Wangfujing Street: Shopping street

Wangfujing Street is a big shopping street with clothes, booksores, street food and other. This are is almost everytime crowded but as far as I visited it twice, I didn't saw many foreigners. And yes, people were asking to take pictures. MANY pitures with me...

Dear page guests, please be ready, that in Beijing you should have a lot of cash. Realy, they took our credit card only once( and this was in boutique) ! As we tried to use our 2 different cards (Visa and Mastercard), it didn't work...

This street is a nice place to walk and to take a pictures but I think this is not the best place for shopping. BUT this is the good place to find an eating place.

Wangfujing Street, hotel shops, airport: Stylish Chinese design suitable for visitors

What to buy A company called Four Colors Earth (FCE) makes long-sleeved men's Chinese modernised traditional dress. Not many clothes apart from the Mao suit makes a man here in China, but this one will.
They are all hand made, come in a varity of designs (both for men and women) and colors, and you will inevitable find something that you like. However, the size may not fit you, and this may be the only one of its kind...
I'll take a photo of one or two I have and upload it soon.
The material ranges from polyester via rayon, cotton linen, and various silk qualities, and combinations of these.
No matter which one you choose, it will draw positive comments and make people turn in appreciation.

What to pay The individual designs and a captured market make these high-qulaity clothes very expensive, and you may have to pay up to 1800 Y for the finest and most refined ones.
The simple cotton ones could be down to 350-500 Y.

Wangfujing Street: Main shopping area

We did most of our shopping in Wangfujing Street while in Beijing. Although we didnt do a lot of shopping as we only had 20kg baggage limits on our internal flights. It was quite difficult to restrain ourselves, as everything we saw, we wanted to buy! Lucky we didnt though, because even though the shopping was cheap here, it was even cheaper in the 3 other cities we visited.

Some Department stores here were quite expensive, (like In Time Lotte) but one we found was good was Oriental Plaza. It had a huge variety of shops, plus had great food hall on the 5th and 6th floors.

We also bought little souvenirs at all of the main attractions we visited, like postcards and playing cards.

The vast majority of shops in China (and certainly all the market areas) allow for bargaining and indeed they welcome it and unless you seriously want to get ripped off, it is a necessity. As for how hard you bargain, that is entirely up to you. Their first price will be a huge rip-off, and most of the time, we managed to get the price down to about a quarter or even a fifth of their starting price. Id say our average would be about 1/4 or 1/3 of their price. Ultimately, whatever you are prepared to pay for an item, then makes it a "good price". After a while, you quickly realise the insanity of it all when you are arguing over 5 or 10c! It is much better in their wallet than in yours!

Night Market: The Night Market on Wangfujing Street

The stores of Wangfujing Street close at 9PM, but a small night market stays open after that which caters to tourists. The night market consists of vendor stalls that stretch along a few blocks of side streets and alleys that branch off from Wangfujing Street near the southern end of its pedestrian mall section.

What to buy Most of the stalls sell either souvenirs or food. The souvenirs are the same things that you see in shops all over the city, and you will have to bargain to get down to the right price. We shopped for postcards and Christmas ornaments there. The food on offer in the food stalls ranges from ordinary (ice cream) to unusual (scorpion-on-a-stick and seahorse-on-a-stick are a couple of the stranger ones that we saw).

What to pay For souvenirs, try to buy them for about 1/3 of the asking price. You will have to bargain for a few rounds and walk away once or twice to get to the right price.
