“Always popular”

Saishang Old Street
Reviewed August 21, 2018

This kind of street is common in China. Some may be longer and sell more variety of souvenir and have more eating stalls. Saishang Old Street could be one of the shorter ones. You will finish it from start to end within 10 minutes if you have no interest of buying anything. For tourists, it is the place where they can finish the smaller notes before returning home with handful of souvenirs for relatives and friends. It's crowded and seemed to be popular there.

This is literally just an alley that has about 20 stalls and small shops for you to buy souvenirs. Nothing you can't get in a dozen other places around the city. Ronny Fang.

Old street has always been a culture to most of the China cities, however, this one actually stands out
The souvenirs to bring home are at a very reasonable price, although this is still a tourist place, they didn't over price it like other cities.
We have bought some stones, painting, necklace
Personally, a must go place before leaving Inner Mongolia

If you are tired after visiting Da Zhao Temple, then this street will offer a different experience for tourists who wish to buy souvenirs to bring home.
Many similar products are sold from stall to stall. You will need to bargain for better prices. It is advisable to co-purchase with fellow tourists for better bargains from the same stall. It is basic courtesy not to touch the items on display unless you have a genuine interest to buy them. Among the things to buy from this street are: Mongolian costumes, milk-related products, and handicraft jewellery and accessories. This street can be completed within 45 minutes if you are a genuine buyer, otherwise 15 minutes if you are there for sightseeing.
