Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, Guangzhou

3.7
Take a walk down Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, a long-established commercial center with a good mix of international and locally produced items for sale. The distinctive Lingnan architecture that lines much of the pedestrianized street blends Chinese and Western influences, and that fusing of cultural styles reflects in the goods and foods on offer. Department stores with brand names galore, market halls with stalls selling locally made handicrafts and souvenirs, and a collection of international fast food chains and noodle bars make this a catch-all commercial center, with the lively crowd entertaining to watch, even if you're not looking to buy anything.

  • Shangxia Jiu Lu Pedestrian Street is located in the Liwan District of Xiguan, a prosperous traditional commercial district. It is the first commercial pedestrian street in the city. Walking into this ...  more »
  • When we talk to the local people that know they told us this street and then go to the River to take a stroll on the boats. The street is extremely popular, it is the focal point of the city, there are plenty of shops with good prices, from what I saw it was not a place of haggling, but rather with fixed prices, but you can try. Change to the sides of this pedestrian there are typical Chinese houses with traditional food. It is very long and takes time to explore it, also you can enjoy Cantonese food.

  • It is often suggested as a way to visit but is not that Nice. There is a great deal of confusion, low level stores, all yelling, objects of little value and low-level restaurants. So after 5 min you can already go on. Not the old Suburbs that one imagines, nor is it the super modern which is located in the business district near the Canton Tower. A disappointment

  • This place perfectly shared the experiences of using time machine. It just keeps the aesthetic in the past, and makes me want to live in there! …Although there are too many New Balance-like brands laying everywhere on the path.
  • Great lively place for an evening walk. Lots of people, lots of brands and shops, you can expect good stuff at cheap price there.
  • Like downtown. Traditional Chinese street. If you will come to Guangzhou, visit this street certanly
  • Good for shopping with cheap price
  • Very nice place to walk and shop in late evening.

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
