This place is better know as San Fang Qi Xiang, 三坊七巷 which means Three Lanes and Seven Alleys. This place is tastefully developed into a commercial street. If you get too much of a culture shock, there is also a MacDonald's. Other than the shops, some of the house has great historical value. Many of the houses are opened as... More

Exactly what you expect from an alley. Full of people and vendors, lots of tastes things and little knick knacks to buy. Overall it was a lot of fun. Be careful of the some of the restaurants though because it is easy to get ripped off.
