a weekend away in Hangzhou
Aug 2018
Hangzhou snack street was very clean and had a ton of stalls of tasty street food to try out. We liked it a lot. But we visited in May 2018. However, our friends who went there recently also had good feedback for Hangzhou in general and also for the Hangzhou snack street.

If it's your first time in China, go ahead...

The snack street could be a gem if it's your first time in China, but for locals and ex pats that have been here for a while, it's nothing new. It's just street food all packed together. I didn't see one new item there. I do like to visit snack streets in each city but I usually find something new and exciting to try. Here it was the same old thing as everywhere else so I wasn't impressed. The prices were a bit higher but it could have been because we were there during Golden Week (October 1-7)

Every nights

We stayed in Hangzhou 5 nights and at the beginning we tried a famous restaurant, it was OK but definitely for tourists because all the restaurants propose almost the same menu and even the same photos. As soon as discovered more Hangzhou smaller streets, we found the best food in the street in the evening. It's very special to see the merchants running and pushing their cars and to get their places from 6 pm. The first one to set-up will be the first one to make the first sale and money. It's very well organized and all the cars are standardized and clean. A lot of security and police are passing by. We did not know the reason and if it was unsecured, however we feel very happy to go back there every evening.

One great place near Gao Yin Jie
Aug 2014 • Solo
Found the place by accident, when looking for the post office on Gaoying Street, next to a bus stop. And didn't realize first, it was one end of the snack street. They are selling those crabs, and other things like veggies on skewers, that you just put on a tray after selecting and the guy will then fry it for you. I always saw the place packed, which is aways a good sign and guarantees fresh snacks as they have a high turnover.
Grab a table and enjoy your snacks with cold beer. They also had beggars chicken, that looked delicious. Low key, simple fresh, cheap, but definitely a must! The other places didn't really encourage me to try them, but it was packed with Chinese tourists, that seemed to enjoy them!

Hefang the Old Street of Hangzhou
Apr 2013 • Solo
Hangzhou, also translaterated as Hangchow, is the capital and largest city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. Hangzhou is also the center of the Hangzhou Metropolitan Area, which is the fourth-largest metropolitan area.

The International Airport is Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport. From there, you can catch a taxi or airport shuttle bus to the downtown area, which is 27 kilometers away. The cheapest way is using the shuttle bas to the main city. The cost is about 20 yuan. It will stop in the heart of the city.

The waiting room for the shuttle bus is near the north of Entrance 5 at the Arrival Hall on the first floor. The shuttle takes passengers to Wulin Gate stop at downtown Hangzhou.

Operation hours: 7:30am-9:30pm, intervals at 30 minutes. 9:30am-5pm, intervals at 15 minutes. (Note: intervals refer to the waiting time from the first passenger boarding the bus).

Hefang Old Street in Hangzhou is unique by showcasing a variety of Chinese crafts, such as land-blown sugar candy, paper-cutting and hand-made dough figurines. You can also find a large variety of local snacks such as roasted walnuts, and "dragon-whisker" candy. The street is full of art hawkers, candy sculptors, pillow shops, caricaturists, old-fashioned movie players, storytellers, bonsai shops, tea houses, and an array of small eateries, to make Hefang Street charmingly live. Till today you will find the old architecture. As if you are walking in the past.

The street stretches from Wushan Square all the way down to Zhonghe road. Turn right and you’ll end up at the Drum Tower Antique market. You will old stuff, you can pick up some new. There are the touristy tidbits: swords, masks, paintings, chops, tea, etc. But, you can also find some interesting stuff. Be prepared to bargain.

Along the both sides the street, you will find a number of restaurants and tea houses are placed closely side by side.They sell one of the best chinese tea in the world. It is an ideal place to for tourists to buy unique souvenirs and experience the ancient and traditional Chinese culture. It is very close to the west lake

Local Delights Wow

Hanzhou Snack Street is located at the end of Hefang Street.Look for a sign known as "Datong Food Lane" if i am not mistaken... Something, like that...Food is really cheap and its authentic Hanzhou food. You can order many dishes and try it out. Try the chicken that is boiled in a BIG BIG pot using clay or mud. Not sure how they did it but this is one of the delights. Slightly dirty but it's worth a try.

Eats off the beaten path
Hangzhou food is heavy on the use of sugar, soy sauce, and oil. Popular restaurants in Hangzhou include Zhi Wei Guan and Lou Wai Lou.

A more adventruous option would be to head over to the snack street - a cluster of food stalls down a small sidestreet serving popular snacks from the region.

The food is cheap (nothing over 10 RMB) so you can mix and match and try a little bit of everything. It is a much more informal and relaxing way to sample the local food.

Just ask one of the locals where to go, they will have no problem giving you directions.
