Yandai (smoking pipe) Xiejie (byway) is one of the oldest hutongs in Beijing. It is recorded that there were many smoking pipe stores on the street in the Qing Dynasty. Wendy told me that some people say that the street looks like a smoking pipe. The street is full of really cool stores with different quaint articles, ranging from pottery, decorations, even a shop selling different kinds of matchboxes!.
lots of chairman Mao badges , quotes and memorabilia. and oh. the I love Beijing t shirts
