This place is near the Yu Gardens, so it's super touristy. You can find better bargains elsewhere in the city, but this is a fun place to look around. Be careful of your purses and wallets.

Good place to find some cheap souvenirs. Same stuff as in the Yu Gardens but a bit cheaper. Not a long street. We walked through it from the Yu Gardens to get to The Bund.

It's a cool stop for cheap souvenirs. You can barter a little as well. Lot's of snack options to try as well.
