Wuliuxiang is an alley surrounded by old-style houses near the Donghe river in Hangzhou city, East China's Zhejiang province that was recently transformed into a love themed street called Miss5.

Graffiti crawled on white walls , a "blessing wall" where people can write their wishes on was built at a corner of the street and rose sculptures were put up at the entrance greeting visitors. As reported, there are six theme scenes at Miss5, respectively describing six states in a romantic relationship.

Wuliuxiang was founded in Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) when it was originally called Wuliuyuan (Wuliu park). It used to be a residence area for high officials and noble lords, but was later turned into an aggregation place for craftsmen and businessmen. A train was built during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and the town became busy since then.
