Nothing to see or buy here, so skip it and go to the silk market instead if you want clothing and bags.

there are some great deals here if you know what to buy and what the real price is. Most tourists will overpay by 5x what they could have paid for the very same item. You can watch the chinese ladies sell the same purse for...More

The place is a lot less messy and crowded as one would think. If you need to buy tons of gifts to bring home, you can buy loads of scarves and many other things. Just make sure you will have the patience to haggle. You...More

I went here to buy gems and found awesome deals! So worth the time to wander the floors and feel free to negotiate and hold firm on what you are willing to pay!

Pearl Market is a huge indoor shopping mecca full of trinkets and fake goods. All the sellers are hawking and trying to get you to visit their booth. If you even make eye contact, watch out! They will not stop pestering you. If you decide...More

OMGoodness! So much fun but you have to go with the right mindset: (1) be prepared to deal with uber aggressive salesfolk (2) know your prices (3) must like to haggle. If not... this is not the place for you. Go early in the morning...More
