It's flat-pack fun from Sweden, plus meatballs! All the familiar homogenised furniture and interior accessories you've either come to love or loathe can be found in abundance at Beijing's flagship IKEA megastore. The sightseers and sofa surfers make things rather crowded at peak hours.
Ikea also has a huge selection of decorations on offer. For Christmas, there are hanging decoration sets, wreathes and garlands, LED lighting chain, cushions, rugs and even gift wrap roll. For a birthday party, cutlery sets, napkins, tableware, balloons and streamers are all available.
