  • Street with plenty of cafes serving very good food, a lot of seafood. Prices affordable. Very safe. Lots of red lanterns causes that this place has a unique charm. On one of the corners of the street shop with nuts-be sure to visit him!

  • Alone walk I was walking. Restaurant under 三国之见龙卸甲 hot and sour it is many shops give the so-called crayfish, were lined up in addition to lamb Shabu Shabu and dessert shops. And eating out is not a feeling that while would pick somewhere at one restaurant. Great parade of pretty shops stores there. If you go absolutely recommended at night. I think one of the Beijing city. However, innards fluid on the ground food scraps, sunflower seeds, strange staring at neon lights on, just, and so be careful.

  • From this point and for the next two major blocks (going west), is what's called GuiJie, which is bascially a restaurant street. It's great to get dinner, but not such a great place to walk around. Pretty dead in the afternoon, and only really comes alive at night for dinner.
  • Fantastic night life of Beijing - a definite must-see.
