There are too many long and short alleys in Changsha. Some are crooked and narrow, and with the clean rock road surface. Taiping Street is one of the most complete old streets and lanes in the city. Since Changsha has been a city in the Warring States Period, it has been and remained the core area of the city until 2000.
There are many historical sites such as Jia Yi's former residence, Changhuai Well, and old houses with black tiles and white walls along the street. It is also a well-known place for street food in Changsha with hundreds of shops for specialties. Whether it is a century-old shop or a newly-emerged specialty shop, it may impress you with the good tastes.
