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.

Lots of shops containing some souvenir junk, others with quality wares, side streets undergoing restoration, restaurants on periphery. An enjoyable place to stroll and/or shop for gifts.

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

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

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
