Fodor's Expert Review Yashow Market
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Especially popular among younger Western shoppers, Yashow is yet another indoor arena stuffed to the gills with low-quality knockoff clothing and shoes. Prices are slightly cheaper than Silk Alley, but the haggling no less essential—don't pay any more than Y50 for a pair of "Converse" sneakers. Also, don't be alarmed if you see someone sniffing the shoes or suede jackets: they're simply trying to see if the leather is real. On the third floor, Wendy Ya Shi (No. 3066) is the best of the many tailors on offer, with a basic suit usually starting out at around Y1,500 (including fabric) after a good haggle. The Lily Nails salon on the first floor offers inexpensive manicures and foot rubs if you need a break.
