Creative locales in Yongqing Fang worth visiting


Enning Road (恩宁路), once the economic core area of Liwan District, carries the precious memories of many Guangzhouers. After 1950s, the Road has experienced a huge recession and lost its prosperity. Lucky enough, the main street is redeveloped as a cultural street and becomes the landmark of Guangzhou again currently. 

After the renovation, you can now find a creative neighborhood composed of several unique alleys — Yongqing Fang (永庆坊), which originates from the old Yongqing Street, No. 99 of Enning Road. If you slowly dig into the lanes, you will find some creative locales that will render you a "time-traversing" experience.
