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.

It's worth a look as it has a few decent shops, bars and restaurants along the way, however it is mainly annoying locals selling the usual junk on the street and bars blasting out Chinese tunes to try and tempt passersby in. There was a shop about two-thirds of the way along selling household and electrical goods, and we liked... More

The street is noisy, overcrowded and dirty. The only pleasant part of it we found is near West Street International Youth Hostel. Address: 102 West Street Yangshuo 541900. It is small quiet appendix along charming channel with no shops and few good Western restaurants.

This was one of the best things that we did in Guilin, it's very attractive with a lot of motion, restaurants and street selling vendors. It's very colorful in the streets and a lot of places to eat.

Worse than Time Square. Too many people and shops. Hardly found space to walk among the crowds. No different from other busy shopping places.

There're quite a number of unique shops along the street and many of them were handicraft, even the candies were made instantly as you made your purchases. You can taste it before buying them actually though it's indeed a tourist spot.

There isn't too much to do at night after watching Impression Sanjie Liu and West Street fills in the gap nicely. It's touristy but there are good shopping and fun around.

Several souvenir shops to buy different kind of souvenirs, xue hua gao(a type of lotion that can be found in China), indie arts, local art crafts, jewelleries shop, clothing store and more. Commercial street to attract tourists or other youngster to... More

It was cold (mid December), West Street was brightly lit up with its shop frontage signs in neon's and street hawkers and vendors keen to sell, It was Christmas and one could see that the shop keepers did not want to miss out on any commercial advantage! Even the remoter and rural parts of China i.e. West Street vendors have... More
