Silk Street Market
The dried silk is later stretched and made into stuffing for duvets. In a marketplace named after silk, this display is about more than doing business. It's a cultural display illuminating the mysteries of a fabric highly esteemed in China and beyond.
One floor up, and you find a completely different setting. Pearls of all shapes and sizes are laid out in well-lit and neat glass cases at each store. The homegrown brands sell pearls of premium quality at affordable prices. Shop assistants are on hand to help you differentiate the less-than-perfect from the illustrious. If the prices are too steep, don't forget that in the Silk Market there's always a better deal to be had if you're prepared to haggle.
Diamond may be a girl's best friend, but in the Silk Market, it's pearls!
