Wow, beautiful place

A must see area of beautiful ancient exterior buildings. Inside every building are modern upmarket shops & restaurants. Madame Tussauds is located here. Souvenirs costs more here.

This is quite a modern looking shopping street. There are lots of clothes stores, souvenir shops, and Starbucks for coffee.

A pristine place, nicely preserved, depicting old Chinese architecture. There are a variety of shops selling souvenirs to Chinese tea along with high street labels like Zara, all neatly tucked in traditional Chinese buildings. A variety of restaurants and cafes abound the place too; from Quanjude Peking Duck to Dong Lai Shun, all have a branch in here. Plenty of... More

Good place for walk. Nicely renovated (or new) district. Clean main street. And very cheap food on sticks.

As part of a tour group, we didn't get to spend a lot of time here. We stopped in a few different stores as we walked through the area, but all of the goods seemed of relatively low quality.

Great place to walk around, apart from all tourist attractions. I was very surprised about this place and highly recommended it for tourists. Easy to shop and take nice pictures. From there you can go easily to the acrobats show. The hotel Emperor is right there.

After we have checked in our hotel on our first day in Beijing, we have decided to begin our China programme with a visit to the Tiananmen Square. Before we left the hotel, we have been recommended to walk a street that would take us directly to the Square in about half an hour. After a while Qianmen surprisingly welcomed... More
