You can find anything in this shopping mall, from clothes to electronics, jewelry, watches and China souvenirs. It might feel overwhelming and stressful with vendors pushing you to buy. Be prepared to bargain as the first price is usually at least 200% times of the...More

This is a great site for decompressing from sightseeing and sweating. There are many Western eateries and a Starbucks. Everything is air conditioned. I suggest to walk through the first time and experiment with bargaining. Make a mental list of what you are interested in...More

In my opinion, Pearl Market is so much better than the Silk Market. The one thing to be prepared for is the real hard sell including the best up selling Ive ever seen and experienced 😂
