XiDan, 西单


My colleagues and I often went there by subway. There are a lot of shopping complex such as Xidan Market, Xidan Shopping Center, Xidan Scitech Shopping City and Zhongyou Department Store, located at XiDan commercial area and often frequented by Beijing residents. Shopping in XiDan can be a bit overwhelming due to the large crowds especially on weekends. It is a non-touristy shopping spot compared to WangFuJing, therefore the price of goods can be cheaper. A stick of sugar-coated haws only costs RMB 4. However, sugar-coated strawberries, orange and pineapple are priced at RMB 8. I had my first try on this sweet snack during winter time.
