I love walking around this area. A lot of the paving is done in the old Chinese narrow bricks, laid on their side. Lots of big trees add shade for those hot summer days. Interesting craft shops and cool cafes. Yes, the food and drinks...More

if you want to take some nice pics, have some little snacks or just sit and chill out, then this is the place. Some coffee shops, noodle places and art galleries. It's kids friendly and no cars around. Worth spending couple hours there.

i love this area of shenzhen. they are old factory buildings converted into hip galleries, coffee shops, boutiques and i think this is an area worth enjoying for some hours, far more authentic than the commercialism of malls.
