Busy place-tourist trap

This was an exciting place to shop. There are plenty of "pierronas" in your face constantly. You will learn how to say "No. Thank you." in Chinese very soon.

West street is... alright. The thing is it isn't indicative of local culture at all. There are super noisy clubs and knickknack shops with a few artist's shops worth visiting. That said, a single pass is enough to get a sense of it. Other than that it's the same trinkets you can buy anywhere in China and bars with full... More

West st is the main st in Yangzhou and runs from the dock on Li river the city centre.It starts at the dock with the usual street vendors but as you move into the city it becomes more upmarket.KFC is found here and nearby is anew shopping centre.Over all nothing special.

They come from all over, all at once it seems! This street is crazy busy and has tourist tat aplenty alongside go-go bars and street food. Fun for a while but unrelenting in volume and lack of space.

After the river cruise and sightseeing from Zhujiang Pier to Yangshuo County, West Street is an excellent place to go shopping and eating. Countless number of places to eat ranging from McDonalds to storefront Chinese.

This street is just lovely! Plenty of restaurants with western food and local food, bars, live music. Probably the best place in Yangshuo to dine.

Really great street. Good restaurants, bars and accomodation. Food and merchandise stalls as well as large stores. Early evening okay to take kids. Off the main Street are lively side streets with some talented live performers in the bars.

Don't come here unless all you want to do is eat and shop. Very commercialized. Time can be best spent going somewhere else.

This street on a Friday night reminded me of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. A feast for the senses -- sometimes an assault. There were people everywhere, vendors hawking, restaurants and dancing, shopping, you name it. A group I was with found a quieter restaurant off a nearby street, which offered us views of the calvacade of passers-by. As a... More
