Shiguang Shopping Street

Shinguang Shopping Street is located in Ginkgo Avenue of Yuanmingyuan Park. With light and shadow, the 2,200-square-meter space reproduces original scene of the market 100 years ago.

It is known that in the history, there were two shopping streets, Tongleyuan Shopping Street and Hanjingtang Shopping Street. At that time, the merchants and tourists were all played by maids or eunuchs in the imperial palace, in order to let the emperors of Qing Dynasty feel the folk customs and market culture. 

Shiguang Shopping Street also provides tourists with a rich taste experience. They can not only eat Zha Jiang noodles, Beijing yogurt, syrup of plum, Arctic Ocean and other Beijing food, but also go to the "Western Fantasy" cafe, order a cup of coffee, and quietly feel the splendor and mystery of the palace.

Address: Yuanmingyuan Park, Haidian District, Beijing

Heping Guoju

In many people's minds, Beijing has narrow alleyways, children running and playing, old men playing chess, as well as grocery stores selling cakes and fruit... These are unforgettable childhood moments.

Occupying an area of 2,400 square meters, Heping Guoju recreates the life scene of Beijing half a century ago, providing visitors with an immersive experience space to recall old Beijing.

On the second basement of Wangfujing Department Store, a real and vivid old Beijing begins to shown in front of our eyes - the green train of "Beijing Station", the place to repair shoes in the Xicheng District, the state-run grain and oil store that "supplies by ticket", the video hall with white lights and red letters... A small alley has aroused the collective memories of tourists.
