If you enjoy exotic foods, crazy street performances, and haggling with people over trinkets and fake watches than this is for you. All joking aside, the street is full of energy and excitement starting in the early evening and lasting late into the night. There are so many crazy things to eat - I'll let the reader decide which ones... More

What a hoot! There is nothing that can compare with the colors, the food, the smells and the sheer fun of Wangfujing Street. I loved the fun and opportunity here - an opportunity to be out on your own, away from your guide and in contact with all kinds of people.

This street is amazing atmosphere with foods. I see many tourists enjoy local foods that they have ordered (yogurt is a must) it's quite nice to see all vendors cook foods. I have a great chance to try local foods and cheap prices. I would not prefer bugs or weird foods but it's amaze to see alive scorpions or starfish... More

A small street off the beautiful pedestrian mall area that has very unusual offerings of food -flying squirrel, scorpians (still alive as are most insects), crickets, sea horses, starfish etc. All grilled to order. Had to leave the area-smell is "different" to say the least. Street gets stranger as you wind your way down.

Wangfujing street is well known as the place with bizarre food like scorpions. That's a small section of the road where tourists hang out. Most Chinese seem to hang out in the big malls. Following the theory that locals know best, we ate a couple of times in the APM mall (the one with the Apple Store), which has good... More

Street has some nice places to chill out and have a beer watching the world go. Safe and friendly at night

We stayed at the Hilton nearby and we expected something great but was a let-down. Nothing special about the street only at night when street food vendors set-up and sell strange food, like fried starfish, scorpions, Tarantulas, snake on a stick, etc. If anything worth to just see this.

Wangfujing is a combination of modern and old Chinese culture. On the main street, you can see big malls and department stores, but things get interesting on the side streets where you can buy bizarre food (scorpions, anyone?) and souvenirs. I particularly like APM mall, which houses H&M, Forever 21, Zara and the biggest Apple Store (so they say). They... More

wangfujing street is vast. I guess it is quiet nice, has lots of light in the evening. But do not be fooled as it is very, very western. The food stalls at the begging of the street on the left do not offer genuine chinese food!
