  • Lots to see and do, and lots to buy. Also, if you are here and have a Mac computer, there is a legitimate Apple Store in the area, and the people that work there speak good English. 
  • The pedestrian area of Wangfujing street, near the forbidden city, was already an area strongly commercial. In recent years, has begun a process that seems to take it to be similar to Nanjing Road in Shanghai: a street surrounded by Malls of luxury with a complete supply of all the major international brands to international prices. By now less artificial than Nanjing Road, it has its still attractive spaces in old department stores and in the side streets. A feature curious: there are very few places to eat.
