Shopping in Dunhuang
The Shazhou Night Market is the largest
outdoor market in Dunhuang. The entire market is unofficially divided
into seperate specialty areas such as handicrafts, antiques, tea and
The road in front of the market is lined
with over 100 stalls specializing in selling handicrafts and other
cultural odds and ends like crystal, jade, Dunhuang silk carpets and
"glow in the dark" stone cups made from local materials.
However, the vendors drive hard bargains
and it may be difficult to drive down prices.
