Modern China, shopping and food street. A maze of food alleys and other small shops, bars, etc. to the west of the main street are a must see. Local foods of all kinds can be sampled. These alleys and lanes are not recorded on this track. The jostling crowds and environment might discouraged having electronic devices or cameras out in the open.
