China is known for its pirated materials but I did not envisage that I would actually find one big mall with over 98% of fake stuff especially electronics. I bought 3 samsung fones at this market and they were really cheap and were working just ok. Three weeks later all fones were dead. Sellers literally decide prices depending on what... More

This market has 5 floors and different types of goods are sold on each floor. Here you have to bargain a lot as the salesgirls are very pushy and will not let you go. As this was on our last day in Beijing and as such lot of last minute shopping was done.

The place is very popular with tourists, but that also means astronomical prices for everything ranging from electronics to luggage that is available there. The forecourt food court has good options like unknown meat noodles 😃. Be careful of cab drivers outside, insist on travelling by meter.

Having had maybe to high expectations, this was dissapointing. Very pushy, and the majority of pearls is expensive even after bargaining. The silk marked is much better. Only visit if you are at the temple of heaven as it is across the street.

If you are looking for a high quality shop at the pearl market SHARONS is the place. They do no pressure, kind directions, quality work. Then pursuing bags and electronics is a plus as well... Great buys all around

You have to bargain hard still, but I found lower prices in this market. Not as comfortable as silk and more messy but therefore better value. Remember that all the goods are fake and you can get a handbag for 150 and shoes for 100. Warning!!! The taxi drivers rip you off outside this markets. They take your money and... More

I have built up realtionships with a number of the vendors in the market and I feel they are old friends now. I do not getting anything for referring these people, I would only like to... More

The Pearl Market can make for a really fun afternoon but it all comes down to your attitude. I took the advice of some of the reviews already posted and stayed polite, calm and polite. The sellers on the bottom floor are very aggressive but if you see something you like you can usually bargain down to an agreeable price.... More
