“I loved it!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I went here yesterday with my husband and it was a great experience. I read reviews here...some good and some bad but took a chance since we needed to do dome shopping while in Beijing and I'm happy that I did. I got a nice set of pearls (2 different sets) and she made matching earrings and bracelets for each. I went on the 4th floor to Sharon's and didn't regret it. I worked my way down to the lower floors...a lot of aggressive people trying to sell you goods but if you know how to bargain, you van get a great steal on electronics, jewelry, purses, make-up, etc. we had to buy 2 back packs to carry everything back to the room. Wish that I could go back again today but will be traveling and leaving Beijing this afternoon! I say that this place is definitely worth a visit!!

“Nothing much”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

I have went there with high hopes to buy lots of goods but to my disappointment there isn't much things there. The sellers are aggressive. The quoted price are high, of cos you can negotiate for lower price but to me is meaningless. Why do I need to negotiate something I know they priced it high for your negotiation? Is it worth it ? Do you need it? Think yourself.....

“Ugly shopping experience”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Very aggressive selling and the need to negotiate aggressively, put me off shopping there, and it is not exactly cheap.

“Good market”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Amazing market with a huge variety of goods available. Pearls are a big part of this market and Ru PeiPei on the top floor, down a hallway just off the lobby. Bargaining is a way of life for the Chinese and they expect you to bargain.
