Where else can you see dried fruits, nuts, flowers, mushrooms, meat, fish, frogs and caterpillars, all edible and some of them delicious? Whatever I bought there was great, it is a very true, non touristic neighbourhood. Plus it's one of the very few places in...More

This is part of a massive market with 6,000 vendors spread over almost 3 acres! The government approved (& monitored) market sells medicinal herbs as well as medicines [East and West] as well as medical devices and health care products. The other parts of this...More

Combine a visit to the market with a stroll around ShaMian Island which is just across the road (a small matter of about 20 lanes of traffic). Metro station HuangSha (junction of lines 6 and 1) is next to the market. The station is part...More

Go visit, if you are nearby, but it is not worth travelling here from the other side of the city. We visited around sunset and found only a few shops selling traditional medicines. I'm not sure if there are more during the daytime. I wouldn't...More

This is why the Europeans came. This is a place with bustling little old alleys behind every old world commercial facade. Step in and have a wander.
