    Xiamen's main tourist street
    Like other major Chinese cities, Xiamen has a lively shopping street a.k.a. Zhongshan Road. At the Fujian city's historic downtown, the street is full of local eateries and souvenir shops. Beyond its touristy vibe, the rows of buildings along the street are impressive and worth a glance.

    Take a stroll and snap photos, don't spend unnecessary money
    Bright city lights in the walking streets, well preserved post 1920s buildings but that all. You will see a series of identical chain shops as you walk the 1 mile road. Food price is expensive and not up to par. Probably the side streets might be better. Only good for photography

I've been to quite a few pedestrian streets in China and would say this is the most average of the ones I have seen. We found ourselves walking through this area because we were going to check out other areas around it. The architecture is interesting but it is a plain pedestrian area. There are some of the Xiamen food items here but they are a tad overpriced.

Very nice evening strolling with eating and drinking, nice people around. We didn't spent too much time, yet we were filled with pleasant feeling of another vacation day. It's probably better to visit in the evening.

Especially nice at night when it is more colourful. There are many stores offering reasonably priced goods, a variety of restaurants, and cafes.

This is a must go shopping street in Xiamen. There is plenty of food and shopping available. You can go for piaza hut(I think it is like 40 stories high) which overlooks the Guyangyu Island. Excellent view.
Along these streets, they have street fairs every weekend starting from Friday. You can get imported Taiwan stuff there.

**Please remember to check prices at different stores before buying. Especially dried items as the prices at different stalls can range quite big. Try to go with a local if possible as the stalls will always try to rip foreigners.
I went to a shop to buy dried fruits. Price quoted to me was 80CNY per kg. When I went with a local, it was 40CNY per kg!

I came to Xiamen on the very first day of China's Golden Week. I really appreciate the full meaning of the Chinese proverb 人山人海 when I walked along this Zhongshan Pedestrian Street.

It was a sea of human crowd flooding the entire commercial area. You can really feel the festive mood at this place. It is so vibrant and dynamic with pulsating music and songs blasting from most shops and you thought this would not end. People were so relaxed leisurely patronizing one shop after another and the roads were closed to traffic after night.

Buses were so crowded that you hardly had the chance to squeeze your way up on board the bus. I almost lost myself in the euphoria of the festive mood and suddenly realized like Cinderalla that I had to rush back to my hostel at Xiamen North and was worried not able to catch the last bus back. Most buses that ply along the main Zhongshan Street were so packed like sardines and the bus driver refused to open the front bus door. I managed to walk further down to the cruise center and catch a bus back.

I really enjoyed my leisure walk along this pedestrian street. Most shops enticed you with their promotional items. The shops are generous enough to let you sample their sale products be it mango slices, coconut juices, flower drinks or barbequed pork, tea. So, I hop from one shop to another sampling as much of the free food. I suspected the free food samples food must have added saccharin or some other sweeteners which caused me my thirstiness.

There were many restaurants and eateries selling seafood sets. But it was costly as a set meal may cost a bomb of more than RMB 250. But the colorful layout on the stall was so tempting and attractive. Xiamen is a coastal city abundant with seafood and this make Zhongshan Pedestrian Street different from the rest of the commercial streets in the inner part of China.

The beautiful architectural designs of the lighted arcade buildings along this street adds a taste of Western atmosphere to this commercial street. Most of the shops were originally built by the overseas Chinese who returned from South East Asia. The architectural designs combined the British style with the Nanyang flavor. The romantic aesthetic features captured the visitors' hearts when the neon lights were turned on at night.

The whole Pedestrian street is so overwhelmed with crowds on the Golden Week and that makes this commercial street so spectacular with the festive mood.
