This place is better know as San Fang Qi Xiang, 三坊七巷 which means Three Lanes and Seven Alleys. This place is tastefully developed into a commercial street. If you get too much of a culture shock, there is also a MacDonald's. Other than the shops, some of the house has great historical value. Many of the houses are opened as... More

Took a metered taxi from my hotel. Tell the drive to drop you at the main gate of Nanhou street. (Tell the hotel staff to tell the driver if you cannot speak Chinese). 南后街 All attractions in downtown Fuzhou can be reached by metered taxi avoid paying those expensive local day tours. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This is a walking street closed to...

Exactly what you expect from an alley. Full of people and vendors, lots of tastes things and little knick knacks to buy. Overall it was a lot of fun. Be careful of the some of the restaurants though because it is easy to get ripped off.

I stumbled onto this street in the early evening while taking a stroll northward from Intercontinental Hotel after check-in. I was attracted by the lit up silhouettes of the old shop houses lining Nanhou Street, which is the spine of the area known as Sanfangqixiang (meaning Three Streets and Seven Lanes). The more famous lanes extending from Nanhou Street include... More

Mixed reactions from tourists and travelers about this place but for me, I especially like it! Seeing the shops housed on these traditional stone buildings from Old China just makes shopping and sightseeing a lot more historical. Sculptures of different Chinese famous people can also be found at the sides of the alleys with English inscriptions and a short history.... More

While I appreciate the historical relevance and museums of how people once lived in old Fuzhou. This has unfortunately like any other quaint historical quarter found all over America and Europe where tourist stands and Starbucks now dominate the streets. Really ruins the charm. Power of Disneyland Main Street in a Chinese setting now is the main theme park. Last... More
