Crazy Town

There is really a place our city,
Where you can buy one thing or fifty.
Wuai Market is the name.
Crazy chaos is the game.
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty.

Wuai Market is the place to find almost anything.  Almost.  All those things stamped “Made in China” that your friends in the US complain about, they are here and you might want them.  Here, they might not even have a “Made in..” stamp.  That doesn’t matter when you’re living in this economy.  Hell, it doesn’t really matter when you’re living in the global economy anyway.

Wuai Market (五爱市场) is located at various street numbers on Renao Lu, Shenhe District, Shenyang.  It is around the corner from the Doubletree by Hilton.  There is a website if you want to check it out, or you can look at this echinacities article for details.  You can find it on Google Maps just by searching Wuai Market Shenyang.

All of these photos were taken with an ipod touch in one trip to the area.

Good luck.  This is not a shopping mall.  Bargain hard.  Go early, not after 3:00.  Don’t get lost.
