I went to this place in the afternoon and it was really got (summer). This place provides you the ancient stores selling traditional goods, like painting, statues, and traditional jewelries. Just prepare 1 hour visiting this place.

If you want to get a feeling for her old Chinese heritage, this is a place to go. A lot of unique shops and museums. We can plan on spending a whole day here.

Great local restaurants and street food vendors with a big variety of different shops as well. I have visited the Culture street on a holiday so no surprise it was crazy crowded. Even if you aren't planning to buy anything there, it worth a visit.

This area is filled with shops and stalls carrying all kinds of new and old goods, food stands, artists stands. You can find most anything here, be prepared to dicker on price.

I have nothing good to say about this place. Each shop sells exactly the same as the next one. You would think they had the initiative to create a fridge magnet for Tianjin, but, no, they sell fridge magnets for Beijing.....what can I say!!!
