Hubin Pedestrian Street – Location and Highlights

Hubin Pedestrian Street hangzhou

Hubin Pedestrian Street (湖滨路步行街) is situated at the boundary between West Lake and the city of Hangzhou. It not only offers panoramic views of the picturesque West Lake and its surrounding mountains but also provides an excellent vantage point to appreciate the changes in weather from sunny to cloudy, and even misty. Particularly during the rainy season, strolling along the lakeside amidst the drizzle creates a scene where the mist merges seamlessly with the water and sky.

This area serves as the grand hall and façade of Hangzhou, making it one of the most eye-catching spots in the city, especially at night. The streets lined with fashionable and innovative architectural styles have won numerous international design awards. Not far from the famous shopping street is the West Lake Music Fountain, a sight worth seeing. With the distant gem-like Baoshi Mountain illuminated by lights, the brightly lit Beishan Road, and the sparkling night sky over West Lake serving as the backdrop, the fountain adds a romantic atmosphere to the scene.

The Hubin Pedestrian Street area boasts four major commercial complexes:

Hubin Intime IN77: As the largest commercial complex within the Hubin Pedestrian Street area, it leads the commercial development of the entire street.

The mall also has a designated area introducing multiple well-known domestic Hanfu (traditional Chinese clothing) brands, becoming a must-visit spot for Hanfu enthusiasts.
