Well, as I know, there is no souvenir shops nearby the hotel. Thus you are suggested to buy them inside or nearby the scenic areas. :)

Answered by Cherly from UNITED KINGDOM | Oct. 19, 2014 20:22

You are suggested to take a taxi to your destination directly. The distance is just 1.2 miles.And the taxi fare is about CNY10.
Or you can take public bus no. 30 at Baoxian Bridge Station, and get off at Shizi Street Station. Then walk to Zhengyang Pedestrian Street. :)
Answered by Katherine from USA | Oct. 21, 2014 08:26

Hi, thanks for the reply. I’m trying to map on google Baoxian Bridge and Shizi Street. I’m guessing the station names are from the bridge and street they’re near. I guess google isn’t detailed enough because I can’t see it. Could you provide more details where Baoxian Bridge and Shizi Street stations are? Thanks.
Answered by Luna from CHINA | Oct. 22, 2014 04:25

The Baoxian Bridge is crossing the Gui River. To take the bus, you should walk through the bridge first. In Chinese, the bus stop is 宝贤桥 (Baoxianqiao). Shizi Street is on East Jiefang Road and you still need to walk east for around 164yd to Zhengyang Pedestrian. In Chinese, it is 十字街(Shizijie). Now try to google it!
Answered by Katherine from USA | Oct. 22, 2014 15:03

i'm guessing Google map isn't to that level of detail, I don't see Shizijie. I do see a bridge, it goes on Shihui Road. Is the stop at the corner of Shihui Road and Yiwu Road?
Answered by Luna | Oct. 23, 2014 02:28

Yes, the bus stop is near the Sihui Road and Yiwu Road.
