Q: Where can I buy wrapping paper in Beijing?

In all my years here, I haven't noticed any place that sells proper birthday or Christmas wrapping paper anywhere. Does anyone know of any shop that sells it?

Another option is to go to what i've dubbed 'toys paradise' behind Hongqiao Pearl Market (west gate of Tian Tan). You can find wrapping papers in all shape, colours and material... and it's super cheap too. Head for the 2nd floor and you'll find all you need...

Umm...hello never tried Walmart yet? Also, during christmas some places may do free gift wrapping for you. There is a little store across from the Walmart around the CBD area that sells wrapping.

Good news bad news thing.

Good news is that you can buy it almost everywhere.

Bad news is that it only comes in red.

I posted this a year ago but am once again struggling to find decent Christmas wrapping paper in Beijing. April Gourmet only has really tacky paper which I wouldn't consider wrapping my presents in.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
