The street is hub for many wholesale markets. It’s also the home for many different products, especially the ones you can’t find in an ordinary store. The east-west road is divided into two parts. The eastern section mainly sells stationery and small commodities like toys and decors; while the western section mainly sells dried seafood, snacks and different ingredients for dishes.
It is a good place for shopkeepers to procure their goods. But many shoppers in Guangzhou also love shopping here. They can buy things cheaper, and they can buy something very special. For example, when it comes to Mid-autumn Festival and you want to try to make a mooncake by yourself, you can buy the mold and the ingredients here. If you want to dress up to celebrate Halloween, you can buy the costumes here.
Transportation: Metro Line 2 Haizhu Square Station (地铁海珠广场站) or Yide Xi (一德西), Yide Zhong (一德中) bus stops.
