Donghuamen Snack Street
Beijing's famous Wangfujing night market. Many interesting food choices from larva, grasshoppers, beetles, snakes, squids, starfish, dry ice...

By following the wafting aroma of cooking, tourists can find the most natural and simple flavors of Old Beijing in the street. Located at the northern entrance of Wangfujing Street, Donghuamen Night Market is the most famous snack street in Beijing, popular with both locals and tourists as well. After its pedestrianization, Donghuamen Snack Night Market became the No. 1 snack street in Beijing. When the night falls, the assortment of tasty treats from both northern and southern China, plus the bustling crowds and the rhythmical huckstering is another attraction in Beijing you shouldn't miss.

There is something incredibly appealing about eating in the open air. It seems much more natural than sitting in the confines of a restaurant, and the atmosphere is completely different. There is a strange sense of community among the large crowd that stretches the length of the snack stands. Perhaps it is the knowledge that everyone is trying these bizarre foods, but I think it is more that everyone is out to have a good time, a collective of people enjoying the evening air and the simplicity of the event. Vendors yell out their wares, crowds gather in front of the particularly strange foods, and large clouds of steam push up through the air as you walk from one stop to the next. You might not be hungry in the least, but whether you go for the food or for the sights does not really matter, for this is an experience more than anything else.
