A funny place where you most certain will be fooled into buying something that isn't antique! But take it all as a wonderful experience, have great fun and be good at bargaining.

Interesting place, huge with hundreds of stalls. If you are into tea pots and China souvenirs it's the place to go. For our trip, even though we didn't end up buying anything it's still interesting to browse.

I spent a couple of hours here on Saturday and really enjoyed it. It is mostly frequented by Chinese and the vendors and not aggressive like at tourist traps like the Pearl Market. I mostly walked around un-accosted unless I stopped to look. Even then I often had to approach the vendor to start talking. It had everything from old... More

Quite enjoyed walking around here, checking out the frenetic commercial activity. You can get pretty anything related to antiquities here, some interesting collections of vintage books/magazines too.

If your idea of fun is spending time in shopping malls buying knock off goods then don't go here. BUT if you want an authentic Chinese market, pulsing with vitality and an abundance of handicrafts, then this is a must do. It is huge and full of Chinese haggling. There is a predominance of the ethnic minorities from the South... More

It was founded in 1992 and it is the most popular of all the markets for handicrafts, fakes and real antiques, books, stoneware, militaria and whatever. It is a real shoppers and hagglers heaven. Keep a money belt and watch the wallet as people jostle each other and one could lose your money, I did not have an issue with... More

This is the place to go for unusual curios and Chinese souvenirs. You won't find t-shirts or snow globes, but you will find beads, old phones and typewriters, Christmas baubles, gorgeous Chinese art, teapots and vases - you name it! Close to the Panjiyuan subway station.

The market is massive, with sections for arts and crafts, antiques and craft products. There is a lot of similarity between stalls, so I assume that they all purchase from the same supplier. I saw one unique lock shaped like a fish and then exactly the same item on several other stalls, so probably a freshly made antique. There are... More

This market was a nice market. However do not buy until you have walked around once and had a look and asked prices. The first time, people say a very high price, then they go down and down and down. I found the shops at the back and on the left hand sides had the best prices. But even better... More

This place is crazy! So many vendors and so much to see. It is huge. Unlike the Pearl and the Silk Market, this is an actual Flea Market. There is art, jewelry, amazing pottery and cloisonné. The vendors do not hassle you like they do in the other markets unless you stop to look and then the bargaining begins! We... More
