Qianmen Street has been a commercial area for centuries, overflowing with many traditional shops including Chinese medicine shops, silk shops, tea shops, and also some Chinese snack shops, such as Duyichu. Duyichu is famous for its steamed "shaomai", which are wrappers filled with meat-flavored sticky rice. Beyond the traditional, the Qianmen Street area has some of the largest department stores in Beijing, including Xinxin Clothing Store, the largest clothing store in Beijing. Qianmen offers a good range of shopping options such as the Dazhalan No.1 and No.2 Department Stores, as well as the Ladies' Goods Store and the Children's Goods Stores. Before you leave the Qianmen area, be sure to enjoy the show at the Laoshe Teahouse, inspired by the novel Teahouse, by the author Laoshe.
