Dongjiaxi Flea Market


The largest and the most famous flea market in Chongqing is located in a very old and tired building. It is a hidden gem offering second hand goods and vintage items.


It has five floors with goods on sale at each floor, selling wares such as cooking utensils, barbecue grills, and furniture. The fourth floor is one worth a visit. It is like a paradise for pretty much everything you need from books, paintings, writing brushes, traditional Chinese musical instruments to backpacks, smart phones, clothes, and accessories.

Sanxia Vintage&Antiques Market


This one is located near the People's Auditorium and Sanxia Museum, and that's how the name came about. The indoor area is home to some expensive vintage and antiques, and usually you can go to the outdoor area for a look.


A place for history buffs and strolling through the stalls to get a deep insight into Chinese history. There are a lot of treasures to be found: calligraphy writings, paintings, books, china, tea sets, clocks, bracelets, rings, silverware, copper, iron, jade and handicrafts.

Bargaining is encouraged and definitely necessary to get the best deal. You may need to take with you some basic local language, like "xiang yin dian sa" (Can you make it cheaper?) or just pretend walk away for waiting them to say "yao de" (ok).


Zhongxinglu Vintage&Antiques Market


This used to be a big market but now it's just some stalls in a narrow alleyway. But it's still a place where you can find some gems.
