186 Wangfujing St, WangFuJing, Dongcheng Qu, China, 100006
Wangfujing is first and foremost a tourist market. It's bold, brash, and unapologetic—and for that, it has my respect. Wangfujing is comfortable in its own skin, even when that skin is crawling with scorpions. I'll always have a special place in...

You can’t leave Beijing without having Peking duck at Da Dong. I eat the crisp skin first, dipped in sugar. Then I pile the skin, meat, leek, cucumber, and sweet, fermented sauce onto pancakes. I finish by drinking the broth from the carcass. —...

While exploring the 798 Art District in Beijing I was confronted with these anachronistic beasts whose cages were stacked vertically, shipping container-style. Although it has become a bit of a destination, the 798 is a great place to spend an...

Cafes, restaurants, and bars proliferate in the secluded hutong alleyways of Beijing. One of the best is Mao Mao Chong, a name that refers to "caterpillar"—and makes this seem an ideal spot to include on a pub crawl. Started by a Chinese and...
