Panjiayuan Antique Market, Beijing
(3.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Shop for arts, crafts, and antiques at Panjiayuan Antique Market, a bustling market with around 3,000 traders selling their creations and collections. Find little treasures, some centuries old, including calligraphy, porcelain, Cultural Revolution literature, religious ornaments, and ornately carved furniture. Prepare to haggle: it's common for vendors to bump up prices to around 10 times their actual worth at first offering. With up to 50,000 visitors a day, the market gets lively and hectic even though it's set over a large site. Plan and take your time, so you don't find yourself rushing into a deal that you might regret. Our Beijing vacation planner makes visiting Panjiayuan Antique Market and other Beijing attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The market is massive, with sections for arts and crafts, antiques and craft products. There is a lot of similarity between stalls, so I assume that they all purchase from the same supplier. I saw one...  more »
  • This market was a nice market. However do not buy until you have walked around once and had a look and asked prices. The first time, people say a very high price, then they go down and down and down. ...  more »
  • A very interesting place. It is best to choose a ok h. 10:00 when they are already all sellers. You can buy beautiful things: porcelain, coins, articles made of wood or brass. I advise you to bargain, we were able to buy the stuff about 60% cheaper in relation to the starting price:)

  • It's a 200 meter walk (5 min) from exit A of the Panjiayuan metro station on line 10. The market is expansive (not expensive) covering a large open field. One area is open-air with roof covering that is mostly stalls selling polished stones and other curio handicrafts. Another open air area with no roof covering (dirt markets) that seems to sell more cultural themed items. It's a wonderful place to shop. Bring your bargaining skills. If you don't speak Chinese, a calculator is passed back and forth. The area is flat so pushing a stroller or wheelchair is convenient.
  • It is a big market with a lot of goods, a great place to buy souvenirs .
  • It's a mixed market - antique ceramics, stones and other decor related products.
  • 10/24/2009 is a venue for visiting antiques. Visit the holiday comes City Hall square. Very interesting street vendors for small private business. People buy a hit tune. Buy accessories from us no confidence in authenticity. My wife liked the mother of Pearl inlay chest of drawers in a permanent furniture shop to sell fast and furious. Be sent from Japan to cheaper and discounts. In the Hall was a great restaurant. Are strong we didn't. As well as books, 10 minutes. I went by taxi.
