Xidan Area

Xidan Area

When you realise that Silk Market, Yashow Market and HongQiao Market all have the same supplies, it's time to try out the locals' own shopping districts. This is where the inhabitants of Beijing gather to pick up their gear.

In the northern parts of the "Xidan Beidajie" street there are lots of small shops. The area also has several markets and malls. We know from experience that it's very possible to spend whole days here and still have ground left to cover. Start by visiting the Xidan Outdoor Market, which actually is largely indoors. The prices here can be very low and the supply of clothes and accessories is not too bad either. Then visit one of the larger markets east or north of this area and remember to always bargain, on Outdoor Market too.

If you are looking for more exclusive shopping, a good choice is Grand Pacific, located west of Xidan Beidajie.

Salespeople and atmosphere

Some salespeople know a few relevant phrases in English, but most of them don't.

Some of the markets can be very crowded on evenings and weekends.

I heard there is a wedding mall called "New Wedding Shopping Center" where they sell wedding dresses and wedding accessories (e.g., veils, favors, etc.) in Xidan. Is it in the same area? Where is it and how do I get there?

Tanya answered...

Late reply but I know there are many wedding stores along Xidan street to the north of the mark on the map above.

Hi Mogi!
Yes, Xidan has some big malls where you will find brand names. You can also check out the malls at Wangfujing or The Village at Sanlitun.

I'm interested in visiting China but need to know where is the best place to buy the latest fashion in ladies clothing and footwear (not name brand). I'm looking for inexpensive but good quality items. I only speak English. Can you help?

Ray answered...

Seems like Xidan is what you are looking for. Not many sellers speak english but your next best choice is a tourist market with english speaking sellers but low quality "name brand" products.

Hello, my name is David and I will arrive in Beijing next saturday and I stay there just for a week, I wanna know how is the best places to buy electronic things like notebooks & cameras (I dont wanna pay a lot of noney, just a good price)

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi David,
Check the Zhongguancun area for electronics. Prices are lower than the US and Europe but don't have too high expectations.

We leave for Beijing in 2weeks and my girlfriends want me to bring back Coach/Guess purses & designer sunglasses and my male friends want Tommy Bahamas shirts - which market is my best choice for quality knock-offs and how much should I expect to pay? I only have 1 shopping day!

Karen answered...

I would suggest Silk market or Yashow market. Both are good at knock-offs but be aware of the sales ladies, they can be really pushy and irritating. Start your haggling at about one tenth of what they ask for. Good luck!

Hi, I'll be flying to Beijing in August for 4 months. I am female, 1.67m tall and a UK size 16. Will I be able to find any clothes big enough to fit me at the market?

Daniela answered...

Hi Niamh, Xidan is not the best place to shop for us that are larger than an average Chinese girl. You can go there and see but it will be easier to find something at Silk Street or Yashow. Good luck!

Hi i intend to visit beijing soon please inform me the prices of kids clothes for age 5 and 8

Irene answered...

Hi Tamina. It all depends on what clothes you want. Prices range from 10 yuan for small shirts to 200-300 for real brand name clothing. If you are looking for cheap children clothes i am sure you will have no problem finding it here in Xidan, just stay away from exclusive malls like Grand Pacific

Asya wrote...2008-10-20

Thank you for information. I am staying in Xidan district amd planning 1 day for shopping. What places would you recommend to go to? I'm interested in clothes and fur coats (medium to high range)

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi Asya! Xidan is a great place for shopping and you can check the markets on the map at Printable version.... For furs we would suggest the Russian district at Yabaolu. Here is an address for Furs at Yabaolu. However we don't recommend anyone to buy furs because of the beastiality in the Chinese fur Industry but we wish you a nice stay in Beijing.

Bennis answered...

Hello, if i remember well. I bought Furs from pearl market.
I would like to buy some more. do you have any contact? Tkx :)
