3) Qianmen Street 前门大街
Qianmen Street is located to the south of Tiananmen Square. Beijing’s original commercial center for 600 years ago; today, it largely deals in Chinese traditional products. With urban development under the Ming and Qing dynasties, Qianmen Street was enlarged by a number of markets, halls and evolved into a major shopping and entertainment-based commercial district. Quanjude, Pianyifang, Ruifuxiang, Tong Ren Tang, Dongyichu established shops which became what is now a century-old cultural circle.
After a renovation in 2008, the stores are now lined up side by side in the style of the Hutong. This is a good place for nice souvenirs, such as stone or jade stamps carved with your name. The Lao She Teahouse is located to the west of Qianmen Street, and is a good place to sample Chinese teas, read or watch a traditional show.
Location: Stretching from Zhengyang Gate in the north to Tiantan Road in the south
Transportation: Take buses 17, 22 and 120 or subway line 2 and get off at Qainmen Stop

4) Xiushui Street 秀水街
Xiushui Street has a silk market (open 9am to 9pm) replete with some of the finest silk products, as well as an amazing array of name-brand clothes and bags, such as Reebok, Adidas and Gucci. However, very few of these top labels are the real thing despite their uncanny resemblance. This is probably why serious shoppers usually avoid this market, but there are still a lot of interesting things to see and to do here. The fun of the place may not come from searching for the perfect bag or best shirt, but it comes from the haggling. Haggling may yield a feeling of accomplishment when you purchase an item at maybe 30 percent of the original price. “No price is fixed” is the golden rule here. The more you haggle, the better price you may get. Xiushui Street is the one of the few places in Beijing where foreigners can purchase clothes and shoes in large sizes.
Location: Chaoyang District
