I am a native of Wuhan, and I often take some foreign guests to visit Wuhan. For me, Jiqing Street is: Daytime strolls around Hanzheng street , evening travels the Jiqing street " the Wuhan people usually has this to say. You can find Si Jimei, Lao Tongcheng and other famous time-honored food brands here, as well as some folk craftsmen's stalls. When the evening lights are lit, the Jiqing street is ablaze with lights , a confused noise of voices , delicious food delicious dishes of all kinds have all that is necessary, every utensil lingering charm Chinese taste is performed among the people.

We wandered Jiquing Street along with other streets in the area apparently known as the HanKou Historical And Cultural Region. There were a lot of street vendors and lots of cheap touristy things to purchase if you were interested. There were also several excellent bakeries in the area. Because it was a hot day, one of the more popular places was a local variety store that had cold beer near where there were some tables to sit outside on and relax. Worth wandering around for an hour or so.

This is a fun street to walk to , and walk around if you are looking for a nice night walk. I walk from the Hyatt in Wuhan, and it is safe and interesting.

The usual bunch of shops restaurants and buskers. This isn't the nicest area to spend time in, I prefer Jianghan Street which is in the same area just a short walk away.

This is an interesting street that has a lot of street performers busking from table to table, shop to shop.

They consist of individuals or a small group singing, playing guitars or the Erhu and other musical instruments.
There was even one guy who is usually kinkily dressed up playing the accordion.

Genres ranges from Chinese classics to the latest pop songs.
You can get them to perform just beside where you are sitting for a small fees.

There used to be a lot of these performers before the street was revamped but numbers have dwindled in recent years.

The best times to be here are when the weather is cooler but not in the hot summer.

You will find a few restaurants, beverage kiosks, and mostly empty buildings. Maybe in the evening hours, on a pleasant evening, strolling this area will appeal, but otherwise, it's just another street to walk down.

Jiqing Jie is famous locally, despite the fact that most of your local friends have probably never been there. The attraction is the dapaidang style dining which is supposedly complimented by the presence of predatory beggars masquerading as busking musicians.

Upon arrival you may choose one of the many restaurants lining the street. Hopefully the weather is nice so you can sit outside, which is generally the point of dapaidang, but which in this case magnifies the horror of Jiqing Jie.

The food we had was passable local fare, but incredibly overpriced by about 3 times what I would expect to pay anywhere else. That is to say anywhere else that is not a tourist trap. Food in Wuhan is great, and cheap, just not here.

The restaurants use typical local tricks to magnify your bill at the end of the night. You may be familiar with these tricks, but you will not avoid them. We watched table after table being overcharged for their dishes. This is common practice at most Chinese tourist destinations and Chinese are just as susceptible as foreign tourists.

The worst part of Jiqing Jie are the 'musicians'. It is literally impossible to hold a conversation due to the constant stream of 'performers' grabbing your sleeves, molesting you and yelling at you. Some of them will curse your mother once you finally convince them to leave. If you do request a song or two, which you may be tempted to do by some of the more aggressive male performers, expect to be cheated again as one song somehow becomes three. Again, locals and foreigners alike will fall for this guise. Don't bother requesting songs from actual musicians, such as the talented elderly violinist we saw at another table, because inevitably a 30-something male with a broken guitar or busted flute will join in an ruin the performance and demand money for the privilege.

A great example of the worst kind of Chinese tourist trap that can be found in all major travel destinations in the Middle Kingdom. Avoid avoid avoid.
