  • They are only two long streets where almost all shops, focus because as you walk away from it the environment is changing, atenuandose much lights and the bright shop windows and appearing locals trade more than an ancient China. In stores you can find exactly what it is offered everywhere, small differences perhaps, but no more than that. I think it is a visit that does not deserve two or three hours, unless you specifically go to buy something you are looking for. In particular, nothing is lost if these shops are not visited.

  • Go to so many ancient town streets this is the most beautiful, there are commercial ingredients, history is also very good to retain, it is important that the two do not conflict.
