Pearls are my favorite jewel, so the second floor of this market is one of my favorite places in the city. I recommend April (up the escalator and around the right). She's got two booths and fair prices.
Beyond the pearls, there are hundreds of "normal Chinese market" shops. The vendors here are just like you'll find anywhere else, but you can get everything in this one market. Including custom clothing. Tony and Helen (third floor) are very good. They don't mess around on the prices. They give you their final price which is fair and the quality is good. They are very personable and speak good English.
