Panjiayuan Antique Market in Beijing

Panjiayuan is a market where people trade in antiques, handicrafts, and art pieces such as paintings. It is more like a flea market, with a large number of peddlers with a great variety of goods. The hard part is, of course, to determine what is worth what. To peoople who just want to buy a few things to decorate their rooms, this probably does not matter all that much. So either you know what you're doing or you just do not care about the authenticity of what you're buying - if the price is right. Panjiayuan is located in the southern part of Beijing.
