This market literally has everything that you can imagine.


Why visit this place ?

Numerous products or I must say "Countless".
Spread in more than 5KM in diameter, one of the biggest markets in China.
Spending 2 minutes at every shop, will take more than a year to cover the entire market. That's a technical true fact.
Extraordinary infrastructure.
You can get latest iPhones for dirt cheap as low as 5,000 INR (from people with 2 or 3 iPhones in their hands who'll approach you as soon as you notice them standing with iPhones) further its your negotiation skills. They are locked, without box and probably stolen.
Super friendly staff.

What's bad about this market?

Really Really long queues of shops.
Every product has several quality grade and are priced accordingly. Hence good eye for quality standard is necessary.
Major staff does not understand english.
If not careful, they sell very expensive.

USEFUL TIPS:

Keep Google Translate turned on for your convenience.
Only buy above mentioned cheap iPhones if you like to live on the edge & do check them first if they are genuine.
Have VPN clients installed on your devices (Phones, tablets or laptops) as Google, Facebook, Gmail etc don't work in China.
Research about interested products to buy beforehand.
It is going to take time to see this market, keep munchies and drinking water handy.

What did I like the most ?

Wide variety of products.

A city in the middle of China nowhere. But you can see it advertised in Dubai airport.
The markets are good. Once you find your product area, 000's of stalls will display mostly the same goods.
It's about price, delivery, good feeling!!!

Never a bad choice to come here to look at the wonderful selection of made in China goods. But take note that the minimum order quantity for different categories of goods.

This place is the commodity market of China, practically every chinese made product is here. You can't finish this place in a week because it is huge and I think there are at least 70,000 shops here.

You cannot buy here, it is actually a booking shop where they send to your forwarder. If you dont know chinese dont come here without a translator, you might get the wrong products.
