I had to walk through here after my li river cruise. There are so many people! I got bounced around trying to find my way out of there. It is clean and there are a lot of souveniers and local products. I was going to go here while I was in Yanghshuo but after going through it once I decided... More

Sure it's touristy, and sure it's full of souvenir shops, but at least it's not a dump. The stores and the sidewalk displays are well-arranged and tidy, making for a pleasurable stroll. Of course they're selling a lot of junk, but some of the articles are actually unique and interesting. And of courses, the unique Yangshuo backdrop in the distance... More

My wife came here 12 years ago and was telling me the streets was a great place to go in night to find a bit of life after a long day of tranquility in the country side. What a disappointment!! The place is more crowdy than a night club, you literally get stuck and cant move anymore. Shops and Bars... More

An extremely bustling tourist trap, it's definitely worth a walk-a-bout for those last minute souvenirs, hustle and ambiance. A compact must-go for everything without having to go from one shop across the city to another. We are tea lovers and was able to purchase all our fav's in bulk in one place. From inexpensive trinkets to fine dining - it's... More

Find everything you want within West Street, popular amongst both locals and foreigners! But be careful of your belongings, it tends to get too crowded.

This street is PACKED with many locals selling similar items, lots of music bursting out of each store, a lot of light pollution and also very noisy. If you don't like crowds/hustle and bustle then this is not the place for you. Having said that, they have a variety of restaurants from Chinese to Western and BBQ. The atmosphere is... More

There are too many people and shops selling similar goods. However, the barbecue meat is nice in the area with some shops offer fresh mango juice!

We did an obligatory trip to West Street. It was 34 degrees, packed with people and full of standard tourist offerings. Enjoyed the tea shops.

Having read lots of opinions about the hotels and actuvities i Yangshuo, West Street seems to have received a lot of slack. I really loked the llcae. Yes, its busy and crazy but i think you have to take it for what it is and roll with it. There are loads of options for shopping, to eat and drink and... More
