Visit by subway Line 8 Scichahai station exit c. A very pretty place to wander around once you dodge the rickshaw drivers who couldn't believe we wanted to walk! One even jokingly tried to stomp on my foot so we would be forced to take...More

Very touristic, but still worth a visit. Very crowded, but equipped with nice shops and bars and restaurants. Close to some of the nice hutongs.
