Loved the main street as well as exploring all the laneways. Statues also ng the street are amazing - so lifelike. Best part was exploring all the “real life” hutongs on the perimeter. Please walk off the beaten path and explore.

This is one of the side streets near the Qianmen Street. It's more catered to locals with interesting stores and snack shops. It's not far from Zhengyang Gate so it's worth your time to come here for a stroll.

Still a great street with traditional stores. Incredible silks, beautiful Chinese dresses. Traditional cutlery shop worth a visit. Go to the shoe shop where Mao got his sewn, very traditional sewn soles still available. Very handy to Qianmen subway.

Cute small street in an oldfashion style. Very hard to find it without English-Chinese map, almost no one on the streets around the Tiananmen square knew about it. If you have enough time or gap between visiting the main attractions you may include this street...More

I stayed at 365 Inn, a decent hostel on Dazhalan Street itself and this is a very good area to base yourself in to visit Beijing as it's so close to Qianmen metro and several attractions. The restaurant right next to the hostel was AMAZING...More
