It is a busy and interesting area, good for photography. The street sells a lot of cheap stuff. Not easy to cross the streets thought with lots of motorcycles around.

In haikou, you don't have so many place to visit but Qilou is one of the interesting spots. Gives you quite a different feelings from your average Chinese shopping street. Would be more feeling like a travel to Vietnam or Portugal.
