Last updated by andy yen at 2014/5/14

The Curio Street at Dongtai Road is the antique-hunter's mecca. Slightly over-200-meter long, the street is lined with more than 125 small shops selling a mind-boggling variety of items. The main products are China wares, bronze wares, jade pieces, bamboo and wood carvings, calligraphy, paintings, badges, Chairman Mao memorabilia ancient ink, paper, brush pen and inkslabs. The place remains as one of the most popular markets among expats and locals alike. The main fact to remember is that most of the items are not genuine. The fun of the place may not in finding a real antique, but seeing all of interesting items and the haggling experience. Haggle hard if  you want to purchase something. Read more
