Yiwu is a city in Zhejiang, 100 km south of Hangzhou.

Get in

If you take a bus, it leaves about every hour and is available at various long distance inter-province bus stations ( called chang tu ke yun zhan in Chinese). Some stations got more schedules than others. Make sure you know which station you are going to. Again, the hotel staff should be able to give you directions. You may want to go to either the general station (or Ke yun Zong zhan at No. 1662 of Zhongxing Road) or Pacific Station (tai ping yang station at No. 710 Hengfeng Road.) Actually buses are just fine if you don't get car sick.




The town has a large market with quite a range of goods. There are few Western residents, but many from India, Pakistan, and the Middle East. Many do some sort of import/export business. Binwang market has cloth, clothing, furnishings. International Trade City and the Futian Market has many small commodities including housewares, jewellery, beads, gifts, religious and seasonal goods.
