Most people pass through the town of Tunxi en route to climb Huangshan, or visit the idyllic villages of Southern Anhui. However, those who can spend a day in Tunxi should head to Tunxi Old Street for a glimpse of life in Anhui nearly 800 years ago.
The street is flanked by buildings that are built in a style unique to this part of China; stone base, brick walls and tile roof, with white-washed walls and stunning, dark-wood features. Shops, cafes and craft-shops spill out into this character-full street that is perfect for an afternoon stroll to pick up some local snacks and souvenirs.
