Silk Market - Xiu Shui, Beijing: 18 reviews and 24 photos
What was once an outdoor market, with a unique feel, interesting shops and architecture, is now a modern building, something quite common in the "modern" China- destroy the old for the sake of appearing new... I couldn't go in, mostly because it wasn't what I went there to see. I wanted to see the same market I visited years before. But no. Dangerous as wreckless progress can be, the Chinese move ahead full speed, building the New China- all part of the facade you'll see during the Olympics.
