St. Joseph’s Church 大圣若瑟堂 commonly known as Wangfujing Church 王府井天主堂 or Dongtang 東堂 is an early 20th-century Romanesque Revival church that is one of the four historic Catholic churches in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Beijing. It is located in the Dongcheng District of the city at 74 Wangfujing Street.

The construction of the church was finished in 1655 by Jesuit missionaries. Due to renovations and reconstruction, the current structure dates back to 1904. The church is the second oldest in Beijing after the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

How to get there: take Beijing metro line no. 1, Wangfujing station. Go north along Wangfujing walking street for 10 minutes, church is on your right.

We go there at night and the light is so beautiful. There’s so many people in here, especially family and couple. The atmosphere is very peaceful and suitable for those who wants to relax.

When I study in China, it’s 1 years before 2008 Beijing Olympiade so there’s so many Olympiade mascott in there. One of them is in Wangfujing.

Again, The Place 世贸天街 Mall – Farewell dinner at Golden Jaguar 金钱豹 Buffet (3) # Beijing – China

The study semester is over and some of us will go back for good. So we decided to have a farewell dinner at Golden Jaguar 金钱豹 Buffet in The Place 世贸天街 Mall. It’s a all you can eat restaurant, with price 180 Yuan/person.

Defining itself as an “international cuisine collection,” Golden Jaguar is a paradise for buffet lovers – a mecca to gluttony – lose yourself in the enormous selection of dishes from both the Western and Chinese cookery traditions displayed in a seemingly endless succession of cooking stations armed by a veritable army of a waitstaff. The concept may seem dubious, but Golden Jaguar stands out for the sheer variety of dishes and cuisines is reason enough to indulge on everything from sushi, steak, oysters, salads, swallow’s nest soup, abalone, dim sum, steaks, Southeast Asian food, Italian pastas, French cuisine, sushi, sashimi, all-you-can ice cream and more.
