There's nothing really about this place that I can recommend. The shops are ordinary. Every fifth store is about fitness. There's hardly any visitors inside the stores! It is pedestrianized and that's good. But nothing special about the pace at all.

Watch out for the mopeds! They zip through the middle of the road so best to stay along the shops for safety. This was a nice place to check out. The shops are geared towards the locals. However, we did find a seamster that could hem pants for $4 yuan a pair, what a deal! I bet this area would... More

Nice pedestrian street lined on both sides by historical building from the early 1900s. Snacks are everywhere but shopping is not geared for westerners. You may find some souvenirs but the clothing are local style. The museum in the middle is very interesting with models and photographs depicting life at the end of Qing Dynasty.

This is the place you want to go if you want to buy presents and stuff. Every thing from mobile accessories to cloths to bags to toys to jewelry are available covering a wide range of prices. You get branded stuff in brand outlets as well as common man's stuff in rest of the places alike. What you buy is... More

The people of Zhongshan are friendly and it is fun to casually stroll. We usually avoid the tourist streets, but this one has redeeming qualities. In spite of the modern music blaring in the air (to draw your attention to stores) you can can feel the history around you. This town has long been subject to foreign influence and evidence... More

This street could be a 5-star attraction if the government understood Sustainable Tourism. Instead, this street is full of noisy, repetitive, completely boring, cheap copy-cat sports apparel stores. Go to Macau and walk to Saint Paul's for a FAR better experience.

Nothing much to see. Only modern shops. I think Chinese tourist likes but for me it was nothing special. I wanted to see normal Chinese market and traditional shops. All the buildings look like something not from China.

A very nice pedestrian street, full of shops and street food booths. Good place for a pleasant walk. Together with the promenade on the bank of Shiqi river is worth to see. I liked to sit down on a bench and look at the colorful crowd of people passing Sunwen Str. Only music in shops was too loud!

Pedestrian Street isn't that special. It's a pedestrian only street with shops which shouldn't be much of a novelty for travelers from the west. However, when you visit at night there's a lot of great things to see and do in the immediate surroundings. The lights are beautiful, there's a light pagoda nearby and just a short walk away there's... More
