Shaping Market

Every Monday at Shaping, about 30km north of Dali, there is a colorful Bai Market. The market starts to rattle and hum at 10am and ends around 2:30pm. You can buy everything from tobacco, melon seeds and noodles to meat, pots and wardrobes. In the ethnic clothing line, you can look at shirts, headdresses, embroidered shoes and moneybelts, as well as local batik. Expect to be quoted ridiculously high prices on anything you set your eyes on, so get into a bargaining frame of mind before you go.
