Obviously a metropolitan city such as Beijing has plenty of great places to shop, but there are always some locations that stand out. Take Wangfujing, for instance. As well as being the most famous shopping street in the city, it’s also the busiest. On an average weekday you’ll find hundreds of thousands of bargain hunters, while in the holiday season the number can reach to over a million.
Despite the crowds, you’ll easily find your way on Wangfujing among the many different shops. The most expensive brands are represented, but the street is also known for its smaller boutiques, delicious restaurants and real centuries-old traditional shops. Often called the Chinese Champs-Elysées, Wangfujing is over 700 years old.
