|Yaxiu Market, Chinese Medicine Class, Lunch, Pearl Market, Wangfujing, Tea Ceremony
Be picked up from your hotel at around 8:30 am.
First go to visit Sanlitun Yaxiu Market. Yaxiu Market is Beijing's clothing Bazaar. You can find a lot of clothing and daily necessities on the first and second floor. Good tailors can be found on the third floor. The fourth floor is a fine hunting ground for souvenirs and gifts -- there are kites from Weifang in Shandong, calligraphy materials, army surplus gear, tea sets, and farmer's paintings from Xi'an (laughably claiming to be originals by Pan Xiaoling, the most frequently copied artist). The basement and the first two floors house a predictable but comprehensive collection of imitation and pilfered brand-name clothing, shoes, and luggage. The market is just west of Sanlitun Bar Street, is open daily from 9:30am to 8:00pm.
Proceed to restaurant to have lunch and a short rest.
Then go to visit Wangfujing Street. It is Beijing's busiest commercial area and is normally full of shoppers. Besides many shops and restaurants there is an very large many storied mall. Prices are reasonable in this area as many stores are government owned. The street has recently been completely renovated. The area is a good area to shop in as the visitor will not be cheated or overcharged. No bargaining here, but lots of fun. The weekend is the most crowded time.
