A very nice small old street with 2 types of small shops . Antique shops and artist tools , mainly special hand made painting brushes of all sizes and types . Very unique. Also paintings galleries. Very interesting . Bargaining common practice here.

Liulichang Street Is very pretty and peaceful street. Close to Tian'anmen Square . You will enjoy the walk and if you like you can buy art or antique from one of the many shops.

We really enjoyed a stroll down this street. We didn't buy anything, but it was nice to get away from the crowds and walk down a peaceful street with very interesting old architecture.

this once beautiful old street has been totally modified to recreate a perfect show-off for tourists and has lost most, if not all, of its ancient and authentic “charme”.

All the shops here sell goods related to chinese calligraphy, ink, paper, brushes, chinese books. There are some who sell snuff boxes and draw caricature. I was slightly disappointed as they did not look very inviting to me, I was expecting a very vibrant street....More
