably do more if you like to shop around.

Many shops and restaurants. Don't forget the laneways and streets running off West St. German restaurants selling German sausages ( made of China beef!) on the street front. Little lane opposite Macdonalds has Lucy's Rest/ hotel and a couple next door all do western breakfast and real coffee also cheap accomodation

I think that this place was ok, but not amazing. It's ok to visit for an afternoon. The people were friendly, and there was a variety of things on sale, but it was very touristy. Worth a visit I think. The surrounding area was very nice, and the walk to the top of the hill in the park gave some... More

Good little area to walk around and check out, eat some crazy street food and buy some scarves or other stuff. Try the bee honeycomb stuff the old ladies sell it is sort of like crystal sugar with a flowery taste.

If your idea of travel is a street of overpriced restaurants that cater only to tourists,then this place is perfect for you. Otherwise throw a dart at a map of china and you have found somewhere better.
