Lots goods but not antiques... You can find whatever you want: Clothing, paper puppets, wooden sculptures, fake jade necklaces, paintings, reconstructed stuff and more. Worth to have a visit if you can. The market is huge, so get ready to spend around 3 hours if you wanna see all. This market closes early, and its recommended to visit during mornings.... More

....it seems. That said, don't expect to find real antiques, ie at least a hundred years old, here, but you will find a good selection of fun, different souvenirs, and an increasing amount of books on pretty much all aspects of collecting chinese arts. Haggle hard!

I adore antiques so perhaps I had high expectations of this market. Like many markets in China I have found that many of the sellers are selling the same thing. So in short this market is a nice place to go if you are in Beijing for a while, it is a nice place to potter around for a hour... More

This is one of the biggest outdoor markets I have been to. Obviously it is expected with markets that people sell a lot of the same things. But this place is ridiculous, all anyone sold was gems and beads and bracelets. The whole market could have been condensed down to 3 stalls. Not worth your time if you are in... More

Here is my regular check point during my stay in Beijing. Is always full of arty and interesting stuff. Is huge here, with different columns. My fave part is the tin toy stall, they are always cute and flashback your childhood memories. I had bought so much here, the tin toys, vintage camera, 2nd hand english design books in super...

I went there once before and had to re-visit this trip. It's more of a jade market, but there's many other things to be found there. I personally took the subway (exit ???) and it was right there. Plan on spending some time there as you'll find row after row of stalls selling so many things.

I wouldn't make a trip here on purpose again... it's perhaps intriguing the first time to see the amount of goods being sold. But the quality isn't high and it's not that worthwhile to bring home.

Got there by subway at Panjiayuan Station but the signs weren't very clear. The market is on exits B or C on the right side of the Mercedes Benz Building. Lots of stuff, it is like a flea market of sorts, and I didn't buy anything as I didn;t want to fill up my house with chinese statues and posters/... More

Was a great market and easy to find from the subway. We ended up buying some artwork after a bit of haggling and lots of cheap imitations but as long as you have your wits about you it's fine!

It's a 200 meter walk (5 min) from exit A of the Panjiayuan metro station on line 10. The market is expansive (not expensive) covering a large open field. One area is open-air with roof covering that is mostly stalls selling polished stones and other curio handicrafts. Another open air area with no roof covering (dirt markets) that seems to... More
