Shopping Street sights in Hángzhōu
- Sort by:
At the south end of Zhongshan Zhonglu is this fun and fascinating bustling pedestrian street (清河坊历史文化街;Qīnghéfāng Lìshǐ Wénhuà Jiē), with makeshift puppet theatres, teahouses and curio stalls. Chomp on a chewy nánsòng dìngshèng gāo (南宋定胜糕; southern Song dingsheng cake, Y1.50), or a guǐcài jiānbing (鬼菜煎饼; Chinese burrito; Y3), pick up a hand-carved stone teapot (Y29) or a box of lóngxūtáng (龙须糖; dragon whiskers sweets; Y10 a box) and grab some ginseng or silk. It's also the home of several traditional medicine shops, including the Húqìngyú Táng Chinese Medicine Museum, which is an actual dispensary and clinic.
