What is “Old Street”?
The “Old Street” is the largest shopping street in Shenzhen and is comparable to Shibuya in Japan.
It is crowded like this. Weekends are especially crowded.
Many of the buildings are quite stylish. There are lots of police officers.
It looks like an installation.
A department store called Taiyo Plaza in the middle of the building is a good place to meet up. There is also a bakery inside. I often use the restroom here.
Can I use it for Wholesale?
The stores here at “Dongmen” are sold at much lower prices than others, so local Chinese people come here to shop.
Buildings are cool.
McDonald’s and KFC buildings. They look different with a Chinese style.
Wholesale shoe store in Old Town. You can buy them for about 250 Japanese yen.
Old Street is a must-visit place when you come to Shenzhen.
Ticket machines in the Shenzhen subway often do not accept bills or coins; it is better to buy an IC card.
Although it is called “Old Street,” it is not lined with old buildings. During the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty, this area was called Shenzhen Ruins, and was the most crowded market in Shenzhen, but now there are old-style new buildings and shopping centers.
