Overcrowded by the swarm of boat hawkers and restaurant vendors, this has been overtakes by the Chinese mass tourism machine sadly. Stay further out if you plan on staying for a few nights.

Lots of restaurants, shops and bars. It seems like a lot of shops sell the exact same stuff as the next, and there really isn't anything unique you can buy. I'm not going to try to compare restaurants here with China's tier 1 large cities but all the food here are pretty subpar. It seems like all of the local... More

A fantastic way to see some amazing performances, street art, shops, and food. Just be careful of pick-pockets

West Street is a very lively area. There are many different kinds of shops selling a variety of products some of which you will probably not find anywhere else. The street starts to really wake up in the late morning and keeps going to the late hours of the evening. There are a variety of restaurants not only on West... More

Very popular street in Yangshuo. You can find lots of shops selling local products + there are lots of European restaurants - mainly German and Dutch, where you can have big drafted beer.

Here you can eat tasty European food sometimes even cooked by Europeans, and in the evening it's very beautiful. And there are a lot of hotels right at the street, it's convenient.

Typical tourist street but well worth a visit, very crowded especially at night and if you have young children then it would be easy to loose them in the crowd's. It is a mix of souvenir shops (highly inflated prices) bars, clubs and restaurants with a few street shows and vendors thrown in for good measure. Great atmosphere, fun and... More
