Guilin has one of China’s most vibrant and eclectic nightlife scenes, thanks in large part to its wealth of night and food markets that dot the colorful city when the sun goes down. Here are a just a few of the best deserving of a peek.


Zhengyang Pedestrian Street

Zhengyang Pedestrian Street is not technically a night market, per se, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t give it a shout out. The bustling shopping area is Guilin’s busiest destination and only gets better at night. The seemingly endless line of shops offers everything from fashion to handmade trinkets and incredible food.


Xicheng Road Evening Market

Xicheng Road Evening Market was established in 2011 and boasts more than 200 shops covered in vibrant red tents. It’s the perfect place to find authentic goods, including traditional bamboo products, Three Treasures-Sanhua Wine and colorful Southern Minorities costumes for sale. You’ll also find some modern goods here, too.


Shangshui Foods Street

Shangshui Foods Street is just a few skips away from Zhengyang Pedestrian Street, but has far more character and excellent eats. The strip is filled with antique buildings shoveling out both Chinese and Western cuisine, alongside ample food stalls selling homemade meals.


Yangshuo West Street

Yangshuo West Street is one of the oldest streets in the city, dating back more than 1,400 years. Nicknamed the “global village” of Guilin, there’s a little bit of everything found here. There are plenty of modern stores selling clothes and other trinkets, as well as food stalls and a small market set up in the evening for handmade crafts.


Zhongshan Middle Road

Zhongshan Middle Road is one of the two largest night markets in the city and gets pretty crowded once the sun goes down. That’s because it’s surrounded by bars and restaurants, and is a favorite among tourists. The stalls here are loaded with all kinds of products to take home to family and friends.
