In terms of shopping, Wangfujing Steeet has everything. For tourists, a walk down the market alley can be exciting. You can eat barbequed scorpions, cicadas and starfish on skewers....Or just take photos of them.

Went during a couple of daytime and nighttime. During daytime, went to apm mall very nice and full of yummy food options. Night time can see lots of street performances and even dancing, quite crowded. And also people selling gadgets which can emit laser or nice lights. Beware of fraudsters who approached you suddenly with questions.

Beijing is a busy place and no mistake. That translates into this street being a buzzing place. There are shops of every hue, with upmarket chains located very close, to the street traders and entrepreneurs selling unique goods. A "must do" is to at least view the food stalls (top end of the street) but it takes a brave person... More

Be careful about the girls coming to you and say they want to know you to improve their English and offer you for a beer or coffee. You don't want to wake up next day without money or kidney. I read this before and yea that was true, they came to me 4 or 5 times, talk to them and... More

Everything you need is right there. Found a busy side street with fantastic street food, though I wasn't daring enough to try some of the reptilian bbq. Convenient malls, nice gift shops.

It's not exactly the kind of thing i'm looking for when visiting Beijing and really it's just another shopping street. The prices are not exactly cheap but it's convenient if there are things you may need to purchase for your use during the trip.

Wangfujing has everything. On the main street there are all the branded 'proper' shops, there are 2 shopping malls which are big with again all the big named shops in. Off the side of the main street there is the more Chinese cultural little, market style shops, where you can get all your souvenirs from, haggling is a given and... More

Visiting here was incredible. I personally liked the Chinese markets off to the side of the street. I got great cheap gifts for my friends back home. There are a lot of Western stores here. However the prices are roughly the same, sometimes more expensive. Lots of exquisite food. Lots of things on sticks; seahorses, fruit, meat, and scorpions. Adventurous... More

I recently went on a 10-day tour of four cities in China, and the Wangfujing Night Market was by far the most exciting and interesting thing I did during my time there. A great place to take in the culture of Beijing and to pick up some souvenirs and some scorpion pops. It's also easily accessible by metro, if you're... More

Wangfujing, easily accessible via Wangfujing MRT Station (Line 1), is really a unique place to visit in Beijing. Mainly as a shopping place, it offers wide range of well known brands such as Zara, H&M, and Apple. However, it also has a small food alley that sells lots of unique Chinese food such as Stinky Tofu and terrifying food such... More
