no sense to complain this area is loud and crowded - of course it is - it is meant to be for hundreds of years. lots of places with live music, dancing girls, street sellers, restaurants, shops - everything concentrated by and on the street....More

We stopped there only for food. And the food was great (vegetarian restaurant called pure lotus). The street is small, with beautiful lights, lots of little shops, and one supermarket. It's nice to see but there's lots of noise and is overcrowded so be prepared....More

We stopped here for lunch after a trip to see Nine Horse Hill. Enjoyed it very much and bought some great souvenirs to take home. Recommended.

Visited as our hotel was 5-10 min walk away. Basically a shopping, eating and entertainment area. Loud and noisy at night. Neon lights, fancy restaurants, loads of tourists (mostly Chinese). There are even discotheques. I guess most foreign visitors would prefer the much quieter rural...More

This market is very big and quite expensive. We wanted to have a look and see what’s there... everything! I was there twice, once in the early evening and once at night. There were always many people but you can’t expect anything else in China...More

A good place to find everything in one place, including English speaking stuff but just a commercial street. It is packed in the evening, but the touts and sellers are not at all aggressive which is a bonus over similar streets elsewhere

We really enjoyed West Street in the afternoon. Nice shops and relaxing atmosphere. When we came back in the evening a few days later, it was just horrible. Crowded and it seems that all shops changed into bars. Really disappointed.
