Bustling Wangfujing Street (Wangfujing Dajie), Beijing’s original shopping street, is filled with department stores and giant malls such as the Sun Dong’an Plaza (see Shopping & Entertainment in Beijing). Everything from curios, objets d’art, antiques, clothes, and books are available here. The huge Foreign Language Bookstore is a good place to buy a more detailed map of Beijing. The street has a lively mixture of pharmacies, laundry and dyeing shops, as well as stores selling silk, tea, and shoes.

However, the street’s highlight is the Night Market, with its endless variety of traditional Chinese snacks, including skewers of beef, and more exotic morsels such as scorpions. Other offerings include pancakes, fruit, shrimps, squid, flat bread, and more. The Wangfujing Snack Street, south of the Night Market, also has a range of colorful restaurants.
