Liulichang West Street, Beijing

(4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
A haven for souvenir hunters, Liulichang West Street offers various shops with a seemingly endless supply of traditional handicrafts, artworks, and antiques. Dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), the historic street rose to fame thanks to the colored glaze factory that operated here. Take a stroll down the atmospheric walkway and absorb a host of intricately decorated stone buildings with intriguing, characterful shops, including the largest antiquarian bookstore in the country.

  • There are shops that sell papers and pens especially designed for calligraphy which are worth the while to see as well as antique shops.  more »
  • I had visited this place over 10 years ago, has remained the same, here you will find all kinds of brushes, stamps, books and prints in all sizes, don't get caught by the fact that you are in a store, you should always negotiate the price on everything.
