  • Old stylized street with souvenir shops and bars. A great and intense experience of how the Chinese trade and peddle thei wares. A must-see if you're around visiting the Yuyuan Garden.
  • 人潮超多,建築保存相當完整,值得逛蠻久的 Full of people during day time. The building is well maintained. It's worthy to stay there for 2 hours at least.
  • A complex of shops which sell various kinds of merchandise and food. The buildings' design are traditional, thus you'll feel like going back in time.
  • Really crowded. Various souvenir shops and restaurants (poor quality).
  • A busy, touristy marketplace in among beautiful buildings. Too crowded to be enjoyable.
