Song Dynasty Imperial Street
The Song Dynasty Imperial Street has been renamed Zhongshanlu Beiduan, but still leads to the Palace of the Northern Song dynasty (960-1127AD). The road that stretches 400 meters (1,310ft) is lined with snack bars that offer local delicacies and shops that sell antiques, embroidered items and silks among others.
In the northern part of the street, visitors will find ‘Gonglu’ which is a modern day imitation of one of the best restaurants of the Northern Song dynasty. The restaurant comprises 5 small pavilions that are interconnected. In this unique environment you can savor imperial dishes and also learn about the customs of the period.
