One of the Hui people best preserved town

The old town is truly one of the best of Hui's cultural heritage. The buildings are so unique style and beautiful.

There is also a shopfront just facing the main river area, of a middle-aged couple selling wanton soup, dough biscuits. Watching them work was heartwarming. You could take a seat in their cosy shop, and watch them work, occasionally chat with them. Very nice couple, we went back the next day to say bye again :) In the old town... More

Several streets of authentic looking and well set up craft and local cuisine and tea shops in a friendly environment in this popular Chinese tourist town. Perfect place for souvenirs and tasting the traditional foods of the area like tofu tea and Chinese wine Not too pricey by western standards

We went to tunxi before departing to huangshan. It was okay for us. It was raining and just a pretty typical China old street that you can find in every city :)

We stayed in Tunxi at the Xinan Country Hotel this August 2016. From there we walked to the ancient street along the river for around 10-15 minute which by itself was really nice (not far from the adjacent park I've described in a separate review here). The street is really beautiful, it does look ancient and so do most of... More

The old street is nice, yet watch the tourists trap (expensive tea leaves...) you can find little local kitchens where you can have a light lunch.

The stores run from souvenirs to very expensive items. Every type of commerce available from jewelry, wooden items, carved stone to food and clothing...runs the gamete in a small accessible area. I had a very well appreciated beer at the end of the stroll. Great place to shop and not be hounded.

We strolled on the ancient street for about half hour due to the hot weather. On the way back to the hotel, my taxi driver told me that local people do not really shop and eat there. The street is more for tourists. I have visited many ancient streets in China, which is probably why I only rate this street... More
