Tunxi Ancient Street, Huangshan

3.8
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Huangshan
Head down Tunxi Ancient Street to admire the architecture, shops, and eats of a well-preserved old district. The shophouses that line the way display an Anhui style of architecture, with two or three brick and wood floors, and a depth allowing for a storefront, residential quarters, and a storeroom or workshop in the back. Stop off at a teahouse just off the main strip to sample some traditional teas and watch the mass of people go by in search of a souvenir. While here, consider paying a visit to the old ink factory, where they still make calligraphy products in traditional ways, purchasable from the gift shop.

    A jewel is tunxi old street, each coming to Huangshan tourist to come here, take a look at the more than 1000 meters, the street originated hundreds of years ago. Street backed by the anjiang, here is the navigation terminals, numbers of cargo ships, vendors must go through here, so gradually formed a prosperous trade in street.
