Awful. Sorry to say. It is a reconstruction of what an old Chinese town centre might have been. But none of the buildings appear to be particularly old. The shops are mostly restaurants or those that cater to selling rubbish to tourists. Of course, there...More
It can get a bit busy especially during public holidays, at other times it is fine and you can pleasantly walk about.
Explore the traditional street that sell souvenirs, gifts, food, tea, precious metals,etc. You can get snack on the move from one of the...More
This is the town’s “old street,” where efforts have been made to preserve the look and feel of an ancient Chinese city. However, it is overrun by tourist-trap shops that repeat endlessly. If you don’t mind the crowds, thisc is a fine place to stroll...More
It is a great place to take a stroll and buy some famous Hangzhou Longjin tea. It has plenty of atmosphere with hawkers shouting their wares and abundant morsels offered up for tasting. There are also plenty of arts and crafts kiosks and a large...More
As a pedestrian mall it's ok. A few blocks of renovated, older buildings fronting a cobblestone/tiled walking only street with nice lights to add to the ambience make for a generally pleasant evening. My only beef is with the variety of stores, or lack of....More

It's not very crowded there because locals think it's too touristy. Plus, I like to slip into the back alleys cause the back alleys show the real historical areas and read the stone writings with pictures depicting what happened there many years ago e.g. fights between Chinese and Western people over bread/some bakery long ago. The back alleys are a bit deserted with unrented shops and they're fun for taking pics reminscent of old kung fu movies where the streets are deserted and waiting for something to happen. Go dressed up in traditional wear or buy one in the shops at the middle/end of the street (they're cheaper than at the head of the street and better quality) to make it more fun. They don't have any to rent just to walk around. P.S. for anyone who likes kung fu movies, there's an authentic Wong Fei Hung Chinese medicine shop along the street.

Hi, We only stayed one night in Hangzhou, although I wish it had been longer, so I can only tell you about our hotel which was the Zhejiang Media Hotel (4 star). It was a very nice hotel but it did not have lake views although it was very close to the lake. As the lake is so beautiful I think it would be worth finding an hotel which had lake views & was close to Hefang Street.

Hefang Street question (3 Replies)
I'd like to walk Hefang Street and surrounding area while I'm in Hangzhou. Is there a certain place or address I should have a taxi drop me off to better explore Hefang Street? Is the Drum Tower a good place to start? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hangzhou trip (2 Replies)
Hi all. We are currently in Hangzhou. The Hyatt on West Lake is wonderful and the lake is beautiful. It is a more relaxed city than Beijing and the lake area is pretty. Relaxing walks along the lake. We are here as tourist but also to visit our daughter who is studying at the university so our agenda is a bit different than others. However, we did get to a fantastic massage place called in english Dragonfly. It is located on 176 Nanshan Road near the lake. So far we have spent several hours...More
