HongQiao Pearl Market

HongQiao Pearl Market

Despite the name, HongQiao Pearl Market has more to offer than only its three floors of pearls and jewellery. On the ground floor you will find lots of MP3-players, digital cameras, web cameras, memory cards, DVD-players and various other electronics articles. There is also a large selection of watches and also some silk products, underwear, socks, Mao kitsch, flasks, etc.

On the second floor you will find brand wear, traditional clothes, more silk products, shoes, suitcases and handbags. Many of the shops here offer exactly the same products, which means there are good chances to push the price down if you are good at haggling.

The third floor is divided into two sections. The first section contains traditional Chinese art, ornaments, porcelain and chopsticks. It is in the second section that the Pearl Market proper begins. It stretches to floors four and five, where the shops are somewhat more exclusive than on the third floor.

If you have children, make sure not to miss HongQiao Toy Market, which lies behind the right side of the main building. This building also contains office equipment, Chinese tea sets, red lanterns and some sporting goods.

In May 2008 the market Tianya HongQiao Jewellery Market opened just behind the HongQiao Pearl Market. This new market mostly contains the same kind of products as the original HongQiao Pearl market.

Atmosphere and Prices

HongQiao Pearl Market is a market popular with both Chinese and international visitors from all the corners of the world. All shopkeepers speak English. Those on the first three floors tend to be quite persistent, whilst those on the top two floors are significantly less intrusive.
The asking prices are often quite high so it is important to haggle.

I am looking ofr LEGOS and need to know if the are good quality at the pearl market..where to buy for good prices

Joyce answered...

It's not real Lego, the real lego is more expensive there than in Canada, we noticed double the price. The fake lego is more difficult to put together and don't always fit together nicely.

Hello, please tell me about any shop selling Costumes for Animation and Comics Fair in Beijing. Cosplay - short for 'Costume Play' - is inspired by manga, anime or comics characters - originated in Japan and has grown in popularity among youth China and other countries. I want to buy 3 clothes. THANKS!

answered...

In the basement of the Pearl Market not far from Steven Electronic Store is a shop that makes and sells all kinds of cosplay wigs. They do not speak English but I had no problem dealing with them. I paid 100rnb for each wig I bought. As for anime and cosplay wear I didnt see any and I was looking for a OnePiece phone case and I was only able to find one after hours of inquiries, every few of the stores knew what I was looking for. I hope this was helpful.

I am leaving for China on Thursday and plan to spend a lot of time in the Hongqioa market. Do they sell North Face and Uggs?? Do you get a better price if you haggle in Chinese?

Joshua answered...

Hi. Yes, Hongqiao sells both North Face and Uggs. My experience is that the sellers think it's fun when you speak Chinese to them but it doesn't help very much. What helps is when you show that you are used to haggling and know that the opening price is ridiculesly high.

Ronald answered...

I agree, once they know you know...you can get them down in price, I also would recommend to come closer to closing time and know your price. Be ready to present your cash at your price, they use haggling as a way to prolong the process. Also tell them you work/live in Beijing, then you dont look like you are time pressured like most tourists

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi Kim!
The Hongqiao Pearl Market is open until 7:00 pm. Your hotel is located about 10 km or a bit over 6 miles away from the Pearl Market. With taxi the trip can take anything from 20 min to one hour depending on the traffic and what way the taxi driver chose. Hope you enjoy your stay in Beijing!

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi Jackline!
The market you are referring to is most probably Alien's Street.
Enjoy your stay in Beijing!

Jackline answered...

I've checked the map, seems the location behind Silk Market, how far is it from Silk Market, is it walking distance ?

Shopping in Beijing answered...

It's a 20 min walk from Silk Market to Alien's street, about 2 km (1.3 miles).

Hello!
I changed my plans so I will go from Dec 3 to Dec 10. I would like to know the time to visit the HongQiao Pearl Market and the Silk one... what else do you recommend?
thank you!

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi again!
It depends on what you are looking for. For clothes we can recommend the Xidan area which is completely different and according to us more interesting than the more "touristy" places such as HongQiao and Silk Market. There is absolutely nothing wrong with HongQiao and Silk market (when you have gotten used to the aggresive sellers) but Xidan is just more fun. Houhai lake and the Tea street are interesting as well but in a very different way from the traditional shopping areas.

Ivonne wrote...2011-11-09

Hi! I will go to Beijing on Chinese New Year and I would like to know if the stores are open on that date or if the commerce works on that date. I will arrive on January 20 until January 28. Thank you!

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi Ivonne!
The Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, starts at January 23rd. So for two days you should be able to shop at Hong Qiao Pearl Market as well as at the other markets. From the 23rd they will be closed for 5 days, then be open between 10 am to 5 pm for the next two days and after that it's back to normal.
Have a nice trip!

Valeria wrote...2011-10-16

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi Valeria!
Try the Feng Huo Lun Motorcycle store. We are told they have a wide selection of motorcycle related products such as helmets and we suppose they also have communicators. You can print the address to Feng Huo Lun Motorcycle or visit their website www.fhlmotor.com (in Chinese).

HongQiao Pearl Market - Beijing-- Is there any way to claim against shop number 221(electronics & phones) the lady in this shop is a real crook and fraudulent.
Is there addresses of the shops and managments of markets?

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi Arni,
If it's possible for you to go back to the shop then the lady will certainly give you the money back for whatever it was that you bought. That they sell fake products is a problem for buyers but contacting the management will probably not help much. We're sorry to say that shoppinginbeijing.com do not store the addresses of all shops, to contact them try: www.hongqiao-pearl-market.com

The weather is quite nice. A bit cold but spring is coming and it's about 15 Celsius (about 60 Fahrenheit). Visit third floor of this market or Yashow if you prefer a bit calmer sellers.

Where is the best place to shop for good digital camera's, leather boots (motorcycle type), and better quality cloths.

Vera answered...

Hi Nancy!
For digital cameras you should visit Zhongguancun but try to make sure that you get worldwide warranty if you are not staying in Beijing for a long time. And try to use it as much as possible while you still are in Beijing to make sure it works properly.
For leather boots try Silk market or Yashow market. Yashow have a bit better quality according to me.
Good luck!
