Qushuiting Street is located to the south of Daming Lake, the north of Xigengdao Street, the west of Baihuazhou Historical and Cultural Block and the east of Fuxue Wenmiao, popularly known as the Confucian Temple of Shandong province.

There is no hustle and bustle and no heavy traffic. The quaint small shops and the stream are in harmony and the small stone bridge across the stream exudes the flow of the years.

Houzaimen Street

Houzaimen Street is connected to Qushuiting Street to the west and ends by Xianxi Alley in the east.

Grey bricks, grey-green roof tiles, dark red windows and inky gates form the old buildings in classical style that gives a strong sense of a bygone era.

The sun shines on the limestone slabs through the green leaves, emphasizing the gentleness and serenity of Houzaimen Street.

Gulubazi Street

At the gate of a shop in the street, green lotus leaves, together with the red hanging lanterns, inject vitality into the old street.

Qifengqiao Street

The gently flowing Qifeng and Tengjiao springs, the old buildings located by the river and the Qifeng Bridge, together offer visitors a picturesque scroll.
