It’s time to move outside of the shopping malls and explore some local specialty markets. Today, Lisa Zhu will take us on an unusual market excursion by bus. We will start with a local interior design market and see where locals buy marble tiles, flooring, wall paper and curtains..as well as how much they pay for it! Next we will stop at a shoe market where you can find real local brand leather shoes and bags with almost unbeatable prices. We will also visit one of the two legendary Chinese traditional art markets where you can find classic, museum quality Chinese art at affordable prices, as well as a variety of art supplies. We will also visit a textile market with silk quilts, sheets,  pillow covers and curtain fabric.  Please bring your own packed lunch to eat on the bus.  Ready for a unique day?
