  • Crowded and noisy is my impression of this place. Like the old street view but I didm't get to see good porcelains.  more »
  • Due to a lot of restaurants but most of each corner, it is a duplicate. More people walking is the only way to cool air.

  • 全国的商业化的古镇都差不多,卖的东西差不多,游客表情差不多,不靠谱的出租车司机差不多……古镇门口有家吃饭的地方,带变脸表演的,很不错,价格不贵还能看表演,而且一进去就让我坐第一排,受宠若惊……  more »

  • Very easy to get to on the subway, just a short walk from the station. We went on Monday morning. It was crowded to the point that walking and not bumping into people was a chore. I can't imagine how horribly crowded this place would be on a weekend. Basically, the attraction is a few streets with old looking buildings selling tacky crap. People clap these fake hands, that cause an unbearable racket, to get shoppers attentions. That, along with all the other noise, made this a ghastly adventure. The shear phoniness and tackiness interest wears off quickly, and all that's left is the worst aspects of Chinese tourism. Why two stars? First I had to use a toilet. We walk off the main Street, and immediately it's a pleasant place, without the crowds or the tackiness. We pay 1¥ to use a ladies toilet, and it was all very pleasant. Second, we went to a temple on a hill near the end of the street ( sign posted), that was quiet and pleasant.
  • This is an amazing place. Love the layout of the entire village.
  • Good place with traditional environment
  • Nice place for buying souvenirs and postcards. A little bit expensive.
  • It's a nice place, but just too many people on holidays.
