too crowded and too narrow. though it is crowded by visitrts, I am doubting any one wash the floor . There is a drain which stinks. There are many shops selling quite similar goods & souvenirs as expected.

A square with all the happenings. Busy, crowded, noisy with restaurants and bars fronting it. A meeting place of sorts and a mingling ground. Flavours and smells abound. Everything from tau foo to bugs and shrimps can be found grilled or stir fried on the woks. Dancers from the bars entice patrons with their performance. A great place to unwind!

There are many dance performances held in this square. A nice place to relax if you are tired of shopping. Down side is that there are many people who smoke and spit indiscriminately.

Where many bars and restaurants are located and the meeting place of people to begin the evenings. The central location in old town and a good landmark to find your way around the old town.

Was here for Christmas Eve 2013 with my wife, and we spent the entire night walking the old town and visiting different music bars, mostly standing out front or under their windows for a few minutes to take in a song and then move on. The food streets on our way to the square from the hotel were an amazing... More

Amazing and full of small shops with handmade products! You can also see some artisans doing silver bracelets or coloured scarfs in front of their shops! The prices are low but you can also bargain for lower prices! You can buy good teas and flower tea with a lot of benefits and taste them before buying! Moreover you can relax... More

The older Naxi women from the various surrounding villages go to the square each day to meet, chat and dance (keep active). Apart from the dancing, which they invite everyone to join in, there is often also other street entertainers in the square.

During daytime, this is just a new, big square with many shops and eateries around it. Men try to sell horse rides. Not particularly interesting.

At the entrance to old town where taxis can drop you off, the entrance to the right leads you towards bar street which is literally exactly as it sounds (and worth a night to experience). The highlight of Sifang is at 7pm every night after the sun has gone down, the locals congregate here to perform a dance in a... More
