Updated:2008-06-05 08:48 | Source:

  Chinese name: 前门大街(qián mén dà jiē)

  Qianmen Dajie is one of the oldest and most famous commercial streets with a 500 year old history. As an ancient street in Beijing, it is an assembly place of time honored shops, including Quanjude Roast Duck Restaurant and Du Yi Chu Shao Mai. Now, this street is under reconstruction. It is predicted that the whole project will be finished at the end of this year. But don't be disappointed: most of the time honored shops will be back in this street by then. Visitors will also be surprised to find that the street will be re-built as it was in the 1920s, when it was extremely prosperous. Furthermore, trolley cars will re-appear in the street, after being absent for 40 years. Visitors can get on the car and view the street for free.
