It was a bit of a trek from the train station but a good way to spend a few hours shopping in a non pressured environment. Smaller than some of other markets in Shanghai and thankfully not as pressurised. Not the constant pestering you experience...More

Not a big place as we really expected it to be, but it did give us a 1 hour break from our traveling. You HAVE to be able to bargain as (at least for the first and third floors) you're given outrageous prices at first....More

The Shanghai Hongqiao Pearl Market pales in comparison with it's sister market in Beijing. Only one floor of pearls and none of the wide open stalls found in Beijing. The fake market at the Museum of Science and Technology metro stop is a much better...More

Based on one of the other reviewers, I went to Abe’s (2nd floor). She was super nice, great English, had a great selection and came in at fair prices. The first floor of the market is your basic Chinese market. Lots of vendors all aggressively...More

There is a wide range of shops and prices. I was able to get strands of pearls who makes jewelry for a very reasonable price. I wanted a gold chain with pearls spaced out and could not find for inexpensive. A vendor offered to make...More

the market is great to see and the deal are good. you must be an expert negotiator or they will beat you up and you will pay way too much for things. know your prices before you step foot inside this market.

I really did my research on pearl buying here and over and over I kept finding references to Abe’s. I can tell you I was not disappointed! She is so knowledgeable and honest. They even custom-made certain pieces for me while I shopped for other...More

Buy your fakes and souvenirs here. Tailors too beaver away to make your clothes. Bargain and smile your way to some shopping bargains.

I would suggest that everyone go to the Pearl Market when you’re in Beijing. Just be sure you know the exchange rate and that you don’t fall prey to high pressure sales. I had a great experience at the pearl sales, but when I got...More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.

I don't think that Abe's has a website or social media presence. I asked her if she had her own trip advisor page for the store and she said 'no,' but that she would look into it. She gave me a card with her email, but I... More
