this once beautiful old street has been totally modified to recreate a perfect show-off for tourists and has lost most, if not all, of its ancient and authentic “charme”.

Was there in Dec 2014 accidentally after discovering this tiny alley way near the street. You can find tons of restaurants and shops there. Very old Beijing style. Try to avoid the rickshaw rides though, they are a rip off.
