“Interesting food street”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The food street sells exotic stuff like live scorpions, starfish, centipedes etc.

A lot of vendors selling souvenirs and stuff but one must really bargain hard.

The main street is just lots of normal shops which one could find in the shopping centre but we were warned about pickpockets in the area.

“Shopping!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

There are lots of shoppings around the main street. There is a big bookstore too... I simply love a shopping mall by the name of apm.

“What a nice market!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We just came from there! Really interesting place! The hutongs are better places to buy (you can make great deals; buy clothes very cheap, but you must look for.

“Needs cleaning!!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Wangfujing is always hustle & bustle, until everyone retires off by 2200. However, the place needs a lot of cleaning and maintenance. Shopkeepers generally try to rip you off so heavy bargain is a must.

“Vibrant and energetic”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

While in Beijing a visit to this street is a must for there is so much to see and do . Shops of all brands were seen apart from the local curio stalls where bargaining was necessary . but the most interesting bye-lane was the "eating Street' which sold everything under the sun from scorpions, starfish to dimsums and fried rice. chinese beer was also available. In the evenings its crowded , noisy and brightly lit.Energy level is high and you feel good just watching everybody around. We took Chinese translation of the food we wanted to eat which made thigs easier.
