BEIJING 2007 [8] Modern Market, Historic Sites

Wangfujing has been a market for quite a while before being modernized into today's mix of shopping malls and fancy stores.



Bring a Peking duck home!




Try some not so ordinary skewers!




Weave through the street markets.















Americanization





Surprise surprise! European-style church!



















Now more historic Chinese sites!

There r four words on this monument."惠我东方"
惠--care, bless
我--me,our
东方--east

The church is lit up at night, my picture:


anyway, Wangfujing was a big dissapointment for me, I expected something like Nanjing East Rd in Shanghai.

Agree, even Xidan is more vibrant, and Dongdan/Guomao area offer more choices for upscale shopping.
