Very well appointed for city tourism. You will feel like walking in the past with lots of historical old building although they are turned it into something else now. You still can see some are kept like it was and well preserved.

I see from comments below that people visiting during the day found the alley too crowded and hectic. We went on a Sunday evening (about 9pm), and we didn't have that problem at all. There were still enough people in the alley to give it...More

I went on a Saturday and it was so crowed and chaotic that I wasnt able to enjoy it. A bit too commercial for me. Recommend Jinlin street instead.

I recommend to take subway when you want to leave the area. Taking Didi to go there is ok but booking is Didi when you leave requires you to give exact landmarks to meet your driver as there are many entrances for this area.

Good question! We were there in the evening, until around 10, and things were still busy. But I'm guessing by midnight things are winding down. If you get there around 10, based on our experience, you'll still find lots of... More
