The market may have once been a good place for tourists to make a good bargain .... in particular rumor has it that many people went there for 'replica goods'. These days are gone. If you are interested in pearls (which you find in the upper floors), probably you can combine the market with a visit to the temple of... More

If you want to buy real pearls and don't want to bargain, there is a great place inside the Hongqiao Market, on the third floor (if my memory doesn't fail me) on the 50th spot. The guy who runs the place is excellent, and he speaks a fine english.

We had just one day in Beijing and our driver brought us here to shop. We bought candy to bring home for the kids, some Converse, a North Face type jacket for our granddaughter, some leather belts and my husband bought some scopes for his guns. You can cut at least half off what the original price is, and mostly... More

You have to be wary buying electrical gear, but the clothing, jewellery - fake and real - has some good bargains, just be choosy.

The Pearl Market is a must to place to go to buy stuff that looks real (but likely isn't) when in Beijing. As many of the other posters here have said you need the be fearless and bargain with the shopkeepers- as I told some South African tourists channel your inner American (I'm Canadian) and don't be afraid to insult...

This is a great place to grab some knock off gifts for friends and family. I live near Beijing and the Pearl Market is one of my first stops when I come to the city. I can always get some good deals here!

The market has plenty to offer, and most is high quality. Before you go in, choose a price you are willing to pay for things and stick to it. You must haggle the vendors down because they will try to rip you off. Max prices you should be paying is roughly 100rnb for trainers 250rnb for handbags 100rnb for clothing... More

Can find all sorts of electronically gadgets and accessories and cables here for good pricing. Its a must visit in Beijing. Always remember that price can be bargained. Beginning price is always ridiculous.
