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

I came to Beijing solo for vacation and while I did the usual must see spots (Great Wall, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City), this was suggested from Lonely Planet and I will say I agree- it was a great find! Easy to get to on the Subway Line 10 that takes you right to the market (you have to ask... More

There is a lot of variety, and some good deals if you know how to negotiate. Don't be mislead and think anything is really old or a true antique. Buy is you like the item and know it is a recently made copy.

We took a taxi from the hotel to this market and spent two hours roaming around and looking at everything. There are more authentic Chinese goods to buy, and it is always good to remember to barter - go for at lease 50% less than the asking price. I always try to be fair and think of an item's worth...
