Beijing Financial Street

The Beijing Financial Street (Hanyu Pinyin: Beijing Jinrong Jie) lies in the western part of the 2nd Ring Road, in a nearly vertical band just east of Fuxingmen.


A lot of the nation's banks have their Beijing offices or even headquarters here. Noticeably absent are the People's Bank of China (just further east) and the Bank of China (at Xidan) as well as China Merchants Bank (at Naoshikou crossing).


The Financial Street runs from Yuetan South Bridge toward Fuxingmen. It is characterised by many skyscrapers.
