As one of the greatest cities in the world, this metropolis also happens to house the best markets on the planet, hands down. The one’s that we recommend when touring this magical city are the Julong, Tianlegong and the Shiji Tianle markets As a wholesale market, which is composed of seven markets, the most popular among the group is Julong market. Second in popularity is the Tianlegong market and of course, last but not least is the Shiji Tianle market. Be prepared to bargain when you go though, as everything is super cheap there with plenty of selections to choose from. Prices for shirts, tops, jeans, pants, skirts and even Jewelry will cost anywhere from 10-50 RMB. In some places, however, they can be a bit more expensive, but still comparatively cheaper than most places. Although, ninety percent of goods are within the price range previously listed. Weekday mornings are the best times to visit after a nice cup of coffee and your wallet in hand. Be prepared to spend a few hours walking around. There are also various places to eat in the area including a great Japanese eatery and a Mexican Restaurant for dining afterwards.
