Going back in time

A really lovely place for an evening stroll as well as stepping back in time. Lots of restaurants and a nice way to spend a few hours. Would definitely recommend.

Haikou History
Jul 2020 • Family
Qilou Old Street features a fusion of Asian and European architecture, with touches too of Indian and Arabic styles. The arcade houses are influenced by the overseas Chinese merchants who built them.

The ground floor is set back into the building providing a covered verandah sheltering the shops from the sun and rain with the living quarters on the upper levels

In the evenings there is street snack food. It's certainly worth a stroll if you are spending any time in Haikou.

Old, but not ancient
Jun 2020
A very commercialized street loaded with shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, beautiful bronze statues, each telling their own story, and more. Nice for an evening walk after a day at the beach.

Old street with european design shops along the street
May 2019
Well, it is good to see a European touch in the shops building along this old street. Shops here found to sell various product, there is convenience store, restaurant, pharmacy, etc. One shop sell local fresh drink, I don;t know the name of the drink but it is mixed some local fruit with lemonade, feel very fresh one to drink under the heat of Haikou. One thing, be careful with the e-bikes as they have no sound and many of them running along the street, this street is busy with the kind of bike, be careful when you are walking or cross the street..

Qilou Old Street is overrated
Jan 2020 • Family
This place is great for taking pics but food is not great. The expectations that we had from other traveling sources didn't match what we saw. The restaurant that we were in had other customers smoking during meals which made the experience not enjoyable. Nonetheless, it's good to say that we have been there and done that.

Haikou conservation area
Dec 2019 • Family
Buildings were well conserved.

A good repertoire of different types of local shops selling local food, local drinks, trinkets, tourist stuff.

Good photo spots with full size bronze/brass figurines.

Beyond Zhongshan Road Qilou shops, there are plenty of local trade shops in the entire area.
Best perood to visit is during the winter season as the walk through the local area is more pleasant and cool.

Interesting area worth exploring.
Oct 2019 • Friends
This area in Haikou, Hainan, China is quite busy. It's popular with tourists and locals.

Here you can find lots of old 'architecture' houses. Shops selling simple toys to modern appliances. Food is available at each turn. From traditional street fare to fancy restaurants and foreign fast food shops.

Nice walk along the street of the Qilou Old Street area
Oct 2019
This area is designed to become an area having preserved heritage buildings with walking streets for tourists to enjoy, there are bronze statutes 1:1 scale for tourists to take pictures, the streets are not crowded on an average day but many shops open till 21:00. Not so many commercial selling as can be seen in other cities where tourists often visit. Apart from the intentionally cleaned and managed streets in the core zone, a few minutes walk will lead to other old streets with more original look and one can meet people from all walks of life; a bazaar type local market selling fish and vegetables etc. is just nearby, but its wet and mostly for locals to buy their daily food. An interesting place with no franchised fast food store or modern supermarkets among the shops in this old area.
