Tunxi Old Street Night Strolling

 6-days winter solo backpacking in Mainland China
january 26 -  february 01, 2013 saturday to friday

Mt. Huangshan west, jade screen (yuping) trail

After a day of somehow trekking the nerve wrecking and leg breaking but with jaw-dropping and fascinating view along the trail of yungu and yuping of Mt. Huangshan, we went to tunxi old street for a relaxing food trip. I used "We" because I met a group of ladies along the trail whom one of them was fortunately my flightmate on tonight's flight to Beijing. They asked me to join them and go to this place.

how to go gere;
just ride a bus #6 and #12. No admission fee for this street as this is like the calle crisologo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.

It is situated in the center of Tunxi District, the location of Huangshan City Government. It is paved with maroon flagstones with a total length of 1,273 meters (about 1,392 yards), of which 895meters (about 979 yards) is the pedestrian commercial street. Shops standing on both sides are generally of two or three floors, which feature the local Anhui style of stone base, brick construction and tile roof. The layout of these buildings commonly takes on the appearance of shops in front while houses and workshops are to the rear. Once a professor from America was amazed by it and he said he had found an Oriental Ancient Rome. Nowadays it is also used as a natural studio for films and TV series.
