I felt that we were taken to this area to kill time while waiting to board our ship for a cruise down the Yangtze River, so maybe I did not give it enough of a look. But every town we had visited had these type areas and we had gotten tired of being hounded to purchase stuff. If you like... More

Very crowdy alot of Tourists mostly from asia. Small streets and old small houses, its nice to walk around there, but theres nothing special to do and see. It feels like going back 100 years when you enter the Town. They sell almost same things in every shop, but it is Worth the trip there,

Long way to go there (take taxi) and really not much to see. There are of cource nice old houses and small streets. Full of tourists everyway most of them from Asia. Anyway, it is good place for shopping and if you like to have a cup of tea during your shopping you will find many nice tea houses around.

As the place is lined with many street food vendors, it could get quite dirty. Eat the food at your own risk! Interesting place with many historical buildings and souvenirs shops.

The first 5 minutes after entering you still feel like WOW but after keeping on walking, the stalls are the same, the crowd gets thicker and you feel like you've seen it. We started by turning right at the T-crossing. That road led towards the river. We turned another left just before the road ended in the river and came... More

this street gives you one of the first impressions that you have landed in China. Due to its rapid growth the country is quite westernised with its high rise buildings and amazing roads. The people dont speak english, but they try to help you as much as possible. Great food everywhere, I had the freshest made noodles in my whole... More

This is a great place for snacks and people watching. I could have spent all day here. Walk down to the riverbed to see the kids games and have a beer by the river.

Crowded narrow streets, pockets of eateries and tea houses, open air food stalls serving delicious calamari and beef coated in chilli and cumin, cooked over open coals. This place is full of local families and friends enjoying the history of this impressive old town, drinking tea, playing cards and some other game with look a like domino pieces. While not... More

You have to see this place to get a feel of ancient chinese culture, but be aware of the crowd. Thus suggest to avoid weekends and public holidays.
