Tianmen (qianmen square) has to be visited. It's a very busy square, where you can visit the mausoleum of Chairman Mao, the museum and The Forbidden City. You have to pass through stict security gates before entering the square. Unsure how secure it is though as the security police always seem to be on the mobile phones. Lots of army... More

If you want to buy some China souvenirs, go to this area first before you go to the Silk Market or Waifujing. I got so many items that were 5 times as much in the Silk Market. It's fun to walk around and you can even bargain! You can see Chinese people shopping here as well. It's going to be... More

This is a growing shopping and eating area just to the south of Tianamen Square. If you've spent part of the day in the museum or just strolling around Tianamen, Qianmen Street is a great way to end the day. We first visited this street in 2011 and loved the main shopping street but also the little alleyways to each... More

I think I visited China in the wrong season. Very cold place. Long road near to my hotel. Many shops, malls and restaurants. Got a good quality of tea. Metro or Mini-Train is there for kids. You can spend many hours easily.

A must see area of beautiful ancient exterior buildings. Inside every building are modern upmarket shops & restaurants. Madame Tussauds is located here. Souvenirs costs more here.
