Nice market

This is a very nice market with lots of things. Easy to get to by metro. 200 meters from the station of the same name. Take exit B and walk 1-200 meters westbound.

We arrived two hours prior to closing and several vendors were starting to pack for the day, perhaps since it was getting dark and cold. We saw many vendors with a wide variety of beads, jade, jewelry, woodwork, pottery, metal sculptures, paint brushes, and boxes. We did not see any clothing, furniture, or electrics. After 5 or 10 minutes the... More

The antique part of the market, save some pieces, the rest tend to be fake. However, seeing the part of the market dedicated to stones, especially the jade, is quite unique and the textiles are few but very well handwoven. There are some artisan shops which are very good. It is a very large market so time is required to... More

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.
