Come prepared with a picture and a price you are willing to pay. Most quality merchandise is kept in the back room so you must show them a picture and they will take you back there. If they don't have it, most likely they will take you to another shops where they have it. Don't forget to visit Kyle Optical... More

Watched and listened to the demonstration on how to test pearls to see if they are real. Purchased some pearls and was so pleased to know they are real. Great price with discounts attached.

This is an indoor mall with many individual shops or stalls, for pearls and accessories. It is not one of those places with bus trip visitors and oyster demonstrations. It is mostly geared to locals with a small number of Western visitors. We found good deals with mild bargaining in the $10-200 range. Shop keepers mostly have limited English but... More

Here's where you come to buy all kinds of souvenirs, including jewelry, electronics, luggage, apparel. Really fun, make sure you negotiate, there are lots of vendors who sell exactly the same thing so you can get great deals.

Lots of things to be had here at good prices but you must bargain, dont buy things right away , they will bring the price to an acceptable amount . When shopping here I realized that you really have to know your prices. My co workers bought some Freshwater and Saltwater pearls, the SW pearls looked just like the FW,... More

My Mom was in town visiting and third place was recommended for her to shop for pearls. It has a lot of stores and they negotiate good deals for you. If you are coming on the subway, it is about a 15 mins walk from the Longxi Rd. Station on line 10. If you like pearls, you'll enjoy this place.

I have heard about Peal City Markets for a long time and was very keen to spend some time, which I did recently and I was certainly not disappointed. It was clean, bright and the air-conditioning was working a treat (37.5 outside).. The choice of product was very good with Pearls being a prominent attraction on the upper floors. So... More

I have shopped at Pearl City Market twice and both times have been thrilled with my experience. While my friend enjoys going "behind the door" and getting knock off bags, I do not personally care about "designer" labels. I am there for the jewelry. I have gotten beautiful necklaces, earrings, and bracelets for myself and friends and family. I have... More

I gave it an average review because on the plus side I scored big on Pearl necklaces from a stall located in the back left corner of a large room marked "for airline employees". They were not pushy. I had them string 10 identical necklaces for my friends as Christmas gifts- cost- $4.50 per necklace. The were beautiful- silver metal... More
