“Nice location to spend a few hours”
Review of Nanhou Street

Nanhou Street
Reviewed 26 November 2016 via mobile

It is the so called "old city" of Fuzhou, but definitely not original. A lot of shops and restaurants in this area. Shops are ranging from trumpery shops till shops were you can buy really nice stuff. Several museums are located up here, some of them you can visit for free. The so called Opium museum has a nice garden inside.

Nanhou Street starts from the Yang Bridge and ends at Jipi Road. it is part of the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys and is also one of the ten historical and cultural streets of Fuzhou. A pedestrian street, there are shops selling souvenirs, tea , restaurants selling local Yanpi and fishball specialty as well as Starbucks and McDonalds. This street is also the largest lantern market in Fuzhou. We were there during the dragon boat festival and we were delighted to see the many procession celebrating the festival here. We walked an alley where the famous scholars used to live. A busy but interesting street worth a visit.

This place is better know as San Fang Qi Xiang, 三坊七巷 which means Three Lanes and Seven Alleys. This place is tastefully developed into a commercial street. If you get too much of a culture shock, there is also a MacDonald's. Other than the shops, some of the house has great historical value. Many of the houses are opened as free art galleries so you can enter for a good look. If you head to the end of the street, you can go to Lin Zexu's house for a visit.

Took a metered taxi from my hotel.
Tell the drive to drop you at the main gate of Nanhou street. (Tell the hotel staff to tell the driver if you cannot speak Chinese). 南后街
All attractions in downtown Fuzhou can be reached by metered taxi avoid paying those expensive local day tours.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a walking street closed to traffic and it is part of the famous "Three Lanes Seven Alleys" Sanfangqixiang of Fuzhou.
Many local food eateries and shopping. Try the Fuzhou fishball and peanut soup. Avoid the rest.
You can walk the narrow alleys that used to be the old residences of some famous people during the Tang or Ming dynasty. Entrance fees of some places required.
If you do not wanna pay any fees just like me you can just take the pictures of the wooden and bricks stones houses built during the era.
Walk all the way until the end of the street. Cross the road you will be a manmade old waterway with cafes and restaurants on both side. A nice place to relax in the cool weather.
A favourite hangout for the locals too. Many people.
-----------------------------------------
A lot of the buildings are being renovated and modernized . Starbucks , Macdonalds and even a modern upscale movie cinema is located there with 10 movie screens! 100RMB for a movie ticket.
