To feel and experience a little bit of historical China and explore a part of Beijing that is full of folklore and Chinese culture, than you must visit Liulichang Street in Xuanwu District, juts south of the Peace Gate. This street is full artifacts, souvenirs, artworks, and paintings that date back to the Ming and Qing dynasty.

The whole street is a little piece if ancient history which is quite worth visiting.
