Panjiayuan Market, in Chinese is pan1 jia1 yuan2 jiu4 huo4 shi4 chang3.
The Beijing Panjiayuan Folk Culture Market (or the Panjiayuan Antiques Market) is a very popular and colorful market and opens everyday (the best days are Saturdays and Sundays).
It covers an area of 4.85 hectares and is situated in No. 200 West of Panjiayuan Bridge and south of the East Third Ring Road (between Panjiayuan Bridge and Huawei Bridge), in the Chaoyang district.
If you especially like antiques and collectibles and also arts and crafts, this is the right place to go. I can assure you won’t get bored as there are about 3,000 stalls to visit. This market is not only the China's biggest collecting and distributing center of art and craft articles but also the largest of Asia. Its merchandises are known for being the cheapest of its kind in Beijing as well.
What makes this market so interesting?
Anything unimaginable you can imagine you will be able to find here.
What makes it really interesting is the (Chinese) traditional cultural aspect. In the ethnic section you will see nice items ‘imported’ from almost all parts of China since most of the stallholders are people who come from their villages, towns, ethnic minorities to sell their goods in this market.
Should I bargain?
You must bargain down the offered price.
What to pay: From a few bucks to several hundreds, it has a lot to do with your bargaining skills.
