I am going to Beijing on Nov 2018 What street/area in Nanluoguixang can I shop for CHEONGSAM & QIPAO chinese traditional dresses?? I don't want to walk all over the place. I prefer nicer streets and NOT the "run-down/ dirty" streets THANKS

There are lots of people here - but that’s China! This place is lovely outdoorsy clean place, just crowded. Nice good quality stuff - in silver, paper, silk. Seemed like a fixed price place. Walk around and enjoy the vibe.

Hutong is the local folks residence. There are still some Hutongs near Nanluoguxiang, you may explore by biking or rik-shaw. The subway station is right next to the attraction. It’s not only a tourist favorite, it’s also a popular hangout spot for local young people....More
