We visited in November during a rainy time so there were not many people on the street. We walked up and down in the rain and had lunch in one of the nicer looking restaurants that serve the ubiquitous beer fish. Understand that you have to select the fish that they cook and it is priced by the weight of... More

Yangshuo roads are now under major revamp. It's dusty and irritating. Obviously the planners dun understand how to complete ONE stretch of road at a time. Things are expensive here at West Street. I had 500ml German beer and a sausage with sauerkraut for Y96. And I see expansion works (more buildings coming up) too. Lijiang is more similar but... More

Nice to walk here with no traffic allowed, every place (cafe, bar, store) has its own design and unique fancy stuff :) Don't forget to walk the nearby streets, they are also full of interesting places. It slightly reminds me European little touristic cities like Hallstadt in Austria

West Street is named as such because it's catering to Westerners in general. There's only one purpose for West Street to be established, to get tourists and travellers to part with their money. There are heaps of restaurants (focusing on seafood), bars, tourist shops, fast food chains, and all that jazz. It gets loaded with people especially on weekends and... More

This street is one huge tourist trap, with shops, restaurants and bars. Very busy and noisy, not really my kind of place. Kind of fun to walk around just to check out the specracle of the mad crowds...

Obviously if you are in Yangshuo you go to West St. There are some interesting shops, but nothing that you won't probably find elsewhere in China

This street is busiest street in Yangshuo. I went to Yangshuo with my friends in July this year. This place is very special, where the mountain is very strange, I have not seen this look like the mountain. People say, " Guilin landscape tops those elsewhere, and Yangshuo landscape tops that of Guilin" is really the case. Yangshuo is the... More

If you are like Mozart and can appreciate music being deaf, then this is the street for you. I smirk when I heard the Chinese communist officials were going to be visiting yangshou so no one was risking playing live music. What a nice street it became for two blissful days and nights, until the officials must have decided yangshou... More

Though this is a nice place to have dinner I was not too impressed by the place itself. Far too touristic and VERY loud and crowded in the nighttime. Mind you that if you visit a 'Western bar' chances are that you end up with a bar population of 98% Chinese people.
