The mall or walking street is full of activity. Yes there is plenty of shopping but we're not into just shopping. What we found interesting was the street dancing that was happening. It looked liked tourists were being drawn into the locals dancing.

It's a walking street, shoppers paradise with restaurants, street foods, souvenir shops, malls etc. We saw several Chinese delicacies like fried scorpions etc!!! We bought a lot of packed foods & souvenirs, haggling for price was a joy when buying souvenirs!

It’s a busy lively touristy street, close to Sunworld Dynast Hotel where I stayed. I could have enjoyed more, if I wasn’t so tired after touring all day.

The modern part of Beijing. Basically it's just a shopping street similar to Orchard Road in Singapore. And the price seems more expensive than Qianmen and Dashilian area. There is a church but it was not open when I went there.

What an eye opener this street was with all the amazing and exotic food. Some stalls you are not allowed to take photos but most love it. Just keep and open mind and go with the flow. I went around 5:30pm and the street was full already.

Went to the market in the evening and it was packed with people. It was interesting to visit but the smell of trash and oil was over powering.

Our tour guide told us this was the Grafton street of Beijing & he wasn't lying. Found lot of different shops on offer. A number of shops selling wee bits & bobs to take home as presents. Pretty good value! The food market is just off thus street also, prepare for plenty of hard bargaining!

It's like the Oxford street of Beijing. Visit the street food market. Though I hardly ate anything but good to visit once
