Wuma Street, a famous commercial street in China, is called Wuma Fang in ancient times. It is one of the old streets in Wenzhou. It connects Jiefang Street in the East with Park Road and Cicada Street in the West with Fuqian Street. The street is 400 meters long and 12 meters wide. There are 14 lanes on both sides of the street. Legend has it that it began in the Eastern Jin Dynasty and remained unchanged in the Tang and Song Dynasties. It was renamed Wuma Street in the Qing Dynasty, Zhongshan Road in 1934 and Wuma Street was restored after 1949. In 1974, it was converted into asphalt pavement. In April 1984, it was designated as the landmark shopping pedestrian street in Wenzhou.
In a small restaurant at No. 34 Dengxuanfang, Wuma Street, this is a husband and wife's shop with a small area, but I would like to say that this is the shop where I have eaten the most delicious snacks and flat foods almost all over the country. There's absolutely no age for you.
Wenzhou people should all know this place. It used to be the busiest commercial street. Whether local people or foreigners, they would come here for a visit. There are still many shops, but the locals won't come to visit them anymore. But it's still a wonderful place in our memory. If you come, remember to eat a bowl of fish balls or wonton in the next alley!
When we went there, we were in construction. Every shop had its doors removed. Obviously, there was no commercial prosperity. There were all wires and cables in the street, and there was no desire to take pictures. But the retro style is quite strong, because the houses are very old-fashioned, exactly like the old city. There are many alleys in the old street, which are crowded and dirty.
