Don't get lost
Aug 2019
We were dropped off here by our guide for a couple of hours on our own. It was like a maze with streets going all directions. One can easily get lost in these busy streets lined with colorful shops and restaurants. All very interesting to see. We did not eat there but there seemed to be lots of choices for those who are into local street foods. Make sure to use the public restrooms first before exploring.

Evening snacks
Nov 2019 • Couples
We took a cab from Pan Pacific hotel to this night market, which costed 29 RMB (4 USD) walking across the pedestrian bridge, we reached the night market. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the snacks. This night market is vibrant and full of tourists from all over China, everyone was cheerful and enjoying the cool evening browsing eating all sorts of snacks. We have been traveling extensively in China for the past fifteen years, which we leaned to have an opened mind and very glad to see that China is prospering and still maintaining its own local culture. Overall, we had good time at this lively night market; great atmosphere.

Well equipped Tourist Trap
Oct 2019 • Couples
Tourist trap for street food. Xiamen’s a top domestic tourist destination: many of the “locals” you see are just as clueless as you and probably less well travelled. It shows in the crowds queuing for undercooked prata (called “Indian flying cakes”), in the lumpy octopus balls, and MSG porridge. If you want local food, explore the local restaurants instead. We spent close to the same amount on street food here in one night, as we did on fine dining (CNY400).

And yet we’d booked a hotel near this place so we found ourselves heading back for ice cream every night. It wasn’t even that good, or even cheap, but we needed snacks.

If you’re here for work, also note that you can buy all your souvenirs here - the tart, nougat, and pork slice shops are all the same.

Quite a good area to walk around
Jun 2019 • Family
Although the taxi driver said there is nothing during the day time but when we got there, it was a blow. Lots of people, lots of local street food and lots of things to shop. It is right opposite a beach and it could be a good rest area.

Xiamen `Shilin Night Market'
Oct 2018 • Solo
I came to Xiamen during the Golden Week. I did not purposely come to visit this `fishing village'. I was strolling my way from Xiamen University along the coastal beach and somewhere near Baicheng Beach, I saw a heavy crowd causing a traffic jam at the overhead bridge linking from the beach to the other side of the road.

Out of curiosity, I walked up to the overhead bridge and saw the crowd was pushing their way to cross the bridge to a heavily packed `shopping centre' across the other side of the road. I was puzzled what attract the crowd to this `Zeng Cuo An Village' until I walked into the alleys and saw with open eyes the bustling `Shilin Night Market' of this village.

Lines of food stalls occupied both sides of the narrow alleys and the crowd were like sardines. The narrow alleys were very well lit by sparkling neon lighting. The food vendors were competing at the top of their voices to attract their customers. The stall display were awesome and the gorgeous varieties of food were so tempting and mouthwatering. There were the stalls selling Ankara Turkey ice-cream, the Indian `flying saucers' of roti prata, barbequed seafood meats with sticks of cuttlefishes, Taiwanese snacks. There are also stalls selling mango fruit, coconut juices and tea.

The stalls were very clean, well maintained, hygienic and appealing. Although the crowd was so packed, you hardly heard incidents of pick-pockets trying their luck here.

I was delighted and amazed by the culinary displays and `exhibition' here. It is touristy and I think the food may not be that cheap, I found great joy and satisfaction just to mingle with the crowd and enjoyed seeing the specialty food and cuisine offered by each stall.

If you like wandering around night markets like Shilin Night Market in Taiwan, then this is another Chinese version of the Shilin Night Market. The food range is wide and spectacular. Only I could not find our Singapore food like satay, mee goring, mee rebus, etc at this place.

It is a pleasure to stroll along the windy Xiamen beach that is studded with palm trees, listening to the splashing of the waves against the shores, appreciating the view of the beautiful sunset as it disappeared in the horizon and then walked over to this atmospheric Zeng Cuo An Village to sample the gorgeous food here. .

Street food heaven
Dec 2018 • Business
Our first tourist stop while visiting Xiamen. First taste of local snacks and food with many stalls, perhaps too many, to try out. An eye opener. Of course many stalls are selling the same food. Can find a few souvenirs shops.

Lots of food, near to the beach

Another tourist spot. Lots of food stalls and souvenir shops. Convenient to get there by bus. Beach is just across the road. Go with an empty stomach and be prepared to squeeze.

Just food
Aug 2018 • Solo
The place is just full of food stalls. Nothing much of the old village is presented. Near seaside. Too touristic.
