We went there after a heavy rain. There seemed to be the ink smell in the air. They have lots of stuff in the shops. Artists or business men, they were very interesting. We were not sure about the worth of things, but we had...More

When we were here, the street seemed rather deserted. It was a hot sunny afternoon and which seem like a very tiring walk. There was no shades to walk in. We quickly left after walking part of the street as it wasnt something that we...More

Every other shop is selling brush art or calligraphy, or their related art supplies. It is good for anyone looking such things, but I was not so it was very much a meh~ experience for me.

Visited Liulichang street on a whim, spent the entire day walking in and around the area (could've been done in 2 hours with ease). Great Chinese book store in the main courtyard, very friendly area, some hard selling shopkeepers, but willing to negotiate prices. Wonderful...More

This is the place one can find traditional rice paper, Chinese ink brushes, Chinese plantings, calligraphies, and peace of mind. We had a name seal made by the artist on the spot as a birthday gift.

This is a nice market street. There is food and many small shops. The people watching is good here and it leads to another market street.

It's quite a touristic spot but the building are very pretty and stereotypical Chinese, so you will get some nice, colourful pictures. Lots of tiny shops selling everything from arts to handicraft.

Nice alley filled with shophouses promoting Chinese paintings, antiques and handicrafts. The only discomfort is to avoid the cars/bikes that were moving into the alley. Would have been better if they made the walkways vehicle free. The staff in the shops were courteous and not...More

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...More

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...More
