it's Three 'Lanes' seven 'alleys' actually.

It's a bit like an old Chinese 'Carnaby street' now - too touristy but still quaint

If you only have time in Fuzhou to see one place, this is it. To visit the pedestrianized network of restored old streets and alleys easily takes a few hours to half a day. It is quieter at night as many of the houses and galleries would have closed for the day but it is nice to see the lights and lanterns. There are a few very stylish tea rooms, art galleries and restaurants, as well as shops selling snacks and knick-knacks for the tourist market. There are a few old houses with antique furnishings open during the day with an entrance fee. There is even a 2-storey Starbucks which provides a vantage point for photography.

The San Fang Qi Xiang is wonderful! It is a bunch of restored (and rebuilt) old style buildings. The main street has shopping, and is hopping from mid-day to nighttime. The side alleys are better during the day, as the residences, gardens, and museums close up around 5/6pm.

The residences are amazing! We only went through a couple, and were facinated at each threshold and winding turn or courtyard.

The shopping is fun and ecclectic. If it is something you can find elsewhere, the prices are high, but we were able to bargain at a few places and found some unique things too.

The many traditional crafts are wonderful. A "must see" is the museum with active artisans in different areas. You can see them carve, cut, weave, laquer, and more. And a few things are for sale! Wonderful!

PS - There is a Starbucks, but before you sigh and wonder what is the world coming to, understand that it might win most charming Starbucks award! Now, the McDonald's ice cream window down the way could be somewhere else, although it had a long line every time we passed, so it probably won't be going anywhere.

This is a pleasant, reconstructed area which gets you away from the heavy traffic in the surrounding city. The museums/houses are worth going in for a look around. The shops are over-priced as in all tourist areas, but they're fun for a bit of window shopping. The traditional Chinese Starbucks made me smile.
