Everything from small sweet shops to large department stores. Snack Street was quite an experience, very crowded both daytime and at night.

We went to Wanfujing Mall a few times and we ventured outside the mall too. It's a very busy street selling all sorts of goods. It does get very busy though.

A not particularly charming but most definitely interesting street scene in Beijing, with all sorts of people, vendors, families, oddballs and an abundance of shops and an amazing shopping mall (where the Apple Store is) -- don't miss Din Tai Fung dumpling shop on the 5th or 6th floor of the mall and order the juicy pork dumplings!

We were staying in a hotel at the top of this road so we came down here on our first night. I loved seeing people out in the street dancing and doing there own thing. I didn't really go into any shops just the Mini So which we loved

Walking down this crowded market at night and observing live scorpions on a stick waiting to be immersed in hot oil is a sight to behold. There were foods we have never seen before and it was a great way to spend the evening with the locals enjoying an evening out.

Really nice street with lots of places to see at night. You can walk around and see lots of lights which make it a pretty view and an occasion for nice pictures. Once you are done with the street there is not much to see you but you can walk around and explore the different shops. Many big brand malls... More

Fun street to eat and shop. Lots of neon and the side streets are full of great Chinese food. Pedestrian only, which makes it safe.

The street was interesting to me. It is like a giant shopping mall itself. In fact, only shopping malls are on this street and banks. The bank of China is at the beginning - convenient to exchange money. Two large bookstores. One of them - I think it has on itself LARGEST BOOK STORE was on 6 floors and one... More

We appreciate that part of this street was closed off from motor vehicles. Phew!!! It's good to be able to walk around without having to worry that you would get run over by a car or something! This area was forever busy at whatever time of the day! It's great place to people watch, visit the food street and watch... More

There's a big foreign bookstore here. And I love being at the St. Joseph's church. I don't care much about the stores for shopping but it's a good place to people watch.
