Crowded. Dusty. Same chain stores have multiple branches on the same street so food varieties are limited. Food tasted no better than other places if not worse. Choose other places for better experience.

An interesting street we stumbled upon. Slightly touristy but some really lovely shops with not too bad prices. Nice gifts to take home and very safe, just be aware of the numerous bikes and scooters that appear from the huotong alleyways. Some nice cafes for...More
