They all consistently get high reviews, and they are all centrally located with major attractions such as the Palace Museum (Forbidden City), Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Jingshan Park and Wangfujing Street all being nearby. They are also close to metro stations making transport convenient.
Wangfujing St is the king of shopping and snacking streets offering malls, street stalls, restaurants, street food, fine dining and more. The famed street is the place where I met everyone for get-togethers, it’s where I ate most of the time, and where I usually finished the night before heading home. The street and its surrounding streets seem to have everything, and many of the major attractions are within walking distance, or short metro hop, making it a great area to be based in.
