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.

Beijing offers accommodations to suit the needs of every traveler, with clean, affordable hostels open to foreign backpackers, practical mid-range hotels for the business trip and group tour, and luxury four- and five-star hotels available at reasonable prices.
