Three Stone Kite
Head to any Chinese park on a sunny afternoon or weekend and look up: flitting through the sky, carried by the winds, are dozens of colorful kites. These are being flown by pint-size kids, laughing couples hand-in-hand, and smiling grandparents showing their prowess off to the next generation. Kites are delightfully old school, and a hand-made kite a wonderfully retro Beijing souvenir. For the best, head to Three Stone Kites, located within walking distance from the Forbidden City. This cheerful shop is chockablock with colorful kites—birds, fish, butterflies, and dragons, with frames made of bamboo. The Liu family has been making kites by hand for three generations and what’s for sale here are works of art.
