Exit xidan station from the subway, this short walk includes big malls from left to right with some restaurants, they have a mall galleries lafayette similar to the one on paris. Everything is expensive so if you don't need to buy those, then don't bother.

Very big place with many malls and department stores lining a long road. Though there were a lot of people, it was not... More

We stayed in this area, and went up and down the street a few times... You can get everything here, and it is actually not very touristy... Great restaurants in the malls, and a good place to spot locals... Not a Must see in Beijing, but if in the area....

Good for a shopping stroll - there's a good selection of malls and shops that sell a wide variety of fashion, China goods and electronics as well.

Nothing special, just lots of young people and international brands. Not where you'd go if you're looking for something unique or a memorable experience, but it'd suffice if you're just seeking basic shopping.

I spent 6hrs shopping Joy city Shopping Mall alone. Getting back to the hotel from here is tough. The taxis won't stop, I don't know why. I managed to get one after approximately 30-40minutes of flagging and walking to other parts of the streets. Prices are not cheap though, comparable with back home. But definitely they carry brands that I... More
