Old Hefang Street was a great find! Why had I not seen it before? I have no idea. When we go to Hangzhou we usually end up at the Silk Market, but this street was wonderful.
Whiles the real old Hefang Street was ruined some years ago, it has been recreated. There were Chinese entertainers, wonderful shops selling all sorts of goodies from food (many restaurants), tea, linen, silk quilts, musical instruments, Chinese arts and crafts, artifacts. Everything!
We did not go all along - but I am not worried. I will go there again soon, and I will get there when we stay in Hangzhou next month, just before we return to Australia.
This is some of what I came to see. Real Chinese entertainers. Real Chinese stuff.
