Recently, Beijing's Wangfujing Pedestrian Street opens its 344-meter extended section northward as scheduled.
Wangfujing Pedestrian Street is an iconic commercial zone and tourist attraction for more than a century old. Wangfujing Pedestrian Street is now 892 meters long, and covers two out of the four sections of the 1,818-meter-long Wangfujing Street.
The extension is a step toward building an integrated street block of cultural, commercial and tourist elements, said by the Wangfujing region's management office, noting that the upgrading of businesses in the zone will soon be rolled out.
Wangfujing is considered as the central heart of Beijing City, and it is the first modern-style commercial street in Beijing. Wangfujing is also the business zone in Beijing, and there houses a wide variety of shops and boutiques. Apart from that, there are also many time honored stores with traditional commodities standing in the street for hundreds of years.
