If you’re going to visit Yellow Mountain (Huangshan) you might as well stop here at Tunxi Mountainous Town. It is well worth the stop with the rolling green hills and the tea plantations and ancient villages nearby. It is a rather quaint town; most unlike most cities I’ve been to in China. It is relaxing and the people are rather... More

We - a group of six Kaki, explore this small town before walking up the yellow mountain 黄山the next day. Our guide bring us to visit the famous ink factory, shopping for the little thing, hand craft, tried some local food, and relax ourselves at one Chinese tea house. Recommended to stop for half or full day. Don't miss this... More

Tunxi is a cute town but there isn't much to do. I'm here to visit the Yellow Mountains (as I think most tourists are) and had planned on staying at the top for a night. Unfortunately there is a typhoon approaching and the woman at my hostel strongly suggested not staying over night on the mountain as weather is unpredictable... More

This is half an hour from the train station And is quite convenient. It is a town of about 250,000 people near Huangshan. It has grown tremendously during this period. There is the old street, the new street and a few museums here.

If here to climb Huangshan (Yellow Mountain), more often than not the first consideration is whether to stay in Tunxi (about an hour’s drive) or Tangkou (at the foot of the mountain). For my money Tunxi wins out over the rather bleak-looking Tangkou. The ancient town is touristy there’s no doubt, but its narrow (& carless!!!) streets, dark wooden buildings... More

The shops dominate the old town, but forget all the stone carvings and other touristy stuff and check out the architecture. It is beautiful old city with lots of alleys, where the original families still live.

By Chinese standards Tunxi is just a small town of little relevance, but it is has a truly beautiful old town with a long main street (Lao Jie) lined with beautiful merchant houses converted into an infinite series of tourist shops (the big Chinese pharmacy is worth a visit), a few good restaurants, a maze of little old alleys and...

The old area of tunxi is quite interesting but rather geared to tourists. Souvenirs are in abundance in the little shops making it feel like a tourist trap.It is pleasant to stroll around the town in the evening.

A village in Chinese terms, only 110,000 citizens. Hosts a beautiful ancient street loaded with nice stores.
