Beijing 2009 - Wangfujing Shopping Street
Wangfujing is one of the premier shopping districts in Beijing. It is located just to the Eastern side of the Forbidden City, in the Dongcheng District of the city. Some of the streets have been turned into pedestrian malls, and walking down these malls you feel like you could be in any major city in the World. The shopping centres are so similar, and all carry the same international brands, although here in Wangfujing you do see some of the more prominent China sports brands like Li Ning, ANTA, and China Hongxing.
The Beijing Department Store is one of the oldest departmental stores in China, and occupies pride of place in the shopping mall.
Coca Cola has a strong presence in the city.
