Beijing Shopping



Silk Alley Market (Xiùshuǐ shìchǎng)

Silk Alley Market (Xiùshuǐ shìchǎng) Review

Once a delightfully chaotic sprawl of hundreds of outdoor stalls, the Silk Alley Market is now corralled inside a huge shopping center. The government has been cracking down on an increasing number of certain copycat items, so if you don't see that knockoff Louis Vuitton purse or Chanel jacket, just ask; it might magically appear from a stack of plastic storage bins. You'll face no dearth, however, of knockoff Pumas and Nikes or Paul Smith polos. Chinese handicrafts and children's clothes are on the top floors. Bargain relentlessly, check carefully the quality of each intended purchase, and guard your wallet against pickpockets.
