Zhongshan Road really is the beating heart of Siming District; take a walk down a bustling, car free road and enjoy all the locals have to offer. Hundreds of cafes, restaurants and stalls line the street, mixed with shops selling everything from high-end clothing brands to cheap toys and food. It is definitely worth a visit.

This shopping area is excellent if you are looking for western brands. There are many western apparel stores for clothing, shoes, and sporting goods. If you are not interested in shopping for this product there is are small side streets with local goods and Taiwan.

If you've never been to a pedestrian friendly shopping area in China, then Zhongshan Road Walking Street is an eye opener. The shops along the main thoroughfare is not the main attraction as these tend to sell branded goods. It's the side streets that you should check out for the smaller shops and restaurants. We were there during the week... More

I shopped down Zhongshan Street last Thursday morning. Not looking for anything in particular, I headed for the clutch of small boutiques in the off-street market. Lots of places selling children's wear: the cutest clothes you've ever seen. I bought some pink star-shaped hair clips for my granddaughter, and some beautifully -made shoes for my 1 year old grandson. In... More

good if you would like to shop for clothing or souveniers. but nothing much special to see. the road is not very long, most of the shops are the same with a few branches on the same road.

Like any typical walking street in China, the street is lined with local products and delicacies...Nothing to shout about. Unless you are looking for local delicacies to buy home, no particular reason to make a stop here

Since it was getting late,vdome of the stores and department stores were closed or about to close . Still, there was a sizable crowd of people walking up and down the... More

I was on a mission to find a night market and I was soooooooo glad to have visited Zhongshan Road. It's a strip of authentic Xiamen food and many small shops. It's absolutely amazing; everything including the food, shoes, clothes, etc. is soooooooo cheap!!!! Highly recommended for anyone who wants authentic food and cheap items. I will be here again...
