Supermarkets in Beijing – Info for your China travel

This article is about the supermarkets in Beijing. You can find some helpful information in it if you are planning your Beijing travel now.

There are lots of nice supermarkets in Beijing: Carrefour, Wal-mart and other Chinese supermarkets.

As we all know, China begins to limit the use of plastic bags from June 1,2008. This is to support the environment protection. If you do not bring your own bags to the supermarket, you will need to pay for the recyclable bags. In Carrefour, it is 1 rmb for one recyclable bag.

(1). Carrefour:

In the Beijingers’ point of views, the fresh vegetables and fruits are very good here and the prices are reasonable. The daily commodities here are cheap. The most attractive thing here is the imported red wine. You can have many good choices in Carrefour ( about only 30 rmb ). One thing I don’t like is that Carrefour is always so crowded, especially in the weekends. Sometimes you will have to wait for 20 – 30 minutes in the line for check out.
