We absolutely loved this place. It is brilliant shopping and is a place where you can buy absolutely anything. There is such a variety of goods from tourist bits to "designer" goods - overall something for everyone. However, you must be prepared to barter over price as everything starts out very expensive and you can get the price down to... More

just in front of the tiantang, Pearl Market is the place if you need to find any kind of souvenir from china. Bargain everything you would like to buy starting from half the price the seller is proposing.

What I really love about these markets is the large variety of brands and products all under one roof and of course the absolute engaging experience you have with each stall holder. I have been going to these markets off and on for over 15 years, and the big improvement has been the stall holders English language skills. The other... More

Is not easy to understand that this market is dedicated to western people that believe to find great bargains, but it's still funny and pleasant to walk through the stalls selling everything you can desire about jewels, dresses, souvenirs, digitals... Consider that fist price normally is at least doubled!

As it is just in front of the Temole of Heaven, it is not that bad to go and have a look. But as soon as you get in you realise it is just one more Chinese mall with the only difference that you can bargain. It is not worthwile. It is a place with no good feelings and not... More

forget the lower floors full of all items available in the other markets in Beijing: take your time in the 4th and 5th floor here you can find a huge selection of pearls and other jewllery for reasonable price. If you are looking for something more valuable just besid hongqiao there is Tianya jewllery market, but prices are quite high

I really enjoyed an afternoon here whilst in Beijing, and bought a mixture of souvenirs and clothes. As other reviewers have said, never accept the price you're first told. Be firm if you're not interested in a product. And don't get carried away - set a limit as to how much you've got to spend during your visit. The food... More

Do your homework, decide what you are prepared to pay and don't change your mind when faced with good natured, professional bargainers who have no interest In a long term relationship. That way, you will come out with well priced freshwater or saltwater pearls at a significant discount to what you would pay in Europe or USA. Allow yourself to... More

This is on the other side of the road from The Temple of Heaven. There is a food court at the bottom and easy places to eat like Subway and Starbucks. The market doesn't just sell pearls. There are fake handbags, footwear, digital products such as Beats headphones and Chinese style products. I bought two handbags and paid about a... More
