Let’s get ready to negotiate!

Very very easy to get to the on the subway! Also, expect prices to be about 3X what you will end on. Example, if they start at 1,000 then they will take 300.

This market is amazing. Easy to get to. Safe and quite fun. You can spend hours here. Pricing is not the best. You can go to other markets for fake purses that you will get a MUCH better price at. So the think I would not buy here is the purses. Remember your best negotiating tool is silence. Every time... More

We've all heard that products in China are very cheap, but when you visit this place, the first impression is "This is not cheap", because the first price you'll get is because you are not local, so they think you have a lot of $$$ in your pockets... but, after a few tries, i've learned that you can even get...

The sellers are quite pushy but not intimidating. Managed to get some really cool stuff. Two pairs of yeezys starting was RMB 1400 managed get them for RMB 150. Lots of the shops sell the same junk so be prepared to walk away, if your price is reasonable they will get you, if it's too high you can just get... More

Less aggressive than silk street markets and with just as much if not more things. Just a quick note for visitors about taxis here. They prey on unsuspecting tourists who know no better and charge you around 5x-10x more than they should. Walk past them up the road slightly, and hail a taxi from the street, they will not rip...

I spent only 15mins at the Silk Street Market and left without buying anything. Things were expensive and customers were not treated well. At Hongqiao, you can hear the sounds of laughter and friendly banter between customers, tourists and sales people, across different shops. This is the place to buy electronics, souvenir shirts, bags and scarves. We went to explore... More

First time to this extremely busy market, different levels selling different kinds of goods. I had a wonderful time when staying at the Fanghua Pearls located on the 4F, which is a beautiful shop. The environment is spacious and the staff are very friendly, no selling pressure. The price is very reasonable, perfect gifts for my family and friends!

Beijing Hongqiao Pearl Market is very famous jewelry market in China. I strong recommend FANGHUA Pearls' store which is on the 4th floor in the market. We bought so many beautiful pearls and unique style jewelry. We love them so much. It has a lot of famous people's pictures hanging on the wall. We enjoy the environment, service and beautiful...
