    Ya Xiu Market (Yashow) is a paradise for bargain hunters in Beijing, a big draw for the tourist with some money to spend and some serious shopping to do too. It is located to the west of Sanlitun bar street in the northeast of Beijing.

    Xiu Shui market reopened for business in its shiny new 5 storey shopping mall on March 19th 2005 (or thereabouts) replacing the infamous original outdoor Xiu Shui market.  In doing so, it has become the inner city's one stop tourist shopping paradise.  It's name is now written in English across the entrance as simply "Silk Street".

    World's largest pearl market

    Hong qiao Market also known as the Pearl Market, is the place to go for cheap pearls. While there are stalls that sell electronics, it's pretty safe to ignore them as prices are more or less the same as back home. Just head up a few floors to the pearl vendors. Note that the majority of the pearls here are farmed freshwater pearls which are of lower quality than salt water pearls so bargain accordingly.

The Joint Factory was designed to be built in 1952 , constructed from 1954,put into production in October 1957.

That is the genre what later called Bauhaus.

    On The April ,1964, the supervisor units canceled the organizational system of 718, established 706,707,718,797,798 and 751. The former six factories of 700, 706, 707, 718, 797, and 798 were reorganized and incorporated into Beijing Sevenstar Science and Technology Co., LTD in December, 2000. To cooperate the reforming plan of Dashanzi Area ,the Seven Group rented out these plants for short term. Attracted by ordered designing, convenient traffic, unique style of Bauhaus architecture, many art organizations and artists came to rent the vacant plants and transformed them, gradually formed a district gathered galleries, art studios, cultural companies, fashion shops etc. As the earliest area where the art organizations and artists moved in located in the original area of 798 factory, this place was named as Beijing 798 Art Zone.
