Here on the main street of Beijing we can find the Night Food Market in which we can taste many delicious foods ranging from dumplings to fried scorpions. Moreover, there are shopping centres here as well to accommodate travellers with whatever they need! Definately a very good spot for food, night life, and cultural customs!

Visited last May. We went late afternoon. It is a big place as so many things catch your eye, you need to work out where to go first. We looked around the genuine shops first then round the market. The food stalls were the usual live baby scorpions and locusts but we opted not to dine there! It was absolutely... More

Not worth the time if you are in Beijing for some culture. For some splurge then yes. The Karl Lagerfeld shop in No88 Mall have an amazing collection. If you are here for some culture better go to the market tucked in near WangFuJing. I can't recall the name but you'll spot the crowd when you hit the WangFuJing department... More

Wangfujing Street in the Dongcheng District is worth a visit. It offers shopping malls with all the 'real brands' (meaning no fakes) as well as lively old narrow streets where you can experience classical chinese shopping and food culture.

This is a huge shopping street, quite daunting when you first see it. I prefer to cut left at the bottom and go down the lanes full of food stalls. Some of the food looks fairly tasty and inviting, but some, such as huge insect pupae and wriggling baby scorpions on skewers, a little less so. One way or another,... More

Okay, nobody's saying you have to actually eat the live scorpions, starfish, seahorses and other delicacies for sale, but you should definitely check out the night markets here anyway. It's definitely a worthwhile experience during your time in Beijing.

Wangfujing is your typical urban shopping street, with many western stores vying to attract both wealthy locals and foreigners alike. If you're into shopping, it's worth checking out. If you're like me who doesn't like shopping at all, I'd recommend just avoiding it all together or just strolling across it once just to see what the hype is all about... More

When I traveled to Beijing, I went to Wangfujing Street. Well, it is quite a busy commercial street with a long of people and a lot of things to buy. There are stalls, stores and malls along the street selling various kinds of commodities. I ate a lot of Beijing local specialties in the food area. They were delicious. If... More
