City: Beijing

Municipality: Beijing

Country: China


Silk market is located in Beijing, Chaoyang district, near the China world trade center,
take subway 1, station called Yonganli. It is not a nice place for shopping, no a real China market, only for tourist. Beijing zoo wholesale market is much better than it.
Hi there,

In Beijing. Chaoyang district. Ask the taxi driver and he know where to go.
Silk Street Market is on Jianguomenwai at Yong An Li station on Line 1 of the metro. It is very busy and caters to the personal tastes of foreigners. You must bargain hard, for example if you are quoted a price of 1000rmb, you offer 50rmb and end up with the item for 100-200rmb. It is very centrally located and very easy to get to. I highly recommend it for a firsttimer in Beijing.
It's no longer a street or alley as it was in the old(er) days but it's a big 5 (?) story building with thousands of vendors selling all kinds of clothing and stuff. It's about 2 (or 3) blocks west of the China World trade Center on Jianguomen.
Silk Market is by subway line 1 at Yonganli Station, at the northwest corner of the cross.

Besides Silk Market, there are many other markets where you could have a good shopping, i.e. Yashow (subway line 10, Tuanjiehu Station, take northwest exit, heading west for 5 min, on your right hand side).
