Most all of these places listed consistently get high reviews and they are all central meaning all the major attractions such as the Palace Museum (Forbidden City), Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Jingshan Park and Wangfujing Street are all nearby.
Wangfujing St is the king of shopping and snacking streets offering malls, street stalls, restaurants, street food, fine dining and more. When I was there this street seemed to be the center of everything, it’s where I met everyone, It’s where I ate, and where I usually finished the night before heading home. The street and it’s surrounding streets seem to have everything, it’s a great area to make a base for a Beijing trip.
