WHY WE LIKE IT
Even if we’re not in the market for a potted plant or packet of seeds, this is still a fun market to browse. The exotic plants are gorgeous (orchids are a specialty), and the bustling atmosphere is fun.
GOOD TO KNOW
Don’t forget that haggling is expected in markets like this, so don’t settle for the first price the vendor gives you. Not all sellers speak English, but you shouldn’t have much trouble making yourself understood–other shoppers are often eager to jump in and help with translation. If you’re buying lots of items from one stall, try to negotiate a package deal. This market is in the same location as the Jianguo Holiday Jade Market, where you can pick up jewelry, artwork, and souvenirs.
