  1. This is why the Europeans came. This is a place with bustling little old alleys behind every old world commercial facade. Step in and have a wander.

  2. again this is one of the largest medicine market in China. You can find bags and bags of different refreshing herbs and minced tablets too. Our favourite one is the Golgi Berries because we use it all the kind in stews and soups, delicacy)

  3. This market is gigantic and hence you will see many products that are the same. Nonetheless, the atmosphere was well worth a visit and exploring the alleys deep inside the market was incredibly interesting. The products themselves are less attractive but overall my friends and i had a good time there.

  4. This market is located just off one of the main pedestrian malls in Guangzhou. It is there to solely serve the local population and is not a tourist attraction. But because it is so traditional it is therefore a tourist attraction. Each shop or stall is full of hundreds of herbs, spices, dried flowers, leaves, barks, animal bones and parts plus numerous other unknown items. There were even live scorpions for sale. Almost all for unknown uses or cures. We understand many were for making teas or medicines to be taken to cure specific ailments. A treat to just look at. They were well patronised by locals.
