During the 4 and half days of stay in Beijing, we went to this area at least three times. It's a nice area to walk around in the late afternoon and earlying evenings. The main street is very clean, and many old stores on the side street. some have been around for several hundreds years. There's a snack street across from the old street is a nice place to get some awesome food. Very clean and inexpensive, and yummy too! The Beijing Duck restaurant is on the main street, and the old tea shop, silk store, and chinese medicin store are all on the old street ... very cool. Highly recommended.

The Qianmen pedestrian street is good for an evening stroll especially after a visit to the Forbidden City nearby. The restored grand old buildings are tastefully lighted up at night and there are many local eateries here to suit everyone's budget. Much prefer this area than the more well known Wangfujing. If you want to try the famous Quanjude roast duck, their original restuarant is here with a faster take-away shop next door.

This street is rebuilt recently before the Olympic Games. It has a pedestrian zone and on the buildings you will find descriptions of the original buildings in the past. It has a nice tram running through it. Unfortunately it also has all the modern shops like Zara, H&M etc.

Qianmen street has undergone some major work to become pedestrianised and quite a tourist attraction. There is a tram running from one end to the other. Although this is a perfectly walkable distance! The buildings have been restored well and there is a mixture of high street global names e.g. Adidas, Zara etc and Chinese souvenir shops.
After a walk around Tian'anmen square, we quite enjoyed strolling down this street, along with the various other streets nearby.

Basically this place is a market, traditional and modern. The main street filled with international brands housed in a unique chinese traditional building.

There's also street foods and local restaurants. It's a good place to try beijing's local food.
This place is within the area of tiananmen square and forbidden city.
