Very touristy and popular area. The girls of our group were just busy all day long checking out that street. I highly recommend to come here and explore it yourselfe although it has something almost disneyland like.

Foreigner Street without foreigner. In my personal opinion is it more a tourist trap. I just go there, when I really have, and then I try to do it in the morning, when it's not so busy.

This is a lot like other streets in old Dali. Perhaps there is a little higher concentration of restaurants and clubs here.

If you don't have time to waste, don't go. There is nothing special about this place, it's just another street in downtown Dali.
