The first time i was there was 2003. and back then it was far nicer than recently.
with all the vendors on that street it really fucked up everything. and also looks bad with all the garbage laying around.
but some investors have stuck to their plan. they did invest a lot there and now it appears that most of those vendors are not allowed to be there. but im not sure.
the sidewalk is blocked off with those famous blue makeshift fences keeping those vendors away.
HURRAH. maybe now wudaokou will be decent enough to go walking through again. do not support vendors on the street. it just totally fucks up traffic that already has enough problems.
