Beijing WangfujingStarting from Chang’an Street in the south and end with National Art Museum in the north, Wangfujing Street extends for a total length of more than 1,800 meters. Being positioned as the most flourishing business quarter in Beijing, the forming of Wangfujing Street can be dated back to 1260.

During Liao and Jin Dynasties, Wangfujing was just a nameless village. Then when it came to Yuan Dynasty, more and more people lived there and it became populous gradually with the name of T-crossing Street. In Ming Dynasty, ten prince mansions were built on the street and business came to booming there. From then on, it was renamed Shiwangfu Street (Ten Prince Palaces Street). In the following dynasty Qing, the previous princes were abrogated and the street got a new name — Wangfu Street. About the current name Wangfujing Street, it came from a well on the street during the year of Emperor Guangxv (in 1905). It is said that it used to produce slightly-sweet water. To mark the well, people added jing (well) to the previous name Wangfu.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the embryo of the Dong’an Department Store was built on a scrapped parade ground. With the forming of the embassy quarters, some banks and shops served only for foreigners turned up in Wangfujing . By and by, the commercial activities on the street got upgraded and Wangfujing Street earned its spot in the list of Four Great Business Quarters of Beijing.

Nowadays, Wangfujing has now housed the grandest business building, shopping mall, hotel and exclusive shop in Asia and hundreds of renowned companies and brands from home and abroad. Wandering along this thriving and commodious street paved with granite, you can feast your eyes away on the dazzling commodities and majestic buildings. And you will enjoy a pleasant tour in Wangfujing with its neat and considerate design of the facilities: If you want to do shopping, you do not elbowed through the crowded downtown, for all kinds of stores and supermarkets at all class are available at Wangfujing; if you get tired, it would be a good idea to throw yourself on the seats on the street and take a good rest; if you cannot wait to share what you have experienced on the street with your family and friends, the IC card public telephone booths are there at your service; if you lost your way, just take it easy on Wangfujing, for guideboards will be everywhere to guide you…
