Very touristy, but historic street in downtown Tunxi. At least the street is lined up with antiquities shops, rather than places selling cheap trinkets.

The local salespeople were very nice and not insisting. We found some local goods, got some of them to try out and enjoyed not being pushed to buy. Even made few good deals without big negotiation. Very relaxed if you have an afternoon in Tunxi.

It is nice to take a relaxing stroll through Tunxi Old Street, but only if you have time to spare. It does not measure up to other - comparable - places in China. Nevertheless it is a nice collection of old (and not so old) buildings, quaint shops and restaurants, but a very touristy place.

The ancient street is really a collection of streets embedded within a city which at 1.5 million inhabitants is small by Chinese standards but which is modernising rapidly. The shops follow a traditional 2 level layout which was once very common in Chinese cities and feature a wealth of variety in their offerings. Food ,wood and stone carving, arts and... More

This is the most famous shopping district in Huangshan City. Many well-kept shops selling local goods such as tea, calligraphy accessories, etc. Many small restaurants and tea/coffee shops. Our tour guide led us to a small restaurant specializing in wonton and pot-stickers, and the food was excellent. We can'talk believe how inexpensive it was: 15 pot-stickers for a little more...

This will give you an insight of Chinese history of village living with ancient buildings and many stories to hear. There are now many shops opened in those buildings and street foods for you to try. Especially the hairy tofu!! Then the walk up the hill will give you a paramount view of the village and vegetables farm which is... More

We arrived to Huangshan for exactly 24 hours to visit the yellow mountain and this ancient market was not in our program. On our way back to the airport we had 2 hours to spare and our lovely guide suggest that we go to visit there. It was a nice surprise and great experience. Although people wrote here that it...

It's scenic and charming- but it is a bit touristy. There are a lot of souvenir shops. Worth a stroll though.
