Situated south of Qianmen Street Beijing, Dashanlan has been the most famous and popular market for many kinds of antiques since 1644 Qing Dynasty.

Nowadays, the Dashanlan Area is one of Beijing’s major protected area because of its great historical and cultural value. It is representative for Beijing’s traditions and culture. You will be able to find many antiques and see many of Beijing’s oldest Hutongs.
