This is a absolutely tourist (alos chinese tourist) hot spot. The street looks like “old china” but with a lot of commercial shops. I liked the food stores there

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

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

Avoid as it’s uncomfortably crowded. Overpriced goods. Usual trinkets that are sold everywhere else. Popular with the locals though who come for weird foods that I otherwise avoid when traveling.

Hefang Street is a nice place to buy souvenirs. Go toward the middle area of the street, between Zhongshan Road and Wu Hill to find the shopping section.

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... More

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!

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
