With the historic shopping street of Dashilar providing a focus, and the many hostels in the nearby hútòng making it Běijīng’s backpacker central, this neighbourhood southwest of Tiān’ānmén Sq is handy for the major sights and has plenty of character. Formerly known as Xuanwu district, it’s also home to the best acrobatics and opera shows in town.
