The Silk Road Sights

Culture Street (Wénhuà Jiē)

Updated 03/05/2013

Fodor's Review

Just inside the city wall, this lively but very touristy pedestrian street is lined with houses that have been rebuilt in traditional Ming style. Shops sell a wide variety of wares, including charming calligraphy and watercolors. If you're coming from South Gate, halfway down the first block you'll find Guanzhong Academy, built in 1609. Take a peek through the gates, as entrance is forbidden. Continue east along the city wall to reach the Forest of Stone Tablets.
