Bustling and quite fun, especially after dark. Some lingering Western hippy-style presence, but almost all the tourists here are Chinese.

It's funny to walk down it to see locals selling all kinds of wacky stuff and trying to make money any way they can, like walking around with their domesticated animals. But the restaurants and shops here are overpriced and tacky. Make sure you haggle if you absolutely need to buy the knicknacks they are selling. I don't think I... More

This is the main street running through the town, with loud bars and numerous shops with stuff for tourists. Not my favourite part of Yangshuo.

A real experience and having a resident with me the prices stayed low.Forgive me tour groups but it is best for local visitors to shop when there is not an influx of tour groups as it gets rather crowded

West street is the most popular pedestrian shopping street in Yangshuo and cater to foreign and local tourists alike. Similar to the pedestrian shopping streets everywhere, there are plenty of shops selling souvenirs and local produces. Many hotels , eateries , restaurants and bars are located here. This place is always crowded from morning to late night and packed with... More

At night, there's a lot of busy bars and a lot of stalls set up to sell souvenirs. West St reminded me of a Greek / Spanish resort that is aimed at European tourists. There's US style bars, German bars, English bars and not a great deal of Chinese stuff. The place seems to be a good starting point for... More

Fun to walk down and explore the area. Shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Don't miss the indoor market. Lots to see..and forget. Fruits, veg, snacks, and animals, ready to purchase and be butchered, some the domestic variety. Saw things I wish I hadn't. Friend tried to take a photo and they tried to take his camera away. Most 'raw' market I've... More

Happy we went to see it, just walked through and had great Chinese dinner on the way. If you are looking for souvenirs I'm sure you can find some here - otherwise "same same but different", most shops selling same things, many very noisy bars but surprisingly VERY clean! Should be quite nice during the day - very bus in... More

Street hawkers kept bothering us to sell us bird whistles, frog noise makers and other rubbish. That said it was better at night with most restaurants filled, and bars busy. Don't come to Yanshuo for West Street but if in Yangshuo it is worth a walk especially in the evening.
