If you want to see some interesting food.... and by interesting I mean, tarantulas, insects, sea horses, spiders (yes, people EAT this stuff).... well you get the point. This short and narrow street is not to be missed! Oh and the insects really do taste like chicken.... (I know from experience!)Popular withFoodiesBudgetStudents

What it was: the center of diplomatic activity in beijing. What it became: a place where many foreign expats congregated. What it is now: a popular area with bars and restaurants catering to foreigners and locals alike. Sanlitun has been evolving along with the changes in social, economic, and even political ways that is China today.Popular withLuxury

A great place, to try everything you never thought of eating before. The shops here sell everything from scorpions to centipods, seastars, snakes and so on. Naming everything would clearly go beyond the scope of a review.. go there and see (and eat of course) it yourself, it's amazing.Popular withFoodiesLocalBackpackers

Panjiayuan Second-hand Market is a terrific place to purchase and stock up on traditional souvenirs for friends and loved ones. It's a market (really it's more of a street) that is devoted to all things traditional and Chinese such as water color paintings, calligraphy, etc.Popular withLocalLuxury

If you live and work in the CBD area this mall is good for doing groceries: besides the flashy high end couture shops on the ground floor, the basement hosts a number of small good restaurants and shops for everyday needs, meeting the taste and necessities of foreigners who are alright with not needing JennyLou's all the time.Popular withLuxury

This area houses many wholesalers for Beijing. They open super early (like 8am) and close really early (4pm). There are alot of deals worth discovering.. however the only downside to shopping here is the lack of being able to try clothes on. Otherwise, this is a fantastic place to shop for the latest asian fashion on the cheap.

There are many tailors in Beijing and it is rather hard to find one that we trust and that provides quality service. Personally, I have found my tailor here.

Right by the rare door of Beihai Park and on the bank of Hou Hai (Rare Lake), Lotus Lane is known for the abundance of restaurants, shopping and pubs. The streets maintain the traditional Hu Tong architecture. It is a fun place to visit during the day as well as at night. It is quite popular among the locals.Popular withOutdoorAdventure

Set in a courtyard with Qing dynasty-inspired furniture tucked into small rooms and cushion seating in the front room, a bike ride to this hutong bar is a special way to spend a summer’s day. I like to order Mojitos and snack on appetizers made in their sister venue located nearby, Café Sambal.Popular withAdventure

Have you ever wonder where locals go to get linen? Kitchen Sinks? or even Cookware? Well many Beijingers come here. This market has everything you need to furnish a house on the cheap. Bargain is necessary (as with practically anything in Beijing)
