From June 15th to 16th, a creative market opened at Haikou Ximen Old Street. The unique creativity, dazzling handicrafts and authentic local snacks all added some fashionable elements to this 100-year old street with Hainanese characteristics.
On the afternoon of the 16th, the old street was crowded with the citizens and tourists, who were mostly attracted by a dozen of booths lining up along the old street.
Citizen Xiaodie, a fan of Hanfu clothing, started up a Hanfu activity office with her friends. She would like to display their own products through this creative market. “ We hoped more people can have an access to know about Hanfu clothing and Chinese traditional culture. And we also hoped to provide an activity platform for the communication of Hanfu fans.” She said.
The activity of creative market was first held in May last year. According to Chen Kang, the initiator of the creative market, the aim was to offer an opportunity for more young peoples to know about the culture of Haikou’s old street, and add some colors to the nightlife of the citizens.
