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. Use our Beijing trip planner to add Dashilan and other attractions to your Beijing vacation plans.

    Was crowded with tourists. This is the lovely long-established store shopping. Road is not wider. It is appearance of the stores feel the history and just walking around in the fun. Qianmen Dajie shop more folksy feel.

    So many days in Beijing, to find buying something to eat, wear, small souvenirs, there are few pedestrian streets in the cheapest, so come twice. Is not convenient for transportation, every tram has tricycle, quick, 40 back to my hotel in chongwenmen generation. All in all, like here.

    保留了歷史外形,保留了百年老店,不知為什麼就是欠缺歷史的感覺。
