The restoration of arcade buildings of Wennan Street in Wenchang City is near completion, and provides a good example of how local communities can restore the Qilou old street in Haikou.
Based on the principle of protecting the historic style of arcade architecture of Wennan Street, the restoration project has integrated the functions of leisure, tourism and commerce to position it as a special Southeast Asian style Cultural Street.
With a total length of 1,030 meters, the restoration work of Wennan Street started in 2011. Numerous shops on both sides of the street as well as road reconstruction have been the focus of the project.
The streets have retained the layout, architecture, and even the lifestyles of ancient times. Visitors who take a stroll along the street are treated a taste of traditional Wenchang life.
