Good products to buy in China

We are stopping over in Bejing from Thailand. We'll have a 9 hour stopover, which commences at 6 am Sunday in February, 2006. What are common products purchased in China? What are some of the other things to do that are fairly close to the airport?

Erm, I guess you could do a trip to the Great Wall, if you don't want to go into Beijing city proper. If you don't mind going into Beijing city, check out the Panjiayuan market for some interesting shopping.

What is the Chinese name for this Panjiayuan market?

By the way, is there any website where I can find all the names and places in Beijing in Chinese.

Thank you and best regards

Panjiayuan = 潘家园

Most guidebooks have the Chinese characters, and there is a red and white Beijing Tourist map that has both English and Chinese Characters that you can buy in Beijing that is very helpful. I'm not sure of a good list on the internet.
