The place is a lot less messy and crowded as one would think. If you need to buy tons of gifts to bring home, you can buy loads of scarves and many other things. Just make sure you will have the patience to haggle. You...More

I went here to buy gems and found awesome deals! So worth the time to wander the floors and feel free to negotiate and hold firm on what you are willing to pay!

Pearl Market is a huge indoor shopping mecca full of trinkets and fake goods. All the sellers are hawking and trying to get you to visit their booth. If you even make eye contact, watch out! They will not stop pestering you. If you decide...More

This is a place where knockoff items are sold. Often hidden away. Asking price for “cashmere” scarf, 90 settled on 10. Asking price on necktie 90, settled on 10. Be aware that everything is fake. Know that whatever they tell you it is intended to...More

It is still a great place for knock offs but hone your bargaining skills. And remember you are buying knock offs so quality is not like the real ones. “You get what you pay for”. There is a whole 5 floor building of pearls and...More

Meh.. it was okay. There were many stores, but nothing that was must have. We ventured into the basement/food court. There was a strong odor of either raw sewage or hot garbage. Needless to say, we didn't dine down there. If you're at the temple...More

This market is smaller than the Silk Market and a little bit more basic looking, but acceptable if you want to look around. Same as the Silk Market, keep in mind that some sellers can get really angry in a second. While I was trying...More

Shopping in Pearl Market is absolutely bonkers. Be prepared to haggle and bargain hard. Shopkeepers are ruthless and trained to dupe tourists into buying expensive goods. They speak nearly all languages..English, French, German, Spanish. You’ll find shoes, bags, watches, toys, arts and crafts, electronics and...More
