Interesting old town

This is more tourist attraction than authentic street but the athmosphere is nice and there are many good restaurants at the area.

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

Hefang Street is a nice place to go, in the evenings specially, to see the colorful traditional Chinese lanterns hanging across and the shops, coffee shops and restaurants full of light coming out inviting to get in. There are similar pedestrian streets in some other cities in China, but this one surely will fulfill the experience and won't be necessary... More

We had a great time wandering through the shops on Hefang Street. It seemed you could find anything from beautiful silks to souvenirs to art. The food stalls were fun, especially seeing the candies made. Lots of walking, so wear comfortable shoes.

Had a great time shopping for souvenirs and eating street food. Many small business to look at. Make sure to bargain at least twice with vendors before making a purchase. You can get really sweet deals. Don't book hotels on this street as they do not take in foreigners.

This was one of my favorite spots. The food was great and the area was crowded, but fun. Everyone seemed the be relaxed and having fun. We spent a lot of time just exploring.

the old street of China - you'll never get tired of it. It is quite photogenic a place especially during sunset. Go take a walk and see the vibrancy of this street. Just don't buy anything. I bought tea and realised the malls sold it cheaper!

It is an old street in the city. Hangzhou is a very old city and is a most important Chinese civilization starting area. There in this street, I have seen many old buildings and nice building. And with some nice local Xiaochi.

This street is definitely worth going to. There are many shops along this street and cafes and restaurants you can eat at. There is a shop that sells bronze that you must walk into. There is a museum downstairs of many works made in copper and bronze. I was in the museum for over an hour exploring it and taking... More

We didnt plan on going to this place initially but decided to drop by since we had finished the most important parts of the lake. It was drizzling throughout but we could still appreciate the architecture and the good mix of stores. Seems to be a good place to buy souvenirs and sample local food. I thought it was an... More
