A fun way to pass a few hours.

If you enjoy the sport of bargaining then Silk Street is a place to visit. Easy to get to using the subway system. Go up at exit A1. Go in knowing what you are buying is a fake and you won’t be disappointed. The vendors aggressively try to get your attention and will bargain, bargain, bargain once they have it. I wasn’t disappointed with any of the “deals” I made, and I certainly enjoyed the bargaining.

Passed the time in the evening

It was on our list of things to do on our first night, to stay awake, we needed new glasses but between me and you could have got the same price in the U.K. , but they where made in 24 hours. We did not buy anything else but glasses have been too better places then this in Thailand and bigger . You don't need a tour guide the underground stops outside , down the side outside across the road we found a nice small restaurant they served soup for about $2.00 really yummy .
Would I go again , no waste of time

What has happened to the market shopping experience?
Apr 2017 • Family
Went expecting cheap markets, or at least markets where you could get good deals.

But got a market that has an over inflated ego. Almost if they are trying to rebrand this from markets to a high end mall. Same thing is happening at a lot of the markets we went to Yashow included.

Prices at silk st were marked were very high, absurdly so. 20-50% over austtalia retail prices. Which then just reduced out interest to even go into the shops, let alone haggle.
Considering you didn't know if these were legit or not a discount of 80% or more was needed just to be interesting.
Too much effort. Didnt buy anything
Some of the taylors might have been ok.

Go to zoo markets.

Beijing, what are you doing to your markets?

This place is so cool!

This place is amazing! There are so many different things to buy in this place and so many different shops with clothes and souvenirs(mostly) etc. But if you are visiting here I should tell you that BARGAIN is a MUST! Because they ALWAYS accept your lower price and you'll just walk out with so many shopping bags! Silk street is absolutely worth visiting for shopping for your needs!

Good place to bargain
Jan 2017 • Family
Went today to this departmental store. Taxi will cost you about 120 yuan from the airport. Being a family of 4 with big kids it was not that bad. Took about 30mins to get there You can really bargain for cheap here. Start at the bottom level and work your way up. Whatever price they give you drop to 10% immediately. That's where the negotiations start. Settle between 20-30% on the original price quoted. Good experience and don't let the ladies play on your emotions.

Key word bargain
Sep 2016 • Business
Don't take anything at first price. You can get it for over 10 times the price cheaper. Some store people are a bit aggressive. You can get alot of fake brands here but I love the silk scarves.

Good if you are looking for fake handbags but be prepared to bargain bargain bargain. Marked prices are extortionate for fake bags but you have to bargain. Can get Michael kors bag for 100yuan.

Silk street. Not worth it at all. Cheaper at home. Most of our direct factory outlets at home would have the same product and at an equivalent cost, The bargain price is about ten percent of the asking price. Set up in the diplomatic part of town, so the expectation is that there is lots if $$$ around. Don't waste your time.

Biggest scam
Jul 2015
Don't go here! Complete waste of time. Prices are way too high for fakes and no quality what so ever . The sellers expect you to pay $400 for a knock off designer bag what a joke! Don't believe any of them and their fake stories.

Fakes Street
Apr 2015 • Friends
Almost all things selling in that building are fakes ( we can kindly say replica) but yet very expensive. If you are the person who don't know how to haggle, do not go there. Over 2000 RMB for one fake replica Coach bag, it is equal to US$ 327. 100 RMB for one silk scarf which is only worth 10-20 RMB at other places. Do not waste your time there.
