Interesting place to go through

it may remember the old china, but you may just go though the streets, the shops are not up to date.

The buildings are historic and there are lots of little shops and restaurants. we enjoyed lamb Kabob ,shrimps& Oysters in a food court with many stalls. BYO if you want wine but be discrete. Put it in a plastic bottle and take cups from hotel. had a great lunch for less than 100RMB.

Should visit. Foods sold here are oily,which is their style of cooking. Bargaining is permitted when shopping.When taking a taxi, be sure the meter is turned on.

A nice street to walk along and absorb some of Haikou's past. It's nice that it is pedestrianized so you don't often have to worry about cars while you are busy staring upwards! A lot of it was being renovated at the time we went. A good photo opportunity and some possible tourist souvenirs but after a walk down it... More

It's a nice place to take a walk and shop for snacks and souvenirs to take home, maybe to take a few pictures... but that's it. After a few hundred meters you'll start to realize everything looks the same. There are some really nice restaurants and teahouses in the area though, but the prices are higher then elsewhere in Haikou.... More

Can stop by there but don't expect too much. A lot of simple stores mostly for clothes. Not much to play eat or drink. Buildings seem to be French colonial related.

A nice experience visiting this pedestrian-only street, that is filled with statues / sculptures, old buildings and restaurants. Definite worth visit.

It's easy to mix up two great Haikou locations: Qilou Old Street 骑楼老街 and Qilou Snack Street 骑楼小吃街. Qilou Old Street is a section of restored streets with Qilou buildings where you can find coffee shops, Hainan souvenirs, small museums, and dessert shops mixed in with local life. Bring your good camera, this is a great place for a photo... More

I can see that this is probably a great place to come when you are hungry. It was interesting to see some of the unusual food being sold like squid on skewers. But unfortunately we weren't hungry and it was hot and humid so not as appealing. I wish I had brought her at night and that she had been... More
