Nice shopping area

It's nothing super special but the small shops are nice and the sellers aren't noisy. Do check it out if you're in the area.

Crowd after crowd, I finally found a spot that was quiet, beautiful and serene. This was the place. I was lucky, my Chineses sister in law highly recommended a guide, and indeed it was worth it. I think I would be still wandering this fung shuei maze without the guide. The loutus ponds were some of the most serene and... More

It is a nice old town, but too many people, mostly large group of Chinese tourist (which is quite OK, as it is in China). But each group has its loud speaker guide that made lots of noise.

We stayed at a hotel there during July 2014, great place to wander around, eat good food, take pictures of the buildings and vendors. we really loved sitting in restaurants and watching people and having a chinese beer. The building of old street are even nicer at night with all the red lights on

Went there for an evening with my husband. The street would be similar to other ancient streets where the buildings are preserved but still a great site to visit when in Anhui. I bought some preserved vegetables in a jar, great for a side dish (similar to Philippines' atsara). I'm just not sure what vegetable that was. The seller was... More

I went in May, quiet time, and at night it was still busyish. Shops carry your average touristy gifts and bits and pieces. Restaurants are good, some English/Chinese menus along the strip and everything is relatively cheap.
