    Certainly there is Wangfujing street but if you want to get off the beaten do you drive to Yandai Xie Street. It's a street of usual much more beautiful than the horrors of tourist shops. There are nice things, a "old" post, of pretty postcards (rare in China), small shops for snacking and above all, at the end of the street, a beautiful Lake where you can rent a boat, or even dinner (on command) aboard a junk. However avoid going there on a Saturday night, it's dark world. Moment of relaxation, some tourists and souvenirs to bring back.
