We actually decided to walk from Tienemenem Square / Forbidden City to the Silk Market. I know...it's ambitious...but my husband and I get our only exercise while on vacation and walking is a great way to see the details of a city. Anyway, we accidentally stumbled upon Wangfujing Street and what luck! This place was SUPER fun. My husband ate... More

It's a whole package with shopping, dining and entertainment. It's a great place to spend some hours, in all seasons and all times of the day. Beautiful at night, its packed with tourists even in the frigid winter months. From the unique food street offering scorpions and ants to halal restaurants to Peking Duck, all could be found in here... More

Great spot for shopping and to take some pictures at night time (loads of lights - Chinese style). Next by, you will find a street market with scorpions, insects and etc. Be aware of the hours as they normally close everything really early.

My wife and I spent part of our last day walking Wangfujing Street and had a great time. Got some souvenirs, had some street food and did some other local shopping. It was a really nice experience and it was easy to get to from the Beijing subway.

There was this one little street where you can find all kind of exotic food such as SCORPIONS, STARFISHS, SNAKES, SEA HORSES and more and all kind of different souvenir shops. This place was AMAZING! You don't have to try anything (although we tried some really good stuff). Just go and enjoy! We had a blast! We came back 3... More

I was in Beijing for a business trip and had a couple of hours to kill after office. One of the place that I visited is this shopping street since I heard my friends mentioned this place couple of times. It has everything! From unique souvenirs, traditional candies, until some exotic food if you dare to try! Do shop around... More

If you are looking for Western labels or similar asian fashion houses and stores then this is the place for you. Prices are on par with what you will pay in North America; if you are looking for bargains or cheap,knock offs then... More

Was a great insight into shopping in China- the night market and areas on this st cater for lots of budgets. Prices are reasonable and are in line with prices in Europe, not much cheaper, if at all in the department stores found all over the world like Zara, forever 21. I would recommend Xidan for a better experience and... More
