Despite there being a large group of VIP's visiting the attraction and police closing off the street for some time, we were able to explore the laneways each with an intriguing history and many local artists before the reopening. The buildings are fascinating with descriptions in both English and Chinese, each with it's own story. There also craft workshops and... More

The place preserved and/or re-build to the old FuZhou building architecture in Ming Dynasty. It has a pedestrian only walking streets, with plenty of restaurants, snack places and souvenir stores.

This is a great place to learn some culture and not need a translator. Shopping is of the typical low quality tourist stuff but if you look for local items like Bone Combs, scarfs and such you will go away satisfied.

It is a developed tourist sight with English introduction boards and easily accessible by public transportation. Name with meaning as 3 lanes 7 alleys, this sight is home to past residences of famous historic politicians along lanes and alleys, now opened to public for viewing. Free entrance for some and even those are a good browse to get to know... More

Went there on a Friday morning while on our week long vacation of Fujian. Was a little overcast and so, the street was not crowded at all. Was very pleasant to look at the architecture of the area. There are explanations in both English and Chinese, so it caters to non Chinese as well. Would recommend going there at night... More

the 3 wider and 4 narrower streets on both side of the main street are the real reason to visit here as to the main street is more for shopping and eating. Be sure to try out Tong Li Rou Yan, which they pound pork with starch mixed in to paper thin, and then make Wonton like food called Rou... More

The oldest section of Fuzhou includes buildings which are hundreds of years old. Over the last 20 years the area has been renovated to become an outdoor plaza with small restaurants, shops and toy sellers.

Like others have mentioned, many buildings here are actually recent reconstructions of what old Fuzhou would have looked like. That said, it's still a lovely break from the rest of the city and worth a stroll if you are in town. It's a good place to shop for souvenirs, although be warned that only about a third of the products... More
