tourist trap but still interesting

Worth getting off the main street, away from the crowds,to explore what lies behind. And don't miss the temple.

Very nice place to visit, you can wander for hours in the narrow streets. The street food is good, especially the local noodles and jelly-ice-marmalade dessert

We spent a couple of hours in this little shopping street as part of our Wendy Wu tour. The cobbled shopping street with little side alley ways is really interesting. We saw a lot of locals lining up at particular food shops, we saw people carving, and throwing pottery items which we were then able to buy. Yep, it's touristy,... More

It has a wide variety of pottery displayed. Very well crafted and beautifully painted. It is a place worth visiting.

If you are expecting porcelain sculptures, then you might be disappointed! There are lots of traditional looking architecture that are filled with random stuff like keychains, bags, etc that are sold for a decent price. You'll need to bargain. Deeper down, there are very beautiful shops with wall paintings and decorations that are just stunning. These shops usually have more... More

It's pretty touristy place, mostly Chinese tourists wanting to take photos here and there. It was pretty cool to see how noodles were made and how local people trying to sell stuff, but must say that this wasn't the best place where to buy handmade local things. For 20 yuan/person you can get Thailand fish to nibble the dead skin... More
