We decided to go to West Street for dinner around 6 pm. When we got there (about 10 minutes walk from the Green Lotus hotel), there were many visitors / tourists already shopping /eating / walking around. The street is full of shops, food stalls, restaurants, bars, street vendors, side streets, etc. After walking around the whole area, including the... More

In general, English is not widely spoken in the Guilin/Yangshoo area. However, West Street is the exception as it was originally settled by "West"erners back in the 70s/80s. The local person there knows a little English and we could easily get western food which we were craving for. In addition, you can do quite a bit of shopping and get... More

I love markets and this one didn't disappoint. It was a pedastrian market with a bit of everything for sale . The knockoffs were made pretty cheap for the most part. Thye are still putting the labels on the designer knockoffs here. We didn't see that in some other markets . Bargaining is expected and necessary.

Great shopping and restaurants !!! By night, the area transforms into a vivacious hot spot replete with busy night clubs, relaxed beer gardens and a seemingly endless array of restaurants serving the local food

We really enjoyed walking about town. Seeing the local life styles. Food was wonderful. Try the Beer Fish a local specialty. Or how about crawfish? We sat and enjoyed the wonderful flavor the little tiny(3 table) restaurant offered. No one speaks English but everyone does it with a smile. Pointing and sign language goes a long way. Oh and there... More

If you need a quick fix of dinner, there's plenty of food options at West Street. Beer fish resutaurants, fast food (KFC, Burger King, MacDonald's), HK Discos, Korean Bling bling and lots. Good night vibe for supper and just walking around after watching the Liu San Jie show, which is less than 5mins drive away.

There is old west street with lively shops to walk about. And there is a newly developed street building close to the old street. Thus giving a mix of old and new. Good for dinner, drinks and walk about shopping.

If you want to pick up some cool souvenirs, this is the place to go, but if you want an authentic China experience and/or great food, look elsewhere.

Heavy rain when we were there so I suggest bring an umbrella or poncho along as there were no sheltered walking area. Found a lot of cheap souvenir to bring back for friends and family going lowest at 10yuan. Bought small chinese handbags at 10 Yuan. Cheap! Even bought a jacket suited for its winter of around 14 degrees celsius... More
