On the way to 大胡同 (dahutong)。Another form of taxicabs or for ferrying goods.

Tianjin Dahutong. A street with tons and tons of stalls in buildings or along the roadside, flanking both sides of the street.


Don't be fooled by the modern facade of the buildings. Within them, the stalls are mostly the pasar malam (flea market) type. Very crowded narrow alleys, poor ventilation, haphazard orientation and organisation of stalls and goods, and very noisy. You get the idea. Yet, everyone is very happy, from shopper to stall holder.


I've gone there twice. Once with H and her son. This time with Dh and the boys. Mainly to get some supplies cheaply and in bulk.

It is an experience to shop there. If you're lucky, you can get your stuff very cheaply and it could work well for you. Have to be careful not to end up with very cheap but use-once-have-to-throw stuff.


rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
