South Yanan Road, Hangzhou 310002, China
Last night we went to Wushan Square and it was wonderful. I believe these markets have been restored or built and are not originals however, the atmosphere is lovely. Easy to find, just near Wushan Square. The buildings, lanterns, statues, environment is how we would imagine China. Lots of people but not congested. An array of little stalls, shops, activities. Many locals applying their trade. Glass blowing, sketching, carving, it is all here. herbal medicine shops, tea houses and obviously enjoyed by locals and tourists. Very clean and the kids would love it. We visited after seeing the Fountain Light show on West Lake and as we wandered to the square had the bonus of seeing hundreds of people dancing in the square, children skating and playing. A relief from the days heat.
Something for everyone with traditionally costumed people selling snacks. Plenty of silk stores. Architecture is very old and in good repair with museums and cultural homes to step inside. Great coffee houses.
