Lonely Planet review

A block west of South Xizang Rd, this market street has over 100 stalls strewn along both Dongtai Rd and Liuhekou Rd. It’s a long sprawl of miniature terracotta warriors, Guanyin figures, imperial robes, walnut-faced luóhàn statues, twee lotus shoes, fake old tin cars, helicopter pilot helmets and Mao-era knick-knacks; generally only recent stuff such as art-deco ornaments (and later) are genuine. Get haggling (a good rule of thumb: if you like the look of something and can get a fair price for it, buy it for what it is and not as an antique).
