Bad food and overcrowded, just good for a short visit to buy some souvenirs. We did not like it at all.

Lots of activity, nice walking through streets, many restaurants. A bit too touristy for my own liking. If I were between the ages of 18-34 I probably would have loved it.

West Street was the only time we saw crowds in Yangshuo, which is rare for traveling in China where we are used to seeing crowds! It's very touristy with lots of bars, restaurants and shops. If you visit expecting this (which we did), it will make it more enjoyable. We found a decent restaurant (unfortunately, can't remember the name) with... More

West street is... alright. The thing is it isn't indicative of local culture at all. There are super noisy clubs and knickknack shops with a few artist's shops worth visiting. That said, a single pass is enough to get a sense of it. Other than that it's the same trinkets you can buy anywhere in China and bars with full... More

West st is the main st in Yangzhou and runs from the dock on Li river the city centre.It starts at the dock with the usual street vendors but as you move into the city it becomes more upmarket.KFC is found here and nearby is anew shopping centre.Over all nothing special.

This was an exciting place to shop. There are plenty of "pierronas" in your face constantly. You will learn how to say "No. Thank you." in Chinese very soon.

They come from all over, all at once it seems! This street is crazy busy and has tourist tat aplenty alongside go-go bars and street food. Fun for a while but unrelenting in volume and lack of space.

After the river cruise and sightseeing from Zhujiang Pier to Yangshuo County, West Street is an excellent place to go shopping and eating. Countless number of places to eat ranging from McDonalds to storefront Chinese.
