Seems that it is a must-go place for tourists. Old street with old architectures. It was very crowded during our visit. There were various shops selling silks, souvenirs and some interesting stuffs. The street food was expensive and taste not so good. Basically it is still a good visit if you are a first time in Hangzhou.

This was part of our itinerary. Area has lots of food booths, clothing and souvenir booths. Some real interesting eats such as crab on a stick and sweets made by young men pounding it. None of which I tasted. Area has free toilets. There are lots of locals strolling and enjoying the area. Buildings are old and after dark look... More

The Hefang Street is actually a market with selling stands in its middle and stores and eateries on both sides. Some of them are simply beautiful or really ancient like this 300 year old pharmacy. You can have there complimentary tea and be examined by a Chinese physician who will give you a prescription you'll buy right there. As I... More

Hotel: Hai Hua 4* I checked in at 10:30 and after a short time waiting, the room was cleaned. The staff was extremely friendly. The room was big and comfortable. Everything matches a 4 Star Hotel. (Minibar, Amenities, independent power supply... ) But the Internet in my Room was slow, so I didn't have access to many locations, like Facebook.... More

Recommended by our Hotel, interesting in an olde world kind of way. Lots of older original buildings with some interesting shops. Many sell food and great to see it being made in front of you, some make it quite a spectical and entertaining. Lots of places to stop and eat etc. Worth a trip. Nice for a few hours.

First time visiting Hang Zhou and wanted to look around for a couple of hours. The concierge recommended to walk along the street, which is quite a good recommendation. Could take a look and get some local tea (which is very good) and other street foods. Basically a good visit if you are a first time tourist to Hang Zhou

There are similar streets like this in many Chinese cities, like Bejing, Shanghai, Yangshou. However these buildings are in many cases from Ming Dynasty. The street has character that wasn't created in the last 20 years. Some of the shops are hokey with guys pounding candy with big wooden mallets. As a tourist trap generally if you are a westerner...

This street is similar to many streets in Chinese cities such as Beijing, Guangzhou and Yangshuo. I have visited similar streets in many Chinese cities and found this street to be quite uninteresting in comparison. There weren't too many snacks on offer and the food we did try didn't taste good. However, the laughing Buddha statue was very cool and... More

Fill your bags with sovereigns from this place. Amazing and cute stuff. Don't miss out the art gallery in the street. you would love it. Dont be too late to get into this place. the footpath stores closes by 9 pm and will miss some amazing stuff.
