Food street and shopping

There's souvenirs, food and also the weird food snack corner here. Wide and clean streets. Nothing special in terms of shopping but worth visiting.

A friend and I visited Wangfujing Street last night. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any of the crazy snack stall. We guessed they were closed due to the stupid military parade. No restaurants were open either. The street itself is full of malls and slightly over-priced souvenir shops. There wasn't anything mind-blowing here. Just an over-commercialised street catering to out-of-town shoppers... More

Impossible not to be fascinated by the many stalls on Wangfujing Main Street, Dongcheng District in Beijing. Red lanterns signifying the place and once there you can try an incredible number and diversity of Chinese food: from soups to meat kebabs, noodles from the various types of rice, vegetables and even insects, for the truly brave. .. In any case... More

Ok so it's touristy and full of commercialism but for what it is, I think it does it very well. I absolutely love the huge bookstore on it as well. It has a good selection of books for learning chinese and if you are missing novels in English , it has many of those too.

We arrived here about 9.30pm on a Monday evening and the whole market was on the verge of closing. We had a short half an hour wander, took some pictures of the weird insects on sticks but not brave enough to try eating them!

This is a great place to visit in Beijing - not only are there great shops and restaurants but there is also a fab food market which is full of interesting snacks and tourist type shops. The snacks vary from fruit and kebabs to seahorses and scorpions - something to really see while in Beijing! This is a great place... More

Interesting shopping street. This is where you can find the weird dishes that you've heard about: scorpions, sea horse, etc. I honestly came here just to see and try those :). Other than that, many other things also sold here which are good for gifts. Prices are also reasonable but make sure you research the 'normal' price before you come... More

It is a drab shopping street by day, and if you're coming from any place with an access to a mall with branded shops or to internet shopping then to me it seems rather unproductive to spend the day here. But at night once the stores close the street takes on a lively atmosphere. There is a section which has... More
