Hóngqiáo Pearl Market
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.
