Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A couple of hours before our visit to HuangSha Fish Market (TA reviewed) we briefly visited this medicine and spice market.

Between the markets we strolled around ShaMian Island which is across the busy road.

We didn’t explore the three floors of the market as we’ve been there a few times (see TA reviewed March 2017) but limited ourselves to the ground floor stalls facing the road as there’s a few selling teas. The expression ‘All the tea in China’ comes to mind!

Anyway, SWMBO bought tea and dried orange peel which SWMBO assures me is a great addition to tea and soups. The tea she bought isn’t in bags or loose but comes packed into individually wrapped, small, dried oranges which gives the tea a very nice hint of orange. Just be aware this is a whole sale market, and they’re not keen on selling less than a kilo of anything, and the tea and dried orange peel isn’t cheap.

Note: Just steep one into hot, not boiling water, and wait a couple of minutes to let the tea percolate out. Very refreshing on these 40/40 days, 40C and 40% humidity.

After SWMBO’s purchases were packed into our rucksack and we carried on walking towards the pedestrian walkway which spans the monstrous traffic intersection and hence to Shamian Island.

We visited Qingping Medicine Market for the first time. We were awed by the sheer variety and types of Chinese medicine available. The prices of the products were very reasonable and the shopkeepers were very helpful. We were to find everything that we need.

I think if we knew more about herbal remedies, this would have been more meaningful. Still, it was fascinating to stroll through and visit all the booths. Everything you can imagine -- eggs, mushrooms, meats, vegetables, seafood, dried foods, and herbal medicines. Lots of stalls selling the same things --not sure how it works for the vendors -- if they pool their earnings or how exactly they all stay in business. Steps from the subway. Worth a visit.

We landed up walking around this place after a busy lunch. The aroma is intense but there are several locals buying all kinds of ingredients for cooking and for medicinal purpose.

How do they sell all this stuff? ?
Everywhere there are crates, sacks, boxes, of the same stuff. Most of it unrecognisable, at least to western eyes
But it is worth a visit.
We couldn't find the 'live' or meat area though, but did find the aquatics and the pet cat/dog area

There are still thousands of shop with herbs/ medical stuff, tried specialities, pills and more. We are talking here about many streets! - in the end all shops nearly with all the same! There are still some "special streets" with only one product, like turtle street, scorpions street, dog butcher and so on. Last time, many years ago, most of the area was known as " Qingping market" - the worlds largest food market!!?? Today you hardly recognize the area, overall new buildings. ( visit the market some years ago)

Walked through bought nothing. I don't know how genuine and helpful the medicines are. Interesting to go through and see.

There are many things sold at this street market, most of which are offered for the production of Chinese natural medicine. There are many herbs, different types of mushrooms with some being offered for over 10,000 rmb, fins of fish, dried starfish, live scorpions, live turtles and other sea life, and more. It is an interesting place to have a walk through. The top doctors of The First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University are non-believers of the benefits of many of the ancient Chinese natural medicine.

Streets with shops and malls with shops competing to sell Chinese herbs. There are so many herbs that I am not aware of. It is a herbalist's delight. There are so many shops to choose from, it is a bargainer's paradise!

We were there this AM. Nice & safe place to browse around. Interesting collection of exotic herbs & ingredients. But we didn't buy given the poor food quality assurance standards.
