    Brightly Lit and Clean
    This area is home to a few very nice malls and is surrounded by higher end hotels. Lots of dining options and shops for all kinds of budgets. As of December 2020 it is hard to find mall open mall entrances and a health code and temperature check is a must at most. The malls are very clean and bright as well.

    Beijing China
    We really enjoyed our time shopping and taking photos with the natives. The majority of the children spoke English and weren't afraid to speak with you. If we had more time I would have loved to have spent a day with one of the natives. Other than invading my personal space I didn't have any problems.

    Touristy and Expensive
    This could be a street anywhere in the world. Only a few spots have any Chinese character to them and everything is expensive. Better to visit the food street behind the shopping street. It’s also touristy, but it’s colorful and the food offerings are unusual and tasty.

    Nothing spectacular
    Overall, I don’t think that there is anything particularly special about this street. One can find all the brands, as well as many shopping malls within. I wouldn’t say that this is an absolute must - if you are stressed for time, don’t put it at the top of your list, as the food mall is currently closed. Otherwise, if you have the time, it is accessible from the Forbidden City.

    Food trip at Wangfujing
    After our Forbidden City tour, we took the Wangfujing exit. We had our lunch at Beijing Pie restaurant. It was really cozy and affordable restaurant. We love the meat pie and jajang noodles. On our way to the subway, there are a lot of hutongs and souvenir shops along the way. I highly recommend a visit to Wangfujing for food trip after your Forbidden city tour.

    Fine shopping but not at the level of other Asian metropoles
    Although one of the most famous shopping streets in Beijing, we were not that impressed with Wangfujing street. Compared to similar places in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, etc. this scores less in terms of charm and content.

    East meets west
    An ok place, depending on what you are after. Full shopping centres with lots of big brands, some Chinese tea shops. An amazing foreign bookstore - probably the best part of the street! Nice to spend an afternoon on this street walking round, but a bit too western for me!

    Beijing’s famous pedestrian shopping street
    I come here mainly to enjoy the walk, do a little shopping, and duck into a mall at the southerly end of the street. Of the street’s 1.5 kilometre length, about half is a pedestrians only section, although there are some service vehicles and the like which drive at low speeds. On this walk, I especially liked the cow statues in about the middle section of the pedestrian street.

    Wide pedestrian shopping street
    A portion of this wide street is a pedestrian shopping street, albeit, there are a few service vehicles which use the street. It is an interesting mix of retailers, but not any evident theme which brings them together. I walked it more out of interest, than A desire to shop here.

    Love the statues of the five bulls & the insightful photo display
    Lots to see and okay for shopping. Many people walking the street for their weekend outing. I most loved the statues of the five bulls, and the display of very insightful photographs which take one through some of the significant developments in China over the past 50 years. Most of my attached photos are of the photos displayed on Wangfujing Street.

The street has a mix of everyday and higher-end Chinese and foreign brands/retailers, souvenir shops, as well as fast food eateries, restaurants, cafés and more. One this visit, I bought a few scarves, as they are light and take little space in my luggage, as I continue my travels. The most interesting street to many tourists is a side street known as the Donghuamen Market, where all types of exotic and unusual foods/snacks are sold for on the spot freshly cooked, roasted or deep-fried scorpions, lizards, crabs, silkworms, baby ducks, crickets, centipedes, and more.

We walked the pedestrian street, along with thousands of others. It is wide, but in aggregate, the collection of retailers could be much better. Too many souvenir shops selling dust collectors. Tourists tend to visit, but it isn’t much better than an average quality attraction.
