Beijing Shopping

Wangfujing Street
Situated in the north of East Chang’an Avenue, Wangfujing Street has played host to shoppers for over a century. Lined with shops on either side, Wangfujing Street has large shopping centers as well, among them Beijing APM Plaza (for­merly named Sun Dong’an Plaza), the 100,000 sq m complex where you can find 200,000 different types of commodities and the One World Department Store that sells famous international brands.

Xidan Shopping Street
Visit Chung­yo Department Store, Xidan Market, Xidan Shopping Center, and Xidan SciTech for shopping, recreation and eating out.

Silk Street Market
It used to be a bustling open-air market. It now is a building with a glass screen on four sides where you will find the Ruifuxiang Branch Store and the Hot Wind Garment chain store, among others selling traditional Chinese silk and famous clothing brands.

How to get there: Take a subway to Yong’anli Station.

Liulichang Culture Street in Hepingmenwai, Xuanwu District
During the Yuan and Ming periods, glazed tiles were produced here. Later, in the Qing period, antique shops opened for business. During Qianlong’s reign (1736­1795), Liuli­chang became a commercial hub dealing in ancient paintings, calligraphy, books, rubbings and the four treasures (writing brush, ink stick, ink slab and paper). As late as 1982 Liulichang Culture Street was remodeled, and is now a cultural center for shoppers on the look out for works of Chinese art.

How to get there: Take a subway to Hepingmen Station, and walk 250 m along South Xinhua Street.
