Under the Dong Zhou Wang Cheng Guang Cheng there’s a nice antique market. It’s not as big as in the big cities, but it’s nice to walk around there for a while. Each vendor has his own booth, and most of them just let you look at their articles without saying ‘hello’ or ‘look look’ all the time.
What to buy: Most of the shops sell smaller stuff, but in one part they also sell furniture.

Picture taking for all occasions; We did wedding pictures there. Packages come in all forms but ours cost less than 500 USD, lasted 1.5 days, we got the originals, couple frames, posters, glass, albums, etc, etc, etc. Very satisfied with the final result. They change the haircut and make up for each scene and the service is VIP.

What to pay: Expensive for chinese standards but really worth it.
