Making the Most of Your Time in Southern Districts: Chongwen and Xuanwu


Making the Most of Your Time

The southern districts of Beijing have some great attractions beyond the major players, like the Temple of Heaven.

Liulichang is renowned for paintings and Chinese art supplies; it's worth spending a few hours browsing here. The Source of Law Temple and the Niujie Mosque are laid-back, interesting temples; a trip to one makes visiting the other quite easy, as they are very close together. Visiting the reconstructed Ming Dynasty City Wall Ruins makes for a pleasant stroll before dinner.
