Brief of Hefang Street
This street is full of art hawkers, candy sculptors, pillow shops, caricaturists, old-fashioned movie players, storytellers, bonsai shops, teahouses, an array of small eateries, and a really great snack street just to the east of the obnoxiously located McDonald's (they do have the only soft serve chocolate cones in town though). The street stretches from Wushan Square all the way down to Zhonghe road. Hang a right and you’ll end up at the Drum Tower Antique market. On the way to check out the old stuff, you can pick up some new. There are the touristy tidbits: swords, masks, paintings, chops, tea, etc. But, you can also find some interesting stuff. Be prepared to bargain.
Take bus Y8 or 85 and get off at the Wushan Square Station.
