Very nice place to visit during the day or at night, lots of shopping malls and small shops line the street - from expensive western shops and restaurants to small local ones. Can be very busy at the weekend.

The whole street is going through extensive refurbishment. Nonetheless, it's still bustling with tourists, both local and foreign. For the slightly more adventurous visitors, they should venture out to the northern side of Zhongshan Road.

Great to see a city refurbishing buildings instead of knocking them all down. Lots of interesting tea shops.

Lots of shops. Old & new side by side. Local delicacies in abundant & in affordable prices. Try exploring around the streets including the back & side lanes but make sure you go in groups to stay safe.

Most are fixed price shops. No bargaining allowed. Some shops does have some perks if you buy more than a certain quantity or $.
