I have never been in such a crush of people before but all were polite, happy and enjoying themselves. The streets are narrow with interesting shops and eating places. You could get lost so must keep track of the direction you go in.

Walked through area and stopped for lunch on Wendy Wu China tour. Really interesting to see how China was before they built all the tower blocks. Tried the tofu beating and locals were extremely friendly We westerners were the "freak show"

This is worth visiting. It does give you a flavour of ' old China' before the cultural revolution. They now live in high rise flats , so the contrast is amazing.. There are crowds and crowds of people, so be prepared. If you are fair...More
