This is probably the most well known and classic area for shopping.. and to see the modern China in glamour. While a lot of it is just boring brand shops. There are exiting things as well. 24hour restaurants where you can drink all night, crazy street vendors.. selling all kinds of strange night snacks and goods.
I guess it mostly boils down to the nightlife.. the best bars are not here.. but it’s a great place to walk and watch out for your wallet. Wangfujing is a must see in Beijing.
