Several carpet shops in Erdaqiao: "Good selection of carpets" Top 5 Page for this destination Urumqi Shopping Tip by mke1963

Urumqi Shopping: 2 reviews and 1 photos

Many carpet shops on the second floor of the new Erdaqiao market buiding in Urumqi.
There are three names listed here, but they seem to work together to some extent in shops B65 and B48.
All three are very trustworthy and they shipped carpets to Beijing. All arrived in perfect condition.

Liu Zhencai: Shop B65
Tel: 13039453937

Ibrahim: Shop B48
Tel: 0991 2860755

Alim: Shops C89, C35 and C34
Tel: 13899833774

All three can arrange freight and insurance, but none speak any English at all.

What to buy: Khotan carpets are good value here, but since SARS Beijing prices are now comnpetitive when you factor in the freight charges.
I heard that Baoutou carpets come via Beijing though.

What to pay: Varies enormously. It depends on how well you bargain and how much they think you will pay. Expect to negotiate for half a day to get the best prices.

Address: Erdaqiao Market
Directions: The second floor (British first floor) on the left as you come up the escalator.
Theme: Home Furnishing
