This playfully upscale shopping complex in expat district Sanlitun has a vaguely ski village feel with its colorful glass panels, confusing maze of outdoor escalators and skywalks, and cute fountain-filled “piazza.” Mega-brands like Levi's, Esprit, Benetton, and Apple are well represented, and there’s a funky selection of restaurants and cafés too. We like the healthy brunches at Element Fresh, the kicking Hunan bites at Karaiya Spice House, and the pints and burgers at evening hangout Blue Frog.

WHY WE LIKE IT
The fun community feel and the good spread of reliable labels. Nice spot to kick off an afternoon in Sanlitun.
GOOD TO KNOW
In the winter, there’s an ice rink in the piazza. If you need a rainy day activity, there’s a cinema on site. This is in the heart of Sanlitun, the expat/embassy area where bars and restaurants abound.
