"Silk Shopping!" Great Wall of China Tip by kentishgirl

Great Wall of China, Beijing: 98 reviews and 143 photos


Not for me at all! But lots of people were buying things here, Chinese Silk is after all world famous and super quality. We stopped here on a tour when we visited the Great Wall. You just know that these guys earn commission and it's quite pushy. Cool to see how silk dresses and things are made though!

There are heaps of these in China and you are sure to come into contact with one if you take an organised tour somewhere.
