It’s the ideal area to take a break and recharge, since a lot of western comforts are available
The Street is lined with small shops and street vendors selling a variety of snacks and souvenirs. English is widely spoken here and the town itself has become a centre for studying English in China.
The street was built during the Sui Dynasty in 590. The traditional buildings now house a multi-cultural blend of café culture, giving it the feel of an international centre.
