Interesting place.

Good for a short stop over if you have a late evening flight. About 13 minutes drive from airport. There are shops and KFC in the town.

I spend an evening walking this ancient street. Many buildings are authentically old. There are many tea shops and calligraphy shops. I would recommend going for a few hours to walk and eat. If I could have joined an english walking tour it would have been extremely fascinating however only stumble across this area by accident.

Absolutely lovely. We loved to walk between the old buildings. We enjoyed the contrasts between the old and the newest part of the city as well. We had a great time there.

Long street with a lot of foods and snacks options. Make sure to dine in the "Mei shi ren jia" on the begining of the street, as you will experience a different way of food ordering. The ancient street also makes me feel like we are in the old kung-fu chinese movie. It's worth visiting when you're in town before/... More

It's quaint, it's busy, it's interesting. It's fun to walk along this car-free street with it's myriad souvenir, tea, clothes (especially cheong-sams) and other shops. And it's just great to stay in a hotel (hostel, actually) here and have all these at your doorstep.

Nice street for a walk. Although, not the place to buy packaged food or tea, if you want the real deal. I talked to a local, telling me that the street is basically a tourist street. There were many restaurants and I had dinner at LaoJie DiYiLou, after recommendations from the local. The food was good.

The Old street of Tunxi is a must visit for tourist visiting Huangshan mountain. You can either stay for one night, or stop-by and explore the old street (lao jie) where many shops along the stretch of old street selling handcrafts, souvenirs, foods and local snacks. Popular snack such as shao-bing (biscuit with pork+preserve vegetable inside), sesame grind into flour... More

Really fun browsing/window shopping place with plenty of photo opportunities for those so inclined... Getting some snacks to walk along with helps makes the experience all the more "fulfilling"
