Came here because I wanted to get some Christmas gifts. Clothes sellers are aggressive, pearl sellers not so aggressive. If you need pearls, I recommend Sally, stall 69. She beat the price that another seller let me walk away from. Just remember, they will not make a sale where they lose money even if you think you got the deal... More

You must bargain - what ever your told go under 50% and then come back they will cry tears that you cant do that but it is all in the game - be careful of what you buy - some good pearls on the lower level but you need to know what are real and not plastic. The 4th floor... More

You can buy here a lot of cheap clothes, bags, toys and jewellery, but the brands are all fake. And you have to bargain hard to get a good price. After 5 minutes walking there I found it annoying when the salespeople trying to get my attention. But on the fourth floor there are some genuine Jade shops. With different... More

You hear about these knock off markets in China and this one it the epitome of markets. The multiple levels of crazy open shops and vendors. There's a deal to be had if you have the stomach for the haggling and crowdedness

Very very easy to get to the on the subway! Also, expect prices to be about 3X what you will end on. Example, if they start at 1,000 then they will take 300.

This market is amazing. Easy to get to. Safe and quite fun. You can spend hours here. Pricing is not the best. You can go to other markets for fake purses that you will get a MUCH better price at. So the think I would not buy here is the purses. Remember your best negotiating tool is silence. Every time... More

We've all heard that products in China are very cheap, but when you visit this place, the first impression is "This is not cheap", because the first price you'll get is because you are not local, so they think you have a lot of $$$ in your pockets... but, after a few tries, i've learned that you can even get...

The sellers are quite pushy but not intimidating. Managed to get some really cool stuff. Two pairs of yeezys starting was RMB 1400 managed get them for RMB 150. Lots of the shops sell the same junk so be prepared to walk away, if your price is reasonable they will get you, if it's too high you can just get... More

Less aggressive than silk street markets and with just as much if not more things. Just a quick note for visitors about taxis here. They prey on unsuspecting tourists who know no better and charge you around 5x-10x more than they should. Walk past them up the road slightly, and hail a taxi from the street, they will not rip...
