Puqian (Chinese: 铺前镇) is a port town on the eastern shore of Dongzhai Harbor in Wenchang, Hainan province, China.[1][2]

Old street

Tong lau buildings

A road running from the port at the west to the southernmost point of the main road is lined with tong lau buildings similar in style to those of Haikou's Bo'ai Road area and those on Wennan Old Street in Wencheng Town, Wenchang. While the Bo'ai Road area buildings are in the process of being restored, and Wennan Old Street buildings have been completely restored, the buildings on Puqian's old street are dilapidated, some of which have been condemned or structurally collapsed inside.
