DAY TRIP: Shopping Day in Yiwu
Time & Location
About the Event
China is known as the world's factory, but who supplies the factory? Many of us shop on TaoBao but do not know where all the shops get their goods. We have all been to the Yu Garden commodity mall, but few people stop and wonder where the items for sale come from. And where do the pearl markets get all the beads and stones to make necklaces and earrings? Quite simply the answer is …YIWU! Come with us as we explore one of the oldest and largest small goods trading markets in China. They have an A to Z selection: from fashion accessories to jewelry to toy zebras and almost anything or everything one might need. The Chinese say you could spend three months here if you walked into every shop at this market!
