Beijing Road Is One Of The Most Prosperous Commercial Pedestrian Streets In Guangzhou
For more than two thousand years, the status of its central city and central business district has not changed.
Not only has it created a rare wonder in the history of urban construction at home and abroad, it has also created Guangzhou’s splendid historical culture and commercial civilization. On this street, which symbolizes the commercial center of Guangzhou and runs north-south, rows of shops and crowds of people seem to maintain vigorous vitality forever.
After upgrading, Beijing Road Pedestrian Street not only has wider roads and flatter ground, the walking length has also been extended from 1.1 kilometers to 3.5 kilometers. The upgraded Beijing Road not only retains the coherent Republican-style and Lingnan style, but also incorporates modern technology elements such as a large 8K naked eye 3D curved LED screen, dazzling lighting night view, robot restaurant, and smart trash can.
There are many shops, shopping malls, restaurants, and cafes on both sides of the pedestrian street. Of course, you can also taste many local specialty snacks in Guangzhou.
On Beijing Road, there are large and medium-sized department stores such as Xindaxin, Department Store, Taibai Shopping Mall, and countless restaurants and specialty shops. It is a street frequented by Guangzhou residents.
