This is probably the most famous street for shoppers and good that it is very local and has its atmosphere, while foreigners also come. Good way to pass a few pleasant hours in central Beijing. Side streets are also good to visit, for example a food street.

If you can spare an hour or so head to Wangfujing Snack Street and prepared to be amazed at the wide variety of strange and unusual array of foods cooked at these street stalls. We ate there and had no problems with sickness however I would suggest to choose wisely as there is no refrigeration on the meat and seafood.... More

wear flat shoes and bring bottled water. you can normally find an english speaking person to help if you are lost but a good map is essential. travelling by taxi? make sure you have your destination written down in chinese - the drivers don't know where you mean otherwise!

I didn't feel like this street deserved a special trip: the same shops as everywhere in Beijing, however, you may want to go inside the book store, it was interesting to wander around. There's a side street too, and it's full of little souvenir shops and vendors selling food: prices are relatively high though, but give the food a try... More

We enjoyed shopping with family at the wangfujing street, Beijing, which was very near to our hotel. One can avail very renowned brand shops as well as many street shops available in this street, where one will find local foods, souvenir, clothing and other essential items. He had our food in McDonalds and Pizza Hut.

What I like about Wangfujing is not what it offers the locals - that is all the high end stores you could ever want, but the side streets off of the main drag, although when it gets dark and all the food sellers come out its hard to see them as individual businesses since they all have the same coloured...

Busy on the weekends, go on a weekday. Don't forget the side alleys. If you want you can try fried insects or other fried stuff.
