Marina Wang's experience in Beijing
Across the way from #Tiananmen Square is Qianmen Dashilan, a 600 year old commercial neighborhood featuring traditional #Chinese shops. Here, you’ll find quality stores—some of which have been around for 200 years—selling #silks, Old #Beijing #shoes, or #tea. There’s also plenty of stores selling local Beijing snacks, and some of the most renowned flagship restaurants such as Quanjude Peking duck also started off here. There’s also statues of Old Beijingers going about their daily activities like drying tea leaves, grinding spices, or serving dumplings, so it’s a fun place to pose in some photos and be acquainted with traditional Beijing life. #vintage #clothes #souvenirs #souvenirs #gifts
