The Dongtai Road Antiques Market (Dōngtái Lù, Dōngtái Lù) is a veritable treasure trove of knick-knacks and curios, though the "antiques" are of more than dubious authenticity. Great for picking up souvenirs and gifts, stalls sell everything from Mao memorabilia and terracotta warriors to vintage cigarette posters and tea sets. Prices will start sky high so be sure you know how to bargain in China.
If you're looking for something of a little higher caliber, the shops behind the stalls offer somewhat better quality, but you'll see the difference in the prices.
