Traditional Goods Favorites Among Foreign Travelers in Beijing

Jan. 31 , 2007

According to the latest statistics from the Beijing Tourism Administration, travelers arriving China spent US$1,033, or about 8,000 yuan, per person last year in Beijing. In addition, the income of foreign exchange from tourism surpassed US$4 billion for the first time.

According to the Beijing Evening News report, Ms. Li, An English tour guide with considerable experience, revealed that silk, pearl and cloisonne are the three favorite goods purchased by foreigners who come to Beijing.

In previous years, tourists used to be taken to traditional arts and crafts stores, but they now ask to be taken to the Silk Market in the central business district or Hongqiao Market near the Temple of Heaven.

Many foreign travel agencies arrange tours to the Silk and Hongqiao Markets as part of their packages. The tour guide revealed they are becoming better known globally and the reports of reasonable prices and quality goods there help boost their profiles. Many foreign travelers have become more interested in shopping at these traditional places for locals and always have a lot of fun there.

In addition, other favorite clothing markets for Beijingers are also becoming popular with foreigners, including the Yaxiu Market near the Workers' Stadium and Jiayi Market opposite the Kunlun Hotel.
