Next to Tian'anmen and Qianmen, Xijiaominxiang is located in the southern part of Xicheng District. Winding about 1,000 meters long and 10 meters wide, Xijiaominxiang is larger than the average hutong and has a unique history.

Xijiaominxiang was first built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), but became prominent about 100 years ago when several domestic and overseas banks chose to open in that location, making it the city’s original financial street. Visitors can still see the architecture of old banks there, including the former sites of the Central Bank, China Agriculture and Industry Bank and Mainland Bank.

Travel tips:

Surrounding attractions: Tian'anmen Square, Qianmen Street, China Numismatic Museum

Getting there: Bus 9, 44, 67, 301, 608, 673, 901 to Qianmenxi;
