Owner description: This busy shopping street, restored to its original style, sells almost anything China can offer in antiques, ancient coins, Chinese paintings, jade and traditional folk clothing.

This reconstructed "old" street is a tourists' delight.
It has some brand name shops and other shops which sell fake (yet beautiful) goods.
There's a small train that moves on a rail in the middle of the street.
If you're here for the shopping, come during the day. Otherwise, visit the street at night, as it is beautifully alluminated.

I've been to Liulichang Street twice. The first time, I was amazed at the beautiful, 500 year old carved marble pedestrian bridge over the road. I climbed it and took photos, then went for tea in a tea house looking at it. When I went back more recently, I was excited to show it to a travelling companion. We came to the area, and found the Disney version of China, and no bridge.
Did I just imagine it? I doubt I'd go back, as that bridge was what made this street stand out from the hundreds of other souvenier knock off kiosks around.

Nowdays, there are not so many people in Liulichang Street. If you want to collect some ancient chinese coins and antiques, this is a very good place to visit.

Liulichang Street is heaven for browsers of antiques and Chinese collectables.There are more original pieces to be found than people might think. It's also the location of a small studio for one of the best inside snuff bottle painters in the world. Painter Xu Bu has a small area at the front of one of the shops and also sells works by his father Xu PengQi. Both are among the world's best and knock the usual tourist stuff into the background. Xu Bu's works are now in the private collections of people such as HM Queen Elizabeth II, Presidents Clinton and Obama and many others.

We had a nice time walking through all the shops. There are definitely some antiques but you have to know how to find them. Here is a good website to find it. The kids need to be carefull for the glass and antiques but it is safe for them to stay outside. They can even modify the puppets so you can use them for very cheap!
