Visited Panjiayuan on a Sunday afternoon, this is a great market to find antiques and other interesting curios, be prepared to bargain hard! There are facilities and cafes so it’s just a great day out in Beijing!

This is one of the largest flea markets (in terms of number of stalls) I've ever been to in my life. Located about 35 minutes by subway (with one change #1 West to the #10 South, exiting at the Panjiayuan station), it's simply massive. There...More
