the market, though big, is meant only for locals. it only has very mundane items: clothes (not high fashion), work tools, electronic gadgets etc., from which there are dozens of stalls of each kind. not an attraction unless you're a local shop-owner looking for things to sell in your shop

Many sellers selling the same kind of stuff, mainly clothes, shoes, bags, cosmetics etc. Because it was sunday, a lot of normal shops were close, so not so bad experience. The mode did not attract me so much, so I bought only one package of socks for kids, four pairs, price about 4 euros. Have a little lunch in vietnamise... More

I was interested to know why there is no china town in Budapest, so when I hear of this "Chinese market", I was determined to take a look. You can get there by subway (Kőbányai Út 31) and walk (or like me took a random bus that was going towards the same direction .... saved a 1km walk!). What greeted... More

I love markets and tracking down interesting purchases however for me although this market was interesting due to its shear enormity! Sadly the merchandise was all the same and poor quality :( the food section was the most interesting.

If you have been in any Asian market in Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia etc, then you know what to expect. You can find any kind of things (clothes, kitchenware, electronics etc) at very low prices. Even things you would find in regular stores for at list double price! Its really good deal if you have the time to check out... More

Great destination if you live in Budapest and need cheap Made in China stuff - gloves, iPad cover, housewares, etc. Not really worth it otherwise. 10 minute tram ride from Blaja Luisa. Big expansive (not expensive) labyrinth of stalls on one side and a warehouse complex on the other that seems more inclined to sell things wholesale (i.e. packages of... More

We went here on our first morning (to get the shopping out of the way) and I did not enjoy it at all. I felt very nervous for the 20 mins we spent there probably for no reason. Shame on me not to have a word of Hungarian (or Chinese) so we were totally out of our comfort zone. 5... More

What an experience! Little streets with a variety of stuff, many chinese people who are playing card games, kids, locals en tourists. You can get here by metro, get off at "Kőbányai Út 31". The entrance is at te perron.

Lots of stalls, lots of varieties, cheap but quality isnt that bad. Had lunch in a chinese restaurant on a first floor, great food with friendly staff. All in all, worth a visit.
