This place rocks in holiday season. People everywhere, loads of clubs, restaurants, street food.. It does get a little pricey but its expected being a touristy area.. There are many streets around west street selling the same wares and food. Overall a place u must visit at least once.

4 days in Yangshuo and disappointed that West Street and surrounds is loosing it's charm to nightclubs and 20+ activities especially at night. Several places we visited last time have become over commercialized and prices OTT. Even bargaining isn't so much fun. Tea shops everywhere.

I went there last night and I was was not expected the huge amount of people. Of course it was a Saturday, night. The streets are super crowded and loud, filled with gimmicks, that you see everywhere in China tourist traps. No good locals foods. No place to get a good drink either. I did however have a pretty good... More

Busy, touristy area. Several shops selling trinkets and souvenirs. Packed most nights. Great place for good western food and if you are looking for night life. Hotels range from budget backpacking ones to 3-star (US standard, 4 or 5 by Chinese).

Lots of neat tourists stuff to buy and if you are in dying need of some german food (bratwurst, german beer) this is the place to be. Lots of similar shops bit occasionally one pops out. Very nice ceramic store on the left somewhere.

West Street was so much more fun than I imagined! Besides the myriad of interesting shops, artisans and restaurants there is also a cooking school named Cloud Nine. Make a reservation to learn the art of making dumplings, Gong Pao Chicken and other treats in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Back out on the street, look for the shop with the... More

west street is famous for its restaurants, curio shops, bars and nightlife. The noise can go on until the early hours of the morning so I recommend you stay a bit further away if you like a good nights rest. If you're a party animal on a budget, this is perfect for you.

A nice place to walk and look around, but very aggressive salesmanship at certain points. Types of purchases include nick-nacks, clothes, yak bone carvings, fans, and general Chinese looking things for tourists. The 10 rmb mangos on a stick, carved into flowers were a highlight for me.

For people who like peace and being quiet alone, this busy street is noisy to us. not an attraction. Too many shops,and too many people at night.
