Silk Street Tours – Beijing, China
About this place
Silk Street lies in Xiushui East Street off Jianguomenwai Street, near US Embassy. It is a good place to buy cheaper goods and the resident foreigners in Beijing come here frequently. Whatever you want to buy, like bags, shoes, handicrafts or sweaters, you can bargain with the owners.
The Xiushui Market provides a wide variety of goods, from souvenirs to branded apparel. As it is an interesting experience and provides a chance to mingle with the locals, I think all foreign visitors to Beijing would be well advised to drop by.
Items bearing labels such as Gap, Timberland and London Fog are genuine, the only difference is that browsers here can haggle prices down. You can buy a sweater for RMB60 or RMB70 (US$7.25 to US$8.50) here, which would cost twice as much in the nearby shopping centers.
Subway Line 1, Yonganli Station.
