The special part about Shang Tang Street is its stores and the red lanterns hanging on every store. The Stores sell Su-fans, traditional Chinese toys, costumes, and slippers, decorated dried gourds, and silk. There is also one traditional Ping-Tan Show Stage with singers and Chinese music players singing and playing music to the public for free. Shang Tang Street is long, however the exhibiting part of the street is short. Thus it is recommended for busy or lazy travelers to pay a short and quick visit After walking out of Shang-Tang Street, we ate in a very old-style restaurant called The Big Second Raw-fried Bun Store (大阿二生煎）. It is called raw fried bun store, because the buns are fried on the pan right after they are fermented, which is different from the common way of steaming or baking them. The store workers were friendly and old fashioned. And because everything was so old fashioned, we were a bit worried about the hygiene part of the food and service. So We took some stomach pills to make ourselves feel safe after we got home.
