Silk Marktet in Beijing / Peking

The silk market is one of the most famous market of Beijing / Peking. Until its closure in 2005 it was a street market in a narrow alley. The market is now in a four-storey building next to the original location of the market. Although the name suggests otherwise there is little silk sold here. Here you can find clothes, shoes, bags and sportswear for very low prices. Famous brands are (almost) all fake. You will have to understand the art to be able to haggle as much but as a foreigner you will almost always pay too much.

Would you buy a lot then it might be an idea to joining Joe . You earn its cost back quickly because he knows the minimum prices.

On this market are biside many tourists also many pickpockets. You are warned, they are very good at it.
