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.

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

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.
