Dongzhimen (东直门 lit. “East Straight Gate”) once a gate in the old Beijing city fortifications, is now a vibrant commercial center and a transportation node in Beijing.
West of Dongzhimen is Guijie (簋街), or “Food vessel street”.
The street stretches for over one kilometer, and 90% of the commercial shops in the street house more than 150 eateries.
