  • After visiting the new Silk market this place was bliss. It's not overcrowded and is well laid out. The stall holders expect to haggle but seem good humoured about it and aren't pushy and aggressive. ...  read more »
  • Good market with reasonable wealth, unfortunately it's becoming a little too neatly, with more official stores. It is still possible to get counterfeit goods at a reasonable money, make sure you get prices negotiated down, often you can get goods to 1/10 of the starting price.

  • If you like smlouváte and shopping, this is the place for you. Here you can find everything from clothing to electronics, pearls. Most of the things you will find here are fakes, but also nice souvenirs such as tea sets.

  • It's a great place to visit and spend a few dollars. But buyer beware, you generally get what you pay for. Electronics are best purchased from Po + Liz in the "New Pearl" Market just behind this building. 4th floor. Lulu Lemon and UnderArmour from stall 151, and other clothing from Sharon's on the second floor.
  • This place is another one of those tourist traps, which is totally OK if you're trying to buy some souvenirs for friends & family at home. The thing I really disliked about this place was that sellers here were way too pushy and sometimes even got angry when I bartered with them (not bartering is absolutely ridiculous here, since prices generally start at 10 times the normal selling price). There's a bunch of other tourist places in the area, so maybe just go there instead.
  • Dont be cheated by the low price. (Or maybe thats what you want? Lol
  • If you're looking to go shopping for quality pearls at an affordable price go to Nancy's Pearls (fourth floor)! She is sweet, genuine, willing to negotiate, even handed with prices, and ensures that her customers get exactly what they want and know what they are getting. She will take as much time with you as you need to make sure you understand what you are buying and are comfortable with your price range. Her English and customer service is top tier and her product beautiful and excellent quality!
  • The pearls are fresh and they string them into necklaces in front of you.
