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
Hefang street is a traditional street in Hangzhou, connected with the Souther Song pedestrial street. It's a bit touristy and a bit kitch-y, but still very nice to visit and a good place to get some souvenirs. Traditional food and international chains are both largely...More
Busy, vibrant and colorful old town area with olden day's architecture buildings. Along the streets, there are the pharmacies of yester-years with the brown boxes arranged in rows alike lego blocks; the old and the new blend in well with a variety of shops that...More
Similar to a street in "Old Shanghai"; tourist-oriented, interesting shops, lots of activity. We had a very good in one of the nicer restaurants. I didn't notice anything special in the shops, but it's worth a visit if you are in Hangzhou.
Touristy for sure. However some of the architecture remains with some preservation works done . It’s pleasant walk getting to the ambience of things.
Lots of things to see - tea houses, food , medicine , silk , souvenirs etc . As this is a...More
i love this street at night time when its not so busy. walking around the small alley at the inside makes you feel like you are not in a Alibaba dominated city until you have to buy something. be very careful what you buy on...More
Yes it is touristy BUT it is delightfully so. Teas, local foods, die cut cards and foods fill the shops. We found the shop keepers pleasant and helpful. We went to Hefang Street on a national holiday, so many of the tourists were Chinese national...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.
