Vibrant. Colourful. Typical Chinese pedestrian shopping street but set in a ancient town setting. Street is wide and easy to navigate

A very touristy old section of Hangzhou. Great old buildings and lots of entertainment on display. Can get very crowded and everyone is selling something. Worth checking out.

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

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... More
