Without being introduced, Zhengyang Pedestrian Street becomes a new landmark of Guilin. It enjoys a high reputation of "the first commercial shopping street in western China" This street is 666 meters long and surrounded by restaurants, hotels, theatres, stadiums, commercial facilities and scenic spots.
With the good location in the city center, Zhengyang Pedestrian Street is easily to access through various ways. The Jie Fang Jiao bus-stop is nearby and the stop is also where taxis drop off visitors.
Because it is a pedestrian street, the vehicles are prohibited to enter into this area. So tourists can be carefree to stroll and do a bit of window shopping in the safety environment.
As one of the newest attractions in Guilin, Zhengyang Pedestrian Street has many Chinese-style structures mixed with some Western colonial period buildings selling everything from jade and teapots to clothing, woven, jewelry, souvenirs, as well as minority handicrafts and embroidery.
