Dongmen Commercial Street

Dongmen (or "East Gate", simplified Chinese: 东门; traditional Chinese: 東門; pinyin: dōngmén) is a major shopping area within the Luohu district of Shenzhen.

Contents

Name

One of the oldest parts of Shenzhen, the Dongmen area was established about 300 years ago, leading it to be alternatively known as "Laojie" (or "Old Street").

Location

Dongmen is accessible from exits to the metro station Laojie Station and follow Exit A, lies just north of Shennan Dong Road. "Dongmen" usually refers to more than just "Dongmen Road", encompassing the entire series of connecting commercial streets. These streets were closed off to automobile traffic in 1999.

Shopping

The variety of shopping in Dongmen is wider than Luohu Commercial City[1], but has a similar focus on Chinese-made and counterfeit goods. Beauty parlor services are very popular in Dongmen and the department store Maoye has locations on both ends of the road. Despite being limited to pedestrian traffic, Dongmen can become very crowded on nights, weekends, and holidays, giving it a similar feel to Nanjing Road in Shanghai.
