Qianmen Street and Dashilan

Many tourists will visit Qianmen Street and Dashilan when they come to Beijing. After all, there are century-old shops, and the surrounding buildings are also antique, fully reflecting the style of the ancient capital. People can find the memory of ancient Beijing.

Qianmen Street was formed in 1436, located in the ancient city of Beijing's main gate - Zhengyang gate outside, is the Ming and Qing dynasties emperors temple of heaven worship, the only way to go before farming altar, Qianlong emperor has poetry cloud, "Li Li and wind tune jade law, color flag flower Sheng Yao Tianjie", so Qianmen Street is also known as the royal road Tianjie. With hundreds of years of historical accumulation, Qianmen Street has become a characteristic historic district with profound accumulation of architectural culture, commercial culture, guild culture, pear garden culture and folk culture.

In the middle of the Ming Dynasty, due to the development of commerce, Qianmen Street appeared on both sides of the fresh fish mouth, pig (pearl) port, coal port, food stores and other markets and streets, Qianmen street became a commercial street. Qianmen street's long history, has created many finalists, such as the great north photo studio, old zhengxing restaurant, shengxifu hat shop, six sauce and pickle shop habitat, tongrentang drugstore, employees silk shop, changchun hall pharmacy, inline shoe store, zhangyiyuan tea, and month spiced tradition shops, all of a bread shop the old name, respectively on both sides of qianmen street.

Since 2005, Qianmen Street renovation. The restored Qianmen Street has restored the architectural style of the 1920s and 1930s to represent the main body of the last century, reproducing the ancient simplicity and elegant charm of the traditional architectural culture of old Beijing. 76% of the buildings on both sides of the street were built in their original state and 24% were organically renovated. The street is 840 meters long, and the iconic Wupai Lou and Baishi Royal Road have been restored, and the trolley cars have been recreated as Qianmen. Beijing elements are used in urban furniture, lighting and sketch design, such as birdcage style, rattle-type street lamps, stone drum shape, urn shape flower bowls, etc. The lines are in harmony with the historical buildings on both sides, becoming a beautiful scenery line of "humanistic Beijing".

On September 28, 2009, the eve of the 60th birthday of the People's Republic of China, Qianmen Street realized the full opening, 103 years of merchants opened for business, 79% of the Chinese national brands, 21% of the international well-known brands, including 21 time-honored merchants. Qianmen Street has realized the goal of "rejuvenating with the appearance of the ancient capital", and the ancient Qianmen Street has gradually entered the most prosperous historical new period.

In 2008, the trolley returned to Qianmen Street. Beijing's trams, commonly known as "Dang cars", used to be a historical memory in the landscape of the ancient capital. The trolley is called a "trolley" because it has a brass bell on it that makes a "clang" sound. The trolley was around from 1921 until 1956.

The original trolley was a large compartment with a brown lower body and a yellow upper body. How does it go? It depends on two things: one is on two parallel tracks in the road, which, unlike the tracks on the railway, are recessed into the ground. The wheels under the trolley are going to slide in this track. The second is powered by the electric bracket on the roof, which is connected with the air wire to obtain power. It was called the "top braid" because it looked like a little pigtail on a little girl's head. When the car started, it was smooth but wobbly. When a driver steps on a pedal at the foot of a pedestrian or vehicle, the bell makes a jingle sound.

Today's "trolley" has been restored to the structure of the old trolley. It can run 16km without load on a single charge, and the cycle of charge and discharge can reach more than 50,000 times. Meanwhile, it has said goodbye to the long "braids" of the car, and no longer needs to carry poles and wires.

The cars' names are Qianmen No. 1 and Qianmen No. 2. It takes less than 10 minutes each way on the 840 meter track. After the operation, Wupai Lou and Zhushikou stations will be set up. At the Yueliang Bay, two "eight" shaped tracks will turn east and west respectively. They are specially used for maintenance, and the tracks are fixed by resin technology. The trolley runs from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the fare is 50 yuan one way.
