중국 가본거면 굳이 갈 필요가 있나 싶음. 야시장이 있다고는 하는데 그냥 명동이고, 안좋은 의미라고 생각해도 됨. 근데 나는 왜 5박이나 했는 지 모르겠지만,, 이 거리 자체는 별로인데 괜찮은 식당이 여러 군데 있음 more »I would definitely stay here again. I don't know why I spent 5 nights, but the street itself is not very good, but there are a lot of good restaurants.
It was fun to walk around and look/buy the interesting products the vendors had to offer. It was a fun observation to see how the vendors came in and setup their store fronts. The food from the street vendors was delicious and affordable. Some vendors did have quite impressive performances in selling their goods like the first stall at the start of the street selling coconuts. It's an interesting and fun experience to walk along the street.
The varied choice of local food is simply astonishing. Downside is, it's so crowded you have to queue to get a seat, to order your food. It's a night market for tourists, very crammed while walking through the street. You find the usual t-shirts, local ornaments, and on that Saturday, there was a live opera performance. A very lively festive atmosphere.
