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

I was able to purchase really nice gifts for family and friends, i also got my name written in Chines on a scroll. Very vibrant, traditional Chinese setup. Local food treats and frozen goodies available for the hot long walk! Be sure to shop around...prices are better with the little shops rather than the big stores.

The main shopping street in Hangzhou. Don't forget to wander of in the small side streets, where you will meet traditional food stands and chinese experiences.

A view of the ''Old China'' kept alive and vibrant for the crowds of tourists, which are mainly from the PRC itself, and from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan, as also non-resident Chinese from other places. A must-see if you go to Hangzhou.

Hefang represents chinese culture and foods. The street is beautifully decorated with shops at both sides for souvenirs, handicrafts, tea, silk, cosmetics and others. At far end of the street are many stalls for street foods like crabs, squids, stinky tofu, BBQ, liangmian(凉面), pancakes, and many others !!

Its a nice place to hang around especially in the late afternoon. I was there in June 2014 and enjoyed walking the streets. Although there was a little rain, I liked the place. There is also a big laughing Buddha in the middle of the street where you can take photos. You can buy souvenirs at a very cheap price... More
