I love the photo of the fresh noodles. I’ve started making my own pasta and am finding it a struggle. The noodles in the photo are so uniform and beautiful… sigh.
Fresh noodles are so amazing. It is wonderful to go to a noodle shop and see them making your noodles right there in front of you. Talk about fresh.
It looks very humid in all of the pictures. It seems as though rain is a daily occurrence. The markets also all seem to be selling very fresh looking ingredients.
What I really want to say about China street is that people are very friendly to foreigners! All the foods and people I had and met were great, and China is one of the best countries I have ever traveled!
I really love the Yangzhou night! I think it is really powerful how the building is obviously still but the people are moving and not even taking a moment to notice the beauty around them. Also it is incredible how the fresh noodles look like yarn, that can be very deceiving.
Looks like very interesting just walking around the street and see all kind of things and learn.
Thank you for sharing these photos! Something that I have always wanted to try is authentic street food, and these photos really make it look amazing. Street food is something that is way less common in America, but I love the concept and am especially drawn to those fresh noodles. I hope one day I can go to China and experience this atmosphere — I love how the nightlife can be experienced through walking around markets and eating street food! I also appreciate how hardworking the people who manage the food stalls are to provide fresh delicious food each night.
Part of Shanghai’s appeal is the vibrancy of the streets and the rich culture of the locals. While I haven’t been to Nanjing, I was able to see the similarities in the photos even to Shanghai’s streets. The lanterns and small street vendors are very common place to Shanghai’s culture. I’ve purchased street noodles countless times and my mom regularly shops at the vegetable vendors and fruit markets rather than grocery stores. In addition to all the vendors, mopeds are another common characteristic in various parts of China. This method of transportation is convenient and popular due to the ease of bypassing traffic.
