Every night we did a walk through this area. Most of the souvenirs we bought here for good prices. Near the Weststreet opposite Riverview Hotel' most fantastic Night bbq! Don´t miss that!

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.

After being on the boat for almost 4 hours, which was really beautiful, West Street lies in stark contrast. You actually have to go down this street before you can get in your transportation to drive to your hotels. Although we didn't eat here, I did do a bit of shopping and the prices were reasonable after sufficient bargaining. But... More

Bad karaoke-type singing from every other bar. Neon and pushy "in-throwers". Mice and rats. Over priced. With the beauty surrounding the city, and the cozy hotels, such as the Hidden Dragon, on the outskirts, do yourself the favour: Don't end up at West Street. This makes the Spanish cities on the Sun Coast look authentic.

After four hours on the Li River boat and strolling down West Street for half an hour in the heat, we gave up and headed straight to the other end to KFC for cooling down, a drink and a bite (lunch on the cruise boat was not really edible). West Street is comparatively a nice tourist street with lots of... More

We had to walk along this street after disembarking from our river boat and going to meet our coach. The street has some fascinating shops and restaurants, with street entertainers also keeping us amused. The shops are mainly selling souvenirs, plus some food stalls. For westerners, there is a KFC and a McDonalds.

Our first experience of West Street was in the walk from the cruise boat to our hotel during the day. At that time it seemed to have an abundance of souvenir sellers and T shirt stores. By night the mood changes, with lots of neon lights and loud music and the bars and nightclubs are more obvious. It is significantly... More
