Neighborhood: Qian Men

Da Zha Lan (pronounced Da Sha Lanr by Beijing Locals) is one of the few remnants of the city's original system of hutongs, narrow alleys and lanes of either residential or commercial purpose. This narrow Qing Dynasty(1644-1911) street, which resembles a Western city's China town, plays host to a clutch of Beijing's most famous shops and traditional industries: Tong Ren Tang Traditional Chinese Medicine Shop, Zhang Yi Yuan Tea Shop, and the Rui Fu Xiang Silk Shop. There are also trinket shops, back-street cinemas, leather and fur stores and a branch of Tianjin's famous Gou Bu Li fast food restaurant.
