My husband and I had a wonderful time walking along this street and it's many side roads. The area is bustling, lots of shops -big and small, and the seafood is amazing.

Starting from Si Ming Bei. there are varieties of shops and eateries ( I particularly recommend one called Ah Xi Shrimp noodle, which was very good), food is to the taste of everyone. Zhongshan Road is filled with so many kind of shops, clothes,... More

Old shopping street, now overrun by megastores. A number of our favorite little shops have disappeared, most regrettably the music store and a small jewelry shop.

Good selection of street foods and unique gifts, some are cheap and some are expensive. From this area, you can see Gulangyu island. There are two botanical garden near this place. You can also go to another place around xiamen from this area because you can easy find BRT or buses stop in this place.

For China, this is an especially cordial market street, a wonderful place to eat Chinese snacks. Move from stall to stall and try to eat it all!

Any brand is the concept of this road I think. In a kilometer stretch, it is incredible to see the number of brand outlets that exist. The adjacent alleys are filled with street food hawkers. This place should be on anyone's list if visiting Xiamen.

Best to walk mid afternoon if you want to avoid the crowd... although even the evening crowd counts as an experience. The stores that line the street - tea shops and shops selling pastries are literally tourist traps. But if you explore and go into the side streets, that's where the best "eats" are. Where you see lines of people... More

Nice colonial buildings on the bustling walking street. Very nice experience exploring this place. Certain part of the street can be crowded. Nicer to visit at night with the buildings nicely lit up.
