One can find many old established Cantonese restaurants here. Nice pedestrian walking street (no vehicles allowed) and many shops. Prices are reasonable. Plenty of good food around and nearby. Wish I had more time to try more food.

We visited the Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, another well-known commercial street in Guangzhou during this Chinese Spring Festival. Although it was during the Chinese Spring Festival holiday, there were not so many people. Walking along the street, we experienced the unique Lingnan architectural style, Xiguan folk customs, commercial and cultural ambience. It is a great place to go shopping with very... More

Visited twice during our recent China Tour. Cheaper shopping here compare to Beijing Road Shopping Street. Plenty to shop and many eateries in the vicinity. Many traditional bakeries for tourists to bring home cookies and biscuits. Near Shamian Island so can time the two visits together.

I quite enjoyed this despite being hungry and tired when I got to it. A bewildering blur of noise light and errant cyclists that eventually woke our toddler up.

Most of the shops only accept cash and union pay. There are eateries along this stretch of the road and lots of banks to change money. The spectacles shop located above the sports shop 361 offers great value for money and speedy service which makes specs in an hour or so.

We went there on our last day in Guangzhou. Since it was raining , we decided to give it a try even though we have already done some shopping in Beijing Road. Here too, there is a lot of shopping opportunity and it was not very busy in the morning. One cannot come to Guangzhou and leave without visiting one... More

I worked in Guangzhou in October and November 2016. I put my free time to good use. Eventually I became familiar with the Guangzhou subway so most tourist sights in Guangzhou can be reached by subway. Beware of green taxis in Guangzhou which can be dishonest. Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street is an overwhelming place. It is very crowded. There are many... More
