Add:Zhongshan Rd, Si Ming District, Xiamen, Fujian
The city's traditional high street, Zhongshan Road is lined by hundreds of shops. Leading to the shore, the bustling street combines cafes with contemporary stalls, bookshops, amid architecture that combines southeast Asian and European characteristics. Parts have a vintage feel, with pastel colors, peeling walls and archaic wooden windows rendering a special charm. Zhongshan Road is also among the best places in Xiamen to find local snacks such as baked squid, peanut soup, satay noodles, perfect for refuelling after an afternoon's retail therapy or just eat while shopping. Local specialties ― including desserts, dried seafood and other snacks ― can be bought from China's time-honoured brand Wuzaitian and Huangzehe as souvenirs of a New Year break.
