I want to spent a day in Beijing what should I do and where do I must go for a trip and shopping?


City: Beijing

Municipality: Beijing

Country: China



Wow, a day in Beijing, a city that has enough to see for a month or a life time.

Well, shopping, go for the Pearl market.

Best regards
I like the YaShow market, it's not as high pressure as the Pearl Market, though, sometimes it's fun to have a whole bunch of people shouting at you to buy their wares.

Any cabbie should know "YaShow", if they don't just
say "SanLiTun" they should drop you at the corner where the big Adidas shop, go left for about 500 meters.
If you start early enough you can take a ride out to the MuTianYu Great Wall, and by noontime head back to Beijing. Hit the Silk market for window shopping and then Ya Xiao (sp) for buying. Also not far away is the Yabalu Russian market which is interesting and cheaper.
Only one day?Not too many places that you can visit.Big brands all over the world,please Wangfujing Street;little things of Beijing style,such like calligraphy&painting lacquerwork etc. not too expensive during your enjoying the travel around summer palace;softwares and digital products,Pleas go to Zhong Guan-cun,there,Hai-long (Sea dragon)Plaza is one of the attrative corners.
Need more,please visit or
One single day is too short for Beijing. Anyway, if you had only a half day for sightseeing and another half day for shopping, then Forbidden City or the Great Wall is the must and Yashow or Silk Market maybe is the best choices.

You could find the Beijing City tour on (), you can pick up any single day for your Beijing Sightseeing.

A day in Beijing is certainly not enough time. For one day maybe visit The Great Wall early and do some shopping at the Silk Market in the afternoon or evening. If you just want to stay in the city, visit the Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City, Summer Palace. There are also some parks worth visiting. Behai Park and Jingshan are some good ones. Enjoy
A day is so can choose some extraordinary places which are not far from the downtown,eg the Palace Museum,Wangfujing,Xidan shopping center.
If you only have one day explorering Beijing, I suggested you go to the very center here - the Tiananmen square. The Forbidden City located there. And for the shopping, Wu Daokou in Hai Dian district is one good place to go.
Hi, I think you should visit the great wall, the forbidden city, the summer palace,etc. for shopping, the silk market is good. If you visit Xi'an, pls contact me, I can provide your guide service
