only (chinese) tourist shops, lots of people. Good to spend an hour to walk up and down if weather is bad but has no special character.

We walked around West Street in the evening and the place reminds me of the night markets I had visited in Taiwan. Once you get off the ferry from the Li River Cruise, there are many stalls but with no price signs. However, as you explore deeper into West Street, price signs are up and just a bit cheaper. As...

If you are looking for Western food and drinks this is the place. This might be good at certain point, but if you are looking for something special, this is not the place to be. Everything is addressed to tourists. It really depends on what you are looking for.

This street is the highlight of our China tour. In the evening its crazy, beautiful, fun and joyful. This street has a happiness factor of 100%! Shops, restaurants, bars, street food, music, happy people.... I wish I could stroll this street atleast once a month to forget all the world problems!

We had a quick dinner here at one of the sit down restaurants before the Impression Liusanjie show. This place is full of bars, restaurants and vendors. People are just there having a good time.

Fun street - busy on weekends even in low season, quiet on weekdays - BOOMING loud music on one side street every night. Great hawkers and gadgets / toys for sale every evening.

There are touts for the shops all along the road and it's hard to appreciate that this is an ancient place. Everything is over priced.

Too noisy and not interesting. I guess it is fun for backpackers but if you're not into partying, don't lose time and go to the parallel street where you will find restaurants.

Your trip to Yangshuo will never be complete without at least passing by this place. I guess this is like any other street / night market but with a character. Maybe because of the mountains. There are many restaurants even huge ones but not much people eating maybe because it is off season. I suggest you find where the locals... More

The opportunity to buy cheap things at higher prices than other places. Nice to look at but they always want you to come and look.
