Here’s the Xiadu Street (下渡大街) that begins next to the apartment building I’m living in. It’s a shortcut to Lujiang metro station (鹭江站). Unfortunately I can’t see this village from my window, but when ever I walk through it, it reminds me of my first home in China in the Nanting village (南亭村). Lots of small shops where you can find meat, vegetables, fruits, household items and a guy who can fix your bicycle.
If you’re an expat living along the Binjiang East Road (滨江东路) in the Haizhu district (海珠区) and haven’t experienced the back streets yet I advice you to do so. There’s a lot to see, buy and sometimes especially smell.
