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.

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

Staying at this street for 3N make me easy to find what I really wanted. Bargain is a must whenever you want to buy something along this street that flooded with tourists. The price displayed quite high so, bargain is the only way to get a cheaper price. There is a few shops offered affordable price. For people like me... 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.
