“For bold & exotic palate only...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Wangfujing mall is a must see shopping center when you visit beijing,china...a high end mall where you can find only branded bags, clothes, shoes and all expensive stuffs...this is were the rich people of beijing shops and dine...jewelries are expensive too, 3x higher than the price compared to stores outside the mall while in fact they have the same supplier... but of cors it matters where the location is.

But the best are in the street of wangfujing just beside the mall. If you have an adventurous taste or willing to try exotic foods, you should go and eat in these street.. you can try to eat grilled tarantulas, scorpions, woodworms, grasshoppers (grasshoppers are nice if deep fried and partner in soda or beers) mountain frogs,beatles, cockroaches, centipedes, monkey fingers and some times dog meat too in sticks...(i will try to eat different foods in my life but i will never try to eat dog meat...i remember my loving 7yr old shih tzu back home) and all those crazy stuff you can think of...they sell along the street like hotdogs in new york from 2yuan to 10yuan...that was the best example of knowing the culture of a certain place through their foods they sell and eat, not just the structures of great wall or fobidden city.A must try for a bold, exotic and adventurous palate.

“A Wonderful Safe Place to Stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The shops were to die for; the staff cute and helpful. The Night Markets a thrilling experience. The Hutongs with wonderful honest people

“Mixture of everything.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

First impression is an expansive paved mall with massive colourful screens and activities in each direction. To the south west are typical chinatown alleyways with stalls selling scorpions and seahorses on sticks and the usual trinkets. The atmosphere is electric and the mall proper is spacious and imaculately clean but branded products are dearer than home. Whilst entertaining during the day the visitor has to be there at night to take in the array of neons and clamour of more shoppers.

“Great place to shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This had everything you need, from department stores to markets. A great place to visit at night after eating dinner, we wondered the market place buying nick nacks to seeing the variety of food available including scorpions of sticks,
No we did not try them.........

“busy all the time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

liked it all, but just so busy! Plenty of high quality shops, restaurants, but the night narket ( food ) made me feel sick, the smell and looking at all they cook up to sell. I deffo wouldnt eat anything from there, no refridgeration, sanitation etc.
