He Fang Street is located at walking distance from the Pagoda near Westlake. The landmark is the chinese historical buidling ( unsure what;s the name)up the hill nearby. It is a tourist attraction site and of course everything is marked up. The shops are very commercialized though it retains it's historical structure. Ate at the food court which housed many... More

I was looking forward to seeing the old buildings on this street , and there were some really pretty classic looking structures. But overall it was average. A lot of shops selling junk although some nicer ones. Worth a quick stop if you have time

The buildings beautifully restored, a lot of fun stores, some cool looking restaurants including a great tea house not far from the McDonalds (don't remember the name) - a modern slightly Japanese looking place with great tea and good food...

For those who like street food this is a real heaven. You can find whatever you want from chicken legs to black ducks and a variety of fish, squids, crabs and prawns that may be cooked, grilled or deep fried in front of you. You can learn a lot about how real Chinese food is presented and eaten. A nice... More

The shops on this street offer a wide variety of goods. I enjoyed the interaction between sellers and buyers. Just remember that whatever the price is they can always be talked down to a price you feel comfortable with.

Do not miss the PHARMACY FAMED FOR CHINESE MEDICINE. (It is just off Hefang St and called Huqingyutang) Fantastic - both the stunning interior and ingredients like giant mushrooms, etc0) Can also recommend catching the little tram-like vehicle that rumbles around the backstreets of Hefang. Oh, and lower down the street, in the middle, there is a statue of a... More

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.
