Introduction of Beijing Liulichang
Beijing Liulichang, which is only 750 meters long, is located south of Hepingmen (Peace) Gate within walking distance of the Hepingmen Quanjude Peking Duck Restaurant. In Ming and Qing times, Liulichang was a favorite haunt for scholars, painters and calligraphers that gathered there to write, compile and purchase books, as well as to paint and compose poetry.
Now it is a bustling commercial district southwest of Tiananmen square that caters mainly to foreign tourists. Liulichang sells everything from the kitsch to the truly collectable. The most common include name chops, scroll paintings, antiques, jade, tea and silk. There are also shops for paper, book binding and the carving of stone tablets.
The most famous of these is Rongbaozhai (Studio of Glorious Treasures), which has a history of over 200 years. The street is a mixture of state-run and privately owned shops and you should definitely bargain before making purchases. If you're looking for souvenir gifts for your friends and family, this is definitely the place to go.
