I had been to Hefang Street a few years ago. It was always rather touristy but I believe it has actually gotten tacky. Many of the stores now play blaring music. Very aggrevating. Don't pay the asking price for ANYTHING. You should be able to bargain down to 40-50% of the initial price. Also be careful with taxis...they simply decide... More

This is one of the historical parts of Hangzhou, it is very apparent when you enter this small district with all the old buildings surrounding you. There are many shops selling everything from souvenirs to a McDonald's. There are plenty of old structures to photograph or admire and plenty of shopping to be done. A must visit when in Hangzhou.

While it's nice to see an "ancient" Chinese street, the shops have simply been taken over by commerce. Some more tasteful than others; still I would not choose to come here if you are on a tight timeline. The nicer boutiques like Shanghai Girls are hard to come by.

A very commercialized street lined with shops on both sides selling stuff from silk scarf to copper chopsticks to food.stalls. There is nothing ancient about this street. As for restaurants, there are plenty serving local cuisine, but quality not high. Go there if you have nothing to do at night

This street like most Lao Jie (老 街 or ancient Street) in China caters for tourists. If you are a 1st timer to China, you would fascinated esp. with the Xiao chi (小 吃)and way they make peanut candy with sledge hammers. A lot interesting and exotic snacks like satay centipedes, deep fried cicadas, snow crab claws. If you are... More

We took the mini car to browse through the streets, only RMB5 per pax.... You can alight wherever you like, just tell the driver to stop the car for you.

A nice 200-300 meters walk. It has lost most of the ancient look and too many store selling the same old things (Tea, Tourist things etc). Better street in other other cities, but still worth visiting if you are in Hangzhou.
