    Bugs, scorpions, lizards. This place has all the weird food you came to China to try. Do not pay asking price for anything!! If you pay 1/2 you're still paying much more than you would anywhere else.

    Scorpion is terrifying there, for the first time I've ever seen a scorpion in a frying pot.

    Come here for a snack. There are slightly more normal things to eat, but the best are the scorpions. The small ones are just crunchy, but the large ones are hard on the outside and soft on the inside

    Place for tourists to take pictures of scorpion, starfish and sea horse but not actually buying anything. Except if it's someone's bachelor party

    That's a very touristic place, but if you want to eat a spider, lizard, scorpion, starfish or seahorse: that's the best place.

    Crowded but worth the experience. Snake basically tastes like chicken and scorpion like crisps.

    One of the must-visit places in Bejing! Very exotic with a pinch of weird. WARNING: only for people with strong stomachs!

    Small street food market along Wangfujing shopping distrct. Their specialties include fried scorpions and starfish. Be careful when taking pictures since some vendors don't appreciate it.

    At the end of the street a stall selling escargots, mussles, etc - big cockle was freaking RMB 36 EACH (rainy day RMB 18), not per serving! Total rip-off.

    Wangfujing is one of Beijing’s modern shopping streets. Ignore the hawkers selling novelty skewers of deep fried spiders and scorpions, and head to Haidilao in the Tianyingtai Department Store.

    I especially like the glass bottles painstakingly handpainted from inside the bottle (with an incredibly thin bent brush)!!!!
