After we got settled in our hotel room in Beijing, and had a
bite to eat in one of the hotel's restaurants,
we decided to go to the Peal Market and see what they had to sell. We took a cab to the market. The bell boy who grabbed us a cab told us it would be about 40 yuan for the ride. When we arrived I handed the cab driver 50 yuan, but he would only take 30. How odd, but nice. The ride back was during a busier time, took longer, and cost 40 yuan.
Continuing on our journey to Beijing and the Pearl Market...
|We arrive at Beijing's famous Pearl Market.
|On the first floor it looks more like a clothing store than a pearl market.
|There are a number of floors, and the higher the floor, the more expensive the pearls.
|There are hundreds and hundreds of booths selling the same thing...mostly pearls of course.
|Thousands and thousands of pearl necklaces, ear rings, bracelets, and more.
|Riding down the escalator.
|The next few pictures I took of the street down below. I was on a balcony at the Pearl Market.
