However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Liulichang Street was one time a prosperous cultural center during the Ming and Qing dynasties in 1368 where painters, scholars and calligraphers gathered to buy materials, compose poetry, write books, exchange ideas and paint pictures. In the modern age, this street is located in downtown Beijing by the Peace Gate and large scale renovations completed in 1984, have transformed the street into a historic market that resembles Chinese village.
