To go to a place where you are bombarded by sellers and everything can be paid at less than a third of the original price (bargaining must be done), almost everything is copy.

I believe that many recent reviewers (below) explain this market well. In short, there are some authentic Chinese knits and silks on offer, as well as many bags of various quality and dubious origin. Caveat emptor. If you are shy about bargaining, you really should not indulge; you will feel (and most likely be) ripped off. That being said, if... More

We visited the Silk Market on a recent trip to Beijing. It's a fun shopping experience. One guidebook said it's the third most popular tourist site in Beijing after Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall. It's a shopping mall where people go to find knockoff designer goods, which is theoretically illegal. Our hotel gave us several warnings, primarily regarding being... More

The sales people are pretty rude and most just stick to their phone. Does not entertain the customers at all. The products are in varieties and worth choosing. No idea about the quality though and everything can be bargained. Thus be smart. Do not agree to their price as you can always bargain to lesser than 50% of what they... More

We had been lucky enough to travel to tangshan, xian and Tianjin before coming here. the prices were 10x the amount at the Silk Road market and even with bartering they still couldn't meet prices we saw elsewhere. We felt it was too hard to browse and enjoy it as before you even entered the shops the people would grab... More

Location is very nice. Centrally Located. Popular tourist place. But shopping is horrible. Very Costly. Seller ask very 5/6 times high price than they actually sell. I did not enjoy shopping over there. Other Beijing attraction nearby so any one can visit some of them easily.

If you have something in mind as a souvenir, this is a place to shop. However, it's not a traditional Asian market. When we walked in, we thought it was a mall. There is very little silk, mostly bad clothing made cheap to relook expensive. They have some good souvenirs, and they are willing to negotiate on price. There are... More

The mall have a huge variety of shops selling various products. I would say fashion and luxury products are the core. However, I am not very sure of the authenticity. You need to bargain dispite signs saying fix price. Be very sure before your purchase. I did not dare to go for any European or American branded products but instead... More

If you wonder through the hundreds of fashion outlets at Silk Street, one thing becomes evident. Fashion and style do not come by accident. If it did then the countless reditions on Silk Street would have surely produced at least a few notable original creations. No such luck. The theme here appears to be how to add as many features...
