Vast Chaoyang District extends east from Dongcheng, encompassing Beijing's Jianguomen diplomatic neighborhood, the Sanlitun bar area, the Central Business District, and several outdoor markets and upscale shopping malls. The large foreign population living and working here has encouraged many international restaurants to open, making this a fine place to sample dishes from around the world. If you're in Sanlitun, head to the third floor of Taikoo Li Village for the best selection of mid-range and affordable international eats. Home to most of the city’s five-star hotels, Chaoyang is also where Beijing’s nouveau riche flock for ultra-luxe dining.
