Jìng’ān has some remarkably well-preserved lǐlòng (alleyways). The gentrified Bubbling Well Road Apartments are a great place to start exploration, and architecture buffs should also seek out the handful of lanes off Yuyuan Rd in the west of the district, particularly those at Nos 395 and 361, near the intersection with West Beijing Rd.
