Dashilan, Beijing
(3.8/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Dashilan into our Beijing trip builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Beijing.

  • Visited on the tour was the shutter city and State. New tourist destination during the Olympic Games the Government led by the retro, rent increases, major shops are withdrawn gradually is likely. Doesn't belong to the train route is frequented by tourists, was singing the deserted State (a line). More to come here, Hu road walks personally preference is.

Went in knowing I was around so groomed and Olympic machine, had been developing construction area next to the Forbidden City Monzen area so crowded from the old location is like. You can visit just to stroll through the streets lined with buildings of the subject of the photo opportunity because of that.

  • 都說大柵欄曾為北京一等的商業街,但是整個規劃重建之後,老實說有些讓人失望。儘管還是舊式建築,卻弄得太新,已經找不到歷史的況味。
