A walking street lined with stalls on both sides selling food, chinese tea, local stuffs, fake silk, medicine shop, etc etc .I will agree with many other reviews that this street is worth just visiting but not the shopping. It is a good starting point...More

This street remind me of the ancient street in dramas, protected architecture with nice delicacies selling in stores. Nice clean place to chill in, can snap pretty good pics here.

A fun street to visit, not the cheapest place to buy souvenirs but better than the airport and faster than hunting for the small districts.

Went there for a walk around West Lake Scenic Area with my mom. Prices were affordable, most of the vendors were fair and impartial with both Chinese and foreigner customers, what’s more impressive is they kept the architecture from the Song Dynasty in perfect conditions,...More

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.

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
