West Street, Yangshuo County

With the history of more than 1,400 years, West Street remains one of the city's oldest streets. The site became popular for blending eastern and western cultures together and now it holds the title of China's foreign language center. With a length of 517 m (1,696 ft), the marble-paved street meanders in a letter "S" along its length and supports more than 20 bilingual shops, restaurants, and cafes. Take a stroll or rent a bicycle to explore the multicultural setting, where mornings have a peaceful and soothing vibe. Nighttime turns the place into a modern and bustling hub. A visit to West Street represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yangshuo County trip planner to plot your vacation.
