Beijing is one of the world's modern cities, with nearly every type of
good and service available.
Shopping at open-air markets is an experience not to be missed.
Beijing's most popular markets are the Xiushui Silk Market, Panjiayuan and Pearl
Market where you can find antiques, porcelain, lacquer ware, jade, carpets,
silk, paintings, calligraphy scrolls, handicraft, and embroidery.
Flea markets operate on weekends throughout
Beijing. Night markets usually conduct business at twilight, and bargaining is
only possible with private vendors in street stalls.
