Artistic Beijing at its finest: Panjiayuan Market

This art, handicraft, and open-air shopping institution in Beijing have been on the weekend trippers list for some time. Wandering around the statues of Mao, finding copies of the famous Red Book, or negotiate until the very last Yuan on a wonderful trinket, filling one’s Saturday or Sunday with culture and kitsch is a day well spent.
Panjiayuan Antique Market blends the artistic with the culturally, the rare with the fake and the stylish with the authentic. While parts of the market are open daily, particularly the Saturdays and Sundays turn this southern-side Beijing institution into a trading beehive.
