Beijing Street is a very commercial pedestrian street in the centre of Guangzhou. It used to be a road that ran through the old city from south to north. In fact, you can see through a transparent panel in the ground that shows the several excavations and the strata of different roads from different times in history. At the end of the street, there are the foundations of the old door and a model of how Guangzhou was centuries ago (when this was the main street). It's very interesting to wander around here, not only because of the amount of shops, restaurants and services, but because it will help us better understand the city's current layout.
This street full of crowds and neon lights is the commercial street that is of most importance in Guangzhou and in all the south of continental China. It´s almost a kilometer and a half of street with over 300 establishments that make it one of the most prosperous places in all of China. It has a history of over a century ago and is one of the places that you cannot miss (especially at night) if you come to this city. It´s also known by its traditional name: Xiguan
Liu Rong Street is located near several temples and also near Gongyuanqian station. These souvenirs are not typical of Guangzhou or China. Instead, they are typical of Buddhist mood items (bracelets, reproductions of temples and pagodas in the area, pumpkins, charms, stamps ...). This is because Liu Rong street is very close to the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees, one of the most famous and beautiful temples in the city.
