Dashilan, Beijing

4.0
Pass through the distinctive ornate gate and enter Dashilan, the most ancient and famous commercial street in Beijing. Though it originates from the Yuan dynasty, the locals expanded it to its largest size during the Ming dynasty, and today it stretches 275 m (902 ft). Experience Chinese antiquity in the street's old buildings and the surviving historic shops and stores. You can find many goods there, ranging from superior quality silk, shoes, and hats, to tea houses. Try some of the traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, and don’t miss tasting the local snacks as well.

  • Here in front of the Forbidden City, is the most hot street, there are many old Beijing famous stores, the inner David Tongren temple in this all have shops, but now some shops are too commercial, but it is recommended that the first time to Beijing people can go to this game.

  • We liked the street of Qianmen in which we walked and did some shopping without precipitation around 19:00 at the end of the day. Nice walk without too many people. Beautiful architecture and beautiful shops.

  • After years of continuous transformation, the road conditions and sanitary conditions have improved considerably. The pedestrian street is still bustling and lively, but other streets still retain the living atmosphere of the residents, and the visitors are not interferes.

  • This is a famous shopping Street within walking distance from the tiananmen square. It's a cool place to walk around and shop for souvenirs. The price is somewhat reasonable, but more importantly, the variety is excellent. Get your pack of post cards because post office does have it.
  • Nice atmosphere on this street
  • Fantastyczne miejsce. Wejdź a poczujesz się jak na Magical Mystery Tour w czasie. / Fantastic place, enter here and you will feel a breath of history on your neck. Plus lots of interesting people, not only tourists, the Chinese are extremely nice, polite, talkative. Recommend taking a walk here.

  • If shopping in Beijing will be the first place of call Dashilan Street. Architecture, is entirely of China as a derivative of our Independence has more ethnic and, if possible, once bordered Singapore's original. The modern Beijing life and ethnic life was a gorgeous town ' digestion. I think at the very beginning of the must-see cities in the world. They're going to Beijing will not be easy to do and I've prepared a list of, here you go: 1-Wangfuijing Street, Scorpion, snake, Beijing ördeğine, squid and wood worms up to mobile food vendors do not necessarily past operations. 2-the great wall of China and the forbidden city. 3-iSTANBUL's İstiklal Street, Dashilan shopping should be done in derived. 4-you've never seen, I shall enjoy it unless you know its name taken from the fruit taste. Fakattttt ... 1-never, ever, to the old town is not entered in the wc, because non-closed cabins, placed side by side with our alaturka toilet-like cells in the noise and smell the poop in the middle of each place by spreading of Chinese you can create severe traumas. (That's not the whole of Beijing, was mislead not) 2-If you don't like Surprises, you can't eat dinner in unfamiliar places. 3-Oh, Sir, I like the meter in the cab if possible when you negotiate price when suddenly out of the cab can double and objected when speaking to the driver of a sudden turn into a monster shouted Zhang-wong. Metro is fine and common. 4-What makes A claim that he's the undisputed, with Chinese. The Communist regime the flexibility to them unutturmuş. 5-Beijing's wholly-sin, a spice that can seem strange, Ive used to get used to the smell for two days. Moreover, it is sharp, meals, taxi, breath, most luxury stores everywhere. 6-place recipe than a Chinese person. A street beyond, 20 minutes or a few kilometers away in a different place to describe it as perfectly normal. However Beijing is again a wonderful experience.
