Hóngqiáo (Pearl) Market information
Besides a cosmos of clutter (shoes, clothing, cosmetics, electronics and bags), Hóngqiáo is home to more pearls than the South Sea. The range is huge (freshwater, seawater, white and black) and prices vary incredibly depending on quality. The 3rd floor has the cheaper pearls, mostly sourced from Zhèjiāng province, as well as other jewellery and jade.
The better-quality, pricier pearls can be found on the far more hushed 4th and 5th floors, where there’s a roof terrace that offers an excellent overview of the Temple of Heaven. Prices are generally high, while the vendors, who all speak some English, are canny bargainers.
