Most tourists who come to China definitely wants shopping. Price of the goods in the Bamboo Curtain country is fairly cheap. Well, if you are traveling to Beijing, Wangfujing Market is a great destination.
Not only domestic and foreign tourists who are fond of shopping, but also people in Beijing alone. Lucky shopping center in Beijing is located in the city center, close to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. This is the Wangfujing Market, one of the favorite shopping destinations in Beijing.
I visit this market some time ago. Not difficult to achieve, stay walk 2.5 Km from the Forbidden City or Tiananmen Square. Tourists can also take the subway Line 1 and get off at Wangfujing Station, with rate 2 Yuan.
Once you arrive, you will be guaranteed the eye ‘fresh’ when walking. Wangfujing is a path length of 1.5 km with a row of shops on either side. There are clothes, knick-knacks, electronics, textiles, toys, food and beverages. There are also shops and boutiques such as the Apple Store and Zara.
Wangfujing very crowded start the afternoon until midnight. No need to fear with vehicles, because special Wangfujing pedestrian passed. Around the market there are also several historical relics such as St Joseph’s Church was built in 1653.
In addition to shopping center, is also famous with Wangfujing snack. Here are satay seller scorpions, centipedes, lizards, starfish, to cockroaches! The food was fried in hot oil until dry, and immediately serve without additional seasoning or sauce.
If visiting Wangfujing at the weekend, do not miss the free entertainment. On Wangfujing Church Yard for example, there is a group of dancers dance classics consisting of mothers and fathers. On the other way there is also a group of parents and young people who brought modern dance. You can join and dance with them!
