Antiques Street 琉璃厂文化街(Liulichang)
 

The Liulichang Street of Chinese Culture is a 750 meter long collection of all kinds of Calligraphy, art, antiques and paintings that China has to offer. The street is a hubbub of China's culture and one is totally taken in by the aura surrounding it. Located south of the Peace gate in Beijing the street is a favorite with tourists.



The China Bookstore, Rongbaozhai, and Jiguge are the most famous antique stores in Liulichang. Along the street, peddlers hawk snacks, groceries, toys and copper coins, all kind of small commodities. Merchants race to their doors with a welcoming "hello, hello" for all their customers, but they all rack their brains to attract foreigners' attention. Some offer free seal-carving services and they even can find a perfect Chinese name for you if you like.


Transport: Subway: arrive at Hepingmen Station; Bus No. 6, 14, 15, 25, 50, 53, 57, 102 and 105.

Location: South Xinhua Street, Hepingmenwai, Xuanwu District, Beijing. 北京市宣武区和平门外南新华街
