The Rainy West Street

 2011-09-13    Sterling    Sights    Yangshuo    604  

West Street was built in 590 AD. So far, it has 1,400 years of history. West Street is 1180 meters long and 8 meters wide, both sides of the street are simple and elegant houses, with tiles, sloping roof, white washed walls, and hanging balconies. West Street is one kind of inner petty bourgeoisie style, whose business model is generally the same with Beijing's Nanluoguxiang and Shanghai’s Tianzifang. 

It was evening when we arrived at Yangshuo, after eating supper, although it rained a little outside, I still decided to walk around the West Street.

Walking through the West Street, let the rain fell on the body, it was great, under the dim light, just as in the fairyland.

Probably it was rainy, there were few guests in the shop, and the rain was also a little cool, and when the wind blew, the head became clear at once.

West Street is an ancient street with historical and cultural atmosphere. It is said that it was a place for Dr. Sun Yat-sen to give his speech, as well as the place for hundreds of presidents, prime ministers from many countries (such as Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, Margaret Thatcher, Ho Chi Minh City, etc.) to hang around.

It is said that West Street is a foreigner street full west color.

Many foreign people come here to open restaurants and coffee shops, enjoy rendering their respective petty bourgeoisie in Yangshuo town.

Er… it read: please don’t touch me in Chinese characters! In fact, I really didn’t intend to touch them.

Of course, there are also many foreigners coming here to enjoy the petty bourgeoisie, or have a drink…
