Song Xian Qiao Market Tours

Song Xian Qiao Antique City is the country's second-largest antiques market and an excellent place to shop for souvenirs. With more than 500 separate stalls selling everything from exquisite watercolor paintings to fake Buddha statues and everything in between, Song Xian Oiao market is a treasure trove for shoppers and people-watchers alike. 

The market stretches over five acres and houses between 500 to 800 stalls at any given time. For the most established vendors, look in the three-story buildings along Modi and Huan Hua creeks, and if you're looking for a true treasure, compare and contrast pieces and be on the look out for clever replicas.Stalls are not the only place of commerce here; lined up along the creeks and beneath the shop awnings, hawkers from around China display their wares on carpets. It’s a hustling, bustling, overwhelming display that is not to be missed. The market is also a great place to sample fresh, local snacks.

Practical Info

The market is located near Du Fu's Cottage and Wu Hou Temple on Huan Hua Bei Lu Road. It’s open from approximately 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., and weekends can get quite crowded. Bargaining is expected and almost required—be sure to counter with less than half of the asking price and proceed from there.
