Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, Guangzhou

3.6
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.

    A fun place to shop with plenty of bargains to be found. The area is buzzing at night with a lot of people. Remember to barter. Plenty of restaurants above the shops. Definitely worth a visit.  more »

    Eat well, southern tale of two covers milk, silver rolls, Lian-Xiang building, such as Guangzhou restaurant here, very good, but eating is very boring. Building old Guangzhou flavor, but stores what is fringe style, people are many and complex, and bad experience.

    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.

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.
