Save for the new signs and shops of western origin, I could still see the old traces of the buildings on this road that I used to prowl in the early 90s. It is nice that is now a pure pedestrian zone. Almost all the shops I used to know are gone but the Donghai is still there albeit with... More

Too many motorcycles moving around and locals do not need to disembark from their motorcycles to haggle the prices or view / try the clothings for size etc . Walkway obstructed by thes motorbikes . very messy .

Well. This street is the most famous street of Xiamen. Crowded, Nice Shops, many Jewelery shops and especially tea sellers at the every corner. However, it is incredibly expensive area. For example, they did not accept any bargain when I was buying some tea but I was shocked to see 1/3 price of the same tea in Walmart in Xiamen.... More

I have been travelling China for close to 20 years and have seen too many walking streets. This is just another over priced walking street that can be found in many cities in China. Duplicate items and duplicate stores abound. Surely you have street food everywhere. However be careful. Not all street food is created equal. Some handle food better... More

Touristy shopping area with walking only road in the daytime. Be aware of prices as they are higher than other parts of Xiamen.

It's very nice at night, if you like shopping this is just the place. A little expensive, but you can bargain, especially if you speak a little Chinese. There are also many good restaurants.

Have visited Xiamen twice now and it is my favourite large Chinese city. By Chinese standards it is very clean and just seems less crowded. The street food and small restaurants in Zhongshan Rd and surrounding streets is sensational.
