Big mall with various stores offering mostly clothing, but also souveniers and random knicknacks. Prices are usual tourist trap level, and all the merchants are extremely pushy, following you around and constantly talking at you even if you ask to have some minutes to inspect the goods in peace.

Fewer merchants and less merchandise being offered than on my previous visit before the pandemic. Less counterfeit goods, due to complaints by manufacturers whose products are being copied. Good prices on some of the goods as these vendors have little overhead. I bought a few silk products.

I often travel solo because I really like it. On this trip I met some amazingly friendly people. I am a painter and designer. On my first day to the pearl market I met whole saler Xio, from double wings jewelry who had wonderful real gems. You can give him your design and it’s done the next day.

He even called a cab, paid for it by phone (I paid him back of course) and eventually he walked down with me to the cab.

Wirth a visit.

I was kind of shocked when I got there. The place is a ghost town. Half of the stores are empty and very few customers. No more friendly banter with the girls who tell me how smart and good looking i am.

Up side is that you can get better deals because of the lack of traffic.

Very luxury shopping - also some smaller shops with tourist stuff - you have to bargain a lot - not so interesting but ok for a short stop

Terrible - this place is not what it used to be famous for! Limited amount of shops open and none offering the 'goods' you'd be expecting. 'Everything has changed since covid' is what the shope owners told me.

In its endless quest to make China the most boring country on the planet, the Chinese government cracked down on this place and it is now a total waste of time.

If you’re reading this, DO NOT go here. It’s nothing like it used to be.

Unfortunately the market as we have known it for many many years is no longer. No more copy goods.
Only local brands. So no more fun going there. Government is no longer allowing to sell the fake goods at this place. As I write it is still sold at Shanghai science market.

I’ve been to this place after reading a lot that this building had many counterfeit goods, silk products and souvenirs. However, most of the stores are either closed or don’t sell these things anymore. The building looks like an empty museum. No one goes there anymore after the pandemic. We also bought a “silk” scarf that we later found out it wasn’t actually silk, just Polyester. They sell you these fake silk for a ridiculous price that you need to negotiate only to find out that it isn’t silk. They put a label saying “100% silk” glued to the original one saying “polyester”.
In sum, don’t go there. Even the silk is fake in the “Silk Market” !!

In 2012 Silk Street (Beijing) was a bustling indoor market with many small open units for buying anything but more importantly buying fake branded goods - most of good quality and cheap if you bargained well. Now sadly it is a shadow of its former self, with nearly half the shops boarded up and vacant. Yes the individual shops are more enclosed, well presented and light but no more branded goods with just a few exceptions. Most goods are unknown brands or deliberately mis-spelt brands such that they may be of a decent quality but there is no added-value in buying them. Indeed when I went to a shopping mall to buy western branded goods (at fixed prices) I even found these were more expensive than at home. Perhaps in some smaller popular cities there are shopping bargains to be had but sadly not in Beijing anymore.
