Shopping in Beijing
When I travel I want to meet real people. Meeting with locals give me a deeper understanding of the destination I visit, and they always give me inside tips on where to eat, where I find the best cocktails and where the shopping areas are. I want to experience the real life when I travel, not just the image the destination want me to visit. In this series of blogposts you will meet Joy, she is a business woman living in Beijing. In the second blogpost she talks about her passion for fashion. Joy and her family runs a very successful business in China, and she is a urban woman with a lot of international experience. Take a look whats happen when we met in Beijing recently.
Shopping in Beijing with Joy
Beijing is a big city with a lot of places to visit and of course do shopping. For a foreigner is pretty overwhelming to figur out where to go. When I met Joy the last time I was in Beijing I asked her where to shop in Beijing:
BJ SKP, the sales revenue has been the world’s top 3. A very luxury department store where you could find all the famous luxury brands and designer brands. Now it has its own buyer’s area where you could find designer labels like J.W. Anderson, R13, Mr and Mrs Italy, Thom Browne. SKP just opened its own book store, a nice place for tea and lifestyle gifts too.
星期一至星期日: 10:00 - 22:00
Taikooli – Sanlitun 三里屯太古里, this is a shopping village for high street brands to luxury, mixing with nice restaurants and lifestyle stores. It starts from a bar street and now it contains everything includes cinema and bookstore. It attracts a lots of foreigners to visit.
Park View Green – 侨福芳草地大厦, this is a shopping center but also an art gallery. The huge space between commercial stores allows emerging local or international artists to showcase their art pieces. You would see trees growing on a bridge on 10th floor. And the exhibits at different corners are changing everyday.
No. 9, Dongdaqiao Road. Chaoyang District, Beijing 100020 Opening Hours: 10:00 am-10: 00 pm
Want to visit Beijing?
Ask Tove to guide you!
Do you have any advice for foreigners who would like to experience Beijing? - First I suggest avoiding Chinese holidays because during Chinese holidays the traffic is terrible. I suggest ask a local friend who is familiar with the city to take you around because most Chinese people in the service industry does not speak well English, especially taxi drivers. The places listed in the travel guidance are sometimes tricky. There are a lot of nice places hidden in the city. You could get some very good suggestions from Timeout Beijing, or ask someone who have been to Beijing before, like Tove, lol.
