Shopping while admiring the ancient architecture in one place! The shops sells souvenirs, calligraphy and art materials, local produce like tea and chrysanthemum flowers, snacks, etc. A nice walk through of the streets in cool weather.
Prior to heading to airport, we were free for two hours in the Ancient Street to do some shopping. Had a bowl of wanton soup in a hundred years old restaurant and bought an inks lab and three calligraphy brushes with some special papers. It’s...More
Great street, especially at night when we were there. Plenty of activity and a lot of local food. We tried the black sugar candy which were excellent especially if you like fudge as this was similar.
Soy milk manufacturing was interesting as were the artisan...More
The street was just over the river from our hotel. It was easy to find.
There were a lot of interesting little shops along the street.
We bought tea from a lovely shop where we were able to sample various teas first and learn about...More
We loved this place! It was authentic and the people watching was just as enjoyable as the food and shopping! Many calligraphy shops, tea shops and other little places to pick up anything one could ask for at pretty reasonable rates! I would definitely recommend...More
This part of Tunxi is well preserved and beautiful. I made the trip down early in the morning and the shops were still boarded up and there was no one around. The beauty of everything in Tunxi opening at 9am - it isn't hard to...More
Tunxi Old Street is a cut above most "old streets" in China in terms of style and quiet. We visited Wancuiou (on corner of Zhangma St), a wonderful collection of Chinese furniture, art and ornaments displayed in a large and beautiful private house. Entrance fee...More
This is a lovely street full of shops selling products that are specialised to the area. We brought paint brushes, paint stands, calligraphy paper, ink and ink wells, all extremely reasonable priced. There were lots of Tea shops and scrolls and paintings on sale plus...More

Yes, of course possible. That's a rather standard itinerary for this route. You might like to note that there're 3 cable cars going up Huangshan. Which one are you planning to take? I personally favour Taiping cable car for the view, but most tours won't have that on the menu. In addition, I prefer the West Sea Canyon which will not be covered by any tour groups. Neither do I enjoy "seeing" Huangshan at the pace of a flag-waving tour guide. I don't think you'll be visiting Tunxi old street...More
