“Interesting Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Very nice and interesting street, full of stalls and shops selling all kinds of great things. You can see a lot of calligraphy here, scultures out of jade and you can also see some vendors playing the Xun - that's a really beautiful small instrument that reminded me of a flute. The music it makes is really pleasant. If you like artworks, crafts, then you should go. If you need some souvenirs to take home to your friends and family, then you can find plenty here!
