West Street is shaped like an "S". It has a history of more than 1400 years. It is full of ancient architecture. Although this street is less than 1000 meters, it shows an international sentiment. There are a lot of restaurants, hotels, bars, and all kinds of shops selling souvenirs and articles.

The Reason Why the West Street is Called "Global Village":

The architectural style combines the strengths of the east and the west. No matter whether old or young, man or woman, waiters or sellers, all the people on West Street can speak fluent English.

At every corner of this street, you may see people of different colors and races drinking beer, tasting coffee, or chatting leisurely. It shows a dense exotic atmosphere. It is no wonder that West Street is considered to be the "Global Village".

They sell Western-style food, such as Pizza, steak, and Italian coffee, etc. The Yangshuo locals like rice noodles and Yangshuo Beer Fish. As time goes by, the food culture combines perfectly.
