I remember clearly when my hubby had announced our new posting to Beijing two and half years ago, I could only think of shopping and nothing else cropped up my mind. I had heard from my friends that it is a shopper paradise and for a person like me who goes crazy to see the Knick knacks would just love the varieties of porcelain potteries, paintings.
Last weakened we visited a great place called Panjayuan flea market, this was truly remarkable with almost 3000 shops spread over 48500 square meters under one roof selling all that stuff u love to collect, a must see in Beijing
Hilary Clinton also could not escape paying a visit to this flea market.
We wanted to get some paintings so this was the right place to visit.
We had this quick loaf for brunch and were all set for the weekend shopping spree.
