Lots to see in this shopping district. You can easily spend your whole day there. The higher end stores have set prices, but many of the smaller shops on the side streets give you the chance to haggle out the price and quantity; you just have to be persistent and prepared to walk away. Part of the fun is seeing... More

Go for the sights, sounds and atmosphere and if you don't have time to visit many places. The prices are high and the quality of food and drinks isn't too great. But everything is compacted into a tiny street so it's a real time saver.

Great place to go around on a weekend. 2 new malls around the block. Lots of new restos to choose from. Though the branded items are more expensive compared to other cities like hong kong and singapore. Dont get fooled with vendors selling expensive silk and jade items. Some are real others are fake.

Is a good place to do some shopping! You should walk to the street of food, is a good experience to see all types of animals on the BBQ, this street is near to the Apple store if you're walking you'll see recognized for all the lights and people!

We liked Night Market so much we went twice. My kids, aged 10 and 12, loved the strange food. They also loved testing their negotiating skills. It's a sensory festival, worth a visit.

One of the highlights, this is the main shopping street with the added bonus of the food market. You name it you will find it fried or boiled and served in bowls or on sticks from the multitude of colourful stalls. There is also seated cafes where you can try more normal fare. Its all mouth wateringly fantastic, apart perhaps... More

Our walk down this street of a night time when the food market was open was amazing. I have never before seen such foods available to be eaten and while I wasn't game enough to try it was an experience none the less. We went with our tour guide from On The Go tours and were amazed at what was... More

We visited the Insect Street in ( Perpendicular to the main Wangfujing Street) and it was a very unique experience for us . One can get to get to see snakes, lizards,spiders etc ready to eat. I haven't seen many people eating it though. Go early evening , say 5' ish to avoid the crowd.
