Came across this on an evening walk. One end of the artsy street is a block away from the JW Marriott Beijing Central Hotel. Lots of nice paintings are offered for sale, many seem to be very reasonably priced.

A quaint street which was part of our self guided walk through old Beijing. It has lots of painting and calligraphy stores. You can also have Chinese stone stamps made here. Keep on walking and you’ll walk through a Hutong area to see how locals live. Worth a stroll!

Liulichang Street has been around for 300 hundred years or more in Beijing,used to be for literati and the rich and noble class. But now visitors and local people can still go there and search for old scripts, writings and calligraphy. I would not recommend people to buy äntiques" there, unless you really can tell authentic from fake ones!

Went for a walk in Beijing. Found this street and walked its length. Amazing shops, great prices, friendly proprietors. Art supplies, musical instruments, original art pieces, and jade carvings easily found on this street. Tourist friendly.

A quiet street, great for a stroll and avoiding the crowded, touristy areas. You can find 文房四宝 (Four Treasures of the Study) here. They are mainly referring to brush, ink, paper and inkstone.

It is also near to DaShiLan so you can add this place to your itinerary (LiuLiChang -> DaShiLan -> QianMen DaJie) as it doesn’t take much time to visit (~1 hour).

This is a pretty little street split in two by a major road. You can get to both sides by a foot bridge. It appears to go in to neighborhoods on each side. Fun area to explore and shop.

When it came to negotiating, they all start high. I found that they cringe when you try to pin them at 25% of their initial price (start even lower) and will let you walk away but they will all settle for a third of the original offer. Their lowest possible final price is probably somewhere in between. I found this to be the case with 4 different vendors I bought from and walked away from 2.

Btw, if you want calligraphy items. I lost count of the amount of shops that offered brushes, inks, and paper. Plenty of other items in the shops too.

Our accommodation was near here so we were required to walk through it everyday. It was a really nice looking street, grab some nice street food every now and then or toffee covered fruit on a stick. Worth a look.

I took the subway there and spend several hours walking the street and visiting the museums in it. It was such a peaceful and tranquil area particularly compared to the noisy streets of Beijing. I did not buy anything, just stopped with my eyes and senses. Well worthy a trip and a few hours

Loved this place.

Easy to walk around and shop till you drop.

Lots of fun browsing the wide variety of shops. There is a great little side street for street food.

Had a lot of fun and found some cool gifts.

Highly recommend this area to tourists.
