Shopping

As the capital city of the Five Dynasties of China, Beijing has a history that is thousands of years old. Many skillful craftsmen settled in the area long ago, and passed down their skills from one generation to the other. This is evident in the traditional handicrafts in many businesses and markets.  Cloisonne, Ivory Carving, Jade and Lacquer are known as the four best traditional handiworks of Beijing. In addition, Curios, Silk, Pearls, Snuff Bottles with Pictures Inside, and Artificial Flowers are also worth buying and well liked by tourists. Candied Fruits and confectionaries of all kinds will make your mouth water, and are wonderful presents for friends.
