Brief of Hefang Street

Hefang Street is located at the foot of Wu Hill (吴山), and it's a part of Qing He Fang (清河坊), the most well-preserved ancient street of the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). Now it’s a famous snack street where you can find a large variety of local snacks such as roasted walnuts, and "dragon-whisker" candy. Besides, you also can find a variety of Chinese crafts, such as paper-cutting and hand-made dough figurines. The street is full of art hawkers, caricaturists, candy sculptors, old-fashioned movie players, storytellers, bonsai shops, pillow shops, teahouses, and an array of small eateries, making Hefang Street charmingly lively.
