This weekend I ventured over to the Wanfujing area of Beijing. I knew I was going to love this area when I realized the subway exit leads you directly into a huge mall without ever having to go outside. If anyone can’t find me in the winter….you know where I’ll be. 

Anyways, if you decide to exit the mall, there is the Wanfujing street market very close by. This famous market is comprised of all types of weird and exotic food that I would never let go near my mouth. We passed many scorpions, live and dead, fried silk worms, fish, and many things I couldn't quite name. While all of the food is pretty gross, the shopping in the market is quite cheap and the perfect place to buy touristy gifts for friends and family! I would say the Wanfujing Street Market is a must-see for a night in Beijing.
