Various attractions in Beijing will provide plenty of entertainment over Spring Festival, Yang Feiyue reports. 

Ten routes, offering an array of experiences, were launched in Beijing in late January to spice things up for residents and visitors during Spring Festival. With trans-provincial travel affected due to COVID-19, Beijing residents can, instead, sample the delights of their city during the holiday.

The routes were launched by the Beijing Bureau of Culture and Tourism and cover hot attractions chosen by online users featuring the capital's rich leisure, fashion and shopping resources, as well as elements pertaining to the upcoming Winter Olympics.

Past meets present

Many time-honored brands have set up shop on Qianmen Street on the capital's Central Axis, including the Peking roast duck restaurant chain Quanjude and Beijing's famous Muslim beef producer Yueshengzhai. One can also find creative culture products featuring Palace Museum elements and other folk art on the pedestrian street, which is lined with buildings in the style of the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It's an ideal place to take a selfie against the wintery backdrop.

Beijing Fun is a site that shouldn't be missed on Qianmen Street. The new cultural landmark allows visitors to enjoy reading in the art space of the Page One bookstore that is adorned with a variety of cultural and creative products, chat with friends over coffee at Starbucks, or experience gourmet food at one of many popular restaurants in the area.

About 300 meters east of Qianmen Street, the bustling business landscape gives way to bridges, flowing water of a small river and other scenes reminiscent of "water towns in the south of the country" in the Sanlihe area. Visitors can also find music, stand-up comedy and magic performances, as well as historical architecture, in the area.
