A neat shopping street, which is too commercial for me. It is car free, that's nice, very clean, but the nice parts are the sidestreets.

One of the oldest and famous pedestrian streets of Beijing! so many shops and restaurants around this huge area, all connected by the main central street where theres a tram line that passes only durinh Chinese holidays, is better to visit on the weekends as it's a bit desert during the week due to his vastness!

It's not so much the street but the whole area which is making a visit worthwhile. The street was one of the first modern boulevard-like street in China. It dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The old buildings have all been refurbished now with a lot of new and partly quite pricy shops. The street as such... More

I went to Beijing on business in May and September 2016. The Qianmen Main Street Mall (Qianmen Da Jie) is on the other side of Tiananmen Square away from the Forbidden City. It has many shops and restaurants. If you have enough time during your visit to Beijing I would include it. But personally I like other Beijing shopping areas... More
