"I dont kow about having any..." Markets Tip by Chuck_Cotten

Markets, Beijing: 6 reviews and 5 photos

I dont kow about having any local knowlege but the best idea we had was to take a cab about 15 minutes away from the hotel and just start walking around. We found many street markets with great stuff. I was concerned about the language but most merchants with have a calculator which to haggle with you on. The student population (under 20) generaly speak some decent english but they are a bit shy with it.
