I visited the place with my colleague. Very interesting place. Lot of shops all around where you can buy modern and ethnic Chinese goods. Variety of food stalls are there. Bargaining in some shops are necessary

like any high street during the day, like many Chinese towns and cities this one comes to life at night when the temperature drops, some of the street food has to be seen to be believed.

Closed to traffic and crowded on a Saturday late morning, we wandered through the shops marveling at all the local food, tea and souvenir shops, clothings, shoes. If its your first trip to Xiamen like us, you will find the pedestrainised street interesting though the summer heat is killing. Make sure you drink plenty of water through out the day.... More

So it's a tourist street with all the brand names, glitzy lights and over priced goods and snacks. Not really my cup of tea but worth a visit anyway. I rather Taiwan snack street just 2 mins walk as its more laid back and not as crowded.

When living in other big cities, you will not find interestingly different shops. However, it was comparably quiet.

You have to go there late afternoon to avoid the heat of the sun. Learn how to bargain since prices are usually high. Try eating their street foods but be careful when you eat seafoods, check if it is fresh.

I went here because it is recommended in many guides. Quite disappointing. The pavements are crowded, shops repeat themselves, prices are too high. Wouldn't recommend to buy anything here or even to visit

I've walked up and down this street probably 100 times. There are some good street food spots nearby, and there's a handful of decent restaurants nearby. It's basically a tourist street. It's not a good shopping destination though.

First lesson to learn- take lots of small notes before you take a taxi here in town, as most drivers do not carry change, apparently! Also same goes for this market as prices had a habit of being rounded up when traders were presented with a large note that banks seem to love giving you. One enterprising chap standing outside...
