Nowadays, it's got the famous Wangfujing Bookstore, the Beijing Department Store, silk shops, the famous Dong Lai hot pot, & the Donghuamen Night Market (just off the street), Wangfujing Cathedral and various tourist stuff.
Wangfujing has its own stop on line 1.

Inside they sell ridiculous things:
