Xiushui Street is close to the Friendship Shop and the embassy area. Here you can enjoy shopping for a wealth of traditional Chinese knick knacks to bring home for your family. If you don't have too much time for shopping in Beijing, this could be the only place you need to visit.
Bargaining is essential here in order to get the best prices. Items which you can find in this market include: shoes, jeans, trousers, jackets, shirts, Chinese souvenirs, Chinese rugs/carpets, golf equipment, pearls, watches, sunglasses, silk by the roll, Chinese paintings, small electronics and many other things. It also has a small supermarket in the basement. Prices are generally very reasonable here compared to your home country and if you are a skilled bargainer, you might be able to get things very cheap.
The Xiu Shui Street Mall is located along Chang An avenue near the Yong An Li line 1 subway station. You can now walk directly from the subway into the mall via an underground passageway without stepping outside into the scorching heat of summer or the terrible cold of winter.
Opening hours: 9:00--21:00
