Old Street is one of the better shopping experiences I've had within China. Huge line of shops and stalls selling a whole range of your tourist goods at very reasonable prices. Not too many people compared to markets in other big cities, and plenty of options for eating, Chinese or Western. Also very beautiful at night.

We stayed at Hui Boutique which is just a 10m walk from Tunxi Old Street. The Old Street is packed with small shops which sell a lot of local specialities. The local baked produce can be delicious and samples are given freely so do try them. Even commonly items are way cheaper than in the bigger cities such as Beijing... More

Shopping area.very busy with locals and tourists alike. Visited with the Sinorama Tour Group. You can wander short way from here and see the real China. Washing hanging on trees. Loads of motorcycles in the street

We came during off peak season so the street was very quiet. Streets are clean and people are friendly here. Had dinner at a western cafe.

Visited here while on a trip to the mountain, it's an old street but with new shops everywhere. Does not have an old Chinese feeling. Good to go if you have a spare hour or 2 & need some food.

Totally commercial tourist shopping area. Nice old style architecture of the buildings. Nice restaurants, coffee/tea shops. But 100% for tourist shopping. All shops on 1st floor of every building.

It's totally commercialised, unlike the many other villages you can visit. Even Hongcun and Xidi, both victims of the UNESCO curse are more authentic than Tunxi. However, if you are staying the night in Tunxi it is still worth the while to walk through the old street and do some shopping.

A wonderful place to have a break after the tiring trip to the mountain. An old street with dozens of shops, selling variety things from simple default Chinese souvenirs to traditional local mountain tea and Hui style food.

The Tunxi district of Huangshan is my personal favourite spot of Huangshan City. Many different coffee shops, along with an amazing assortment of street food mixed with a stunning atmosphere!
