The first group of historic and cultural neighborhoods in China has been released by the State Urban Environment Commission and Administration of Cultural Heritage, which selected 30 neighborhoods in 26 cities.

  Beijing is the biggest "winner", with 3 neighborhoods on the list: the Imperial City, Dashilar and Dongsi. However, famous Beijing tourist spots Shichahai and Nanluoguxiang failed to make the cut, because the commercial flavor is too strong for these two traditional residential areas.
