How to get there:

Central Avenue runs from north to south. It's northern boundary is Youyi Lu (Yǒuyì Lù, 友谊路), just east of Zhaolin Park.

Constructed in 1898, Central Avenue (Zhōngyāng Dàjiē, 中央大街) is Asia's longest pedestrian street, running 1,450 m (1,586 yd) north-south through downtown Harbin. The cobblestone street is lined with more than 70 buildings, housing both European and Chinese-style offices, shops and restaurants.

Dubbed by locals as "the gallery of European architectural art," this street is a testament to Harbin's culturally diverse past and present.

Home to many of the city's best shops and restaurants, Central Avenue is one of Harbin's greatest attractions.
