Wide street with side alleys, clean, easy to navigate.

A wide variety of vendors, goods and food. We found some fruit we've never seen before, and watched the oyster opening to reveal pearl stores, plus ate at 'stupid duck'. It's... read more

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...

Xiamen is suffering from traffic jam even at nighttime when you go downtown. Here prefer the small pedestrian streets or mall to enjoy the shopping or surprising architecture. Not the priority for me in Xiamen. Keep in mind that bus are crowded even 10:30pm and taxi will apply the price they want ...

It is a good location to take a walk to see lots of local products for offer. Usually crowded with tourists on weekends. Be careful on what you buy as some of the shops do not label the prices on their products. But overall it a good place to go if you want to pick up some travel gifts.

A wide variety of vendors, goods and food. We found some fruit we've never seen before, and watched the oyster opening to reveal pearl stores, plus ate at 'stupid duck'. It's probably a tourist trap, but hey we were tourists:-) Some handy self serve banks nearby.

Busy pedestrian shopping street, with a large variety of stores. Nice to do in the evening. Some excellent restaurants around, especially in the shopping malls. Be careful when taking a taxi here (and elsewhere in Xiamen). The taxi driver wanted to bring us somewhere else (a restaurant of probably a friend) and once we had forcefully insisted we wanted to...

Apart from the senior citizens who are allowed to ride their electric bikes or bicycles, there are guards stationed at the 2 ends to stop all other bike riders from riding in the vehicle free street. Thus, it makes for a nice leisurely stroll on this shopping and eating street. Food is good, shopping is good - what more could... More

Seems like the place the local young people go to hang out. Saw some tourist like ourselves among the crowd. Wide variety of shops and food to high end stores. Interesting way to spend a few hours.
