Pearl market surprised me with light and quite calm atmosphere! First floor you'll find electronics and related stuff. Second floor clothes, some shoes, bags and cashmere scarfs. Quite good quality but bargain hard, please don't fall for their sad faces or phrases like "I'm loosing money!!!" Favorite sentence of course is " it's a good price ". It is very... More

We visited the market in the afternoon. We went more for entertainment than to buy anything. We haggled and bought a couple of ornaments for about 40% of the starting price. I wouldn't buy anything of material value unless you know what you're buying. It was an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours

I guess that put me off buying as I cannot imagine trying to bargain it down to Rmb200 let alone to Rmb80!! There were jewellery,... More

My daughter (8-year old) and I first went to this place about 3 years ago. She has been mentioning this place as one of her top Beijing sites since then. It was such a fun place for kids like her age to buy "real jewelry" per her age. It's conveiently accessible by subway. During last visit, she spent 100 yuan... More

Spent hours shopping here. You can find anything and everything here. They mark up really high so make sure you bargain really well.

Lots of knockoffs, some good, some crap. Everything you MUST bargain, usualy 1/5 of their asking price. Gotta be in the mood or else you get tired of the constant badgering.

A United Airlines stewardess suggested we go here for items from souvenirs to other products. It is 4 floors that has 2 upper floors of pearls and jade for sale of varying quality. The bottom 2 floors have everything else at excellent prices as long as you bargain. Very worthwhile and easy to get to.
