While Zhongshan may be an unremarkable industrial city now, it was once a lively trading port in southern China. Sunwen West Road, which once housed the affluent traders and merchants, is the best place to understand the Guangdong city's colorful past. The rows of nicely restored rowhouses and distinctive towers form an impressive cityscape. Tourists can easily spend an enjoyable afternoon here.

I would suggest you to walk around there in the evening when it is not that hot and humid. You can kill some time there doing window shopping and try out some street food. Good thing that no motor vehicles are allowed in the entire area. You would end up 'QiJiang' River. There are more shops by the river and street performances in summer nights. There is a nice dessert shop along the river area that I liked their "steamed milk egg", "ginger milk", "double layers skin milk". I loved the dessert there.

There were many American known shops ie Nike, Starbuck around on this area of shopping. Many street foods you can find along the street. It was nice to find the old converted houses into shops and restaurants

Nice area and many old buildings around, a good place to found some small interesting things, lastly you may go to the riverside area with some Chinese and western cafe, good restaurants are easy found inside the old shopping arcades.

There is nothing to do. I would never recommend this street BUT if you are foreigner and live in Zhongshan, you already know that there is nothing to do in Zhongshan at all 😏 so you can just take a walk. After that you can easily reach river side. There is a mall called Parkson. You can also visit there. Thats it

This street gives an interesting insight into the zhongshan of the past. Buildings are well preserved, and the spots of interest are well signposted in Chinese and English.
We visited during the day, and the style of shopping in all the restored buildings is completely out of character. It's all clothing, handbags, shoes. No one in the shops even looking at what's for sale.
Wandering further up the street away from the river, once the pedestrian section finishes, you'll find an extensive Buddhist temple on the left up a set of stairs. It's being renovated at present ( November '16), but worth a look.

What a fab small town Zhongshan is!I was very surprised to find that it had way more to offer than I had anticipated but then my expectations were low due to the lack of information in English about it. Quite a bit of the old town has been well-preserved, with some quirky, old-fashioned shops and houses, an interesting museum of the radio, a Sun Yat Sen museum, beautiful riverside-lovely to walk along in the evening;excellent park right across the river-used to be the old docks I believe; multiple other arks and yes, Sunwen Rd. I absolutely loved strolling along this long avenue, lined with colonial-style buildings. It is a bit of a shame that it tends to be noisy and the shops along this road are low-end, market-style ones with questionable quality snack stalls as I believe it would have been much more pleasant to have some restaurants with outdoor seating and somewhat classier and less noisy businesses there but nevertheless, it is a very pretty street and I would strongly recommend seeing it as well as exploring the rest of Zhonghshan.

We passed this street on the way to a restaurant. The buildings are nice but it is a noisy street and not really pedestrian. Motorcycles are working their ways through the masses. Shops are all alike and most sell clothes. Towards the East part of the road (which is not officially part of the pedestrian street anymore) you find the entrance to the Sun Yet Sen memorial hall. South of this street you can find some interesting rural area's which are nice to explore.

So... OK for a stroll but just turn South once in a while and explore the streets around.

It's a nice walk with lots of places to shop. Perfect for souvenirs of Zhongshan. A bit crowded but it's enjoyable.
