I took a tour around the Yiwu Industrial Trade City - the largest wholesale market in the world. People come here from every country to buy goods to export. 5.5 million square meters, 7km long, this market is beyond giant. And it's all one interconnected building. I explored it for a day with Collin Abroadcast, a fellow market fanatic. From Christmas decorations to children's toys to hardware and tools, we found a bunch of stuff that blew our minds.

There are actually free buses that run around the perimeter of the market, for ease of access. They're little ORANGE minibuses with designated bus stop(which are marked "FREE BUS" in orange as well) all over the market. There's actually one right behind you, on 16:24.
You won't spend more than 3 minutes because they are quite plentiful, and they really do help when moving around (even on non-market related stuff).
You have good videos....but you do say like a lot and get razed easily...I am usually thinking "calm down dude", Do yourself a favour and force yourself to stop saying "like" because it makes you sound either too nervous or excited.....Just chill and make the great videos without the underlying tension.
I'm sitting in my nice little US, MI, home, with my mouth agape, watching this video. I have known for years that EVERYTHING we own comes from China. Perfectly comfortable with the realization. I kind of lost track when the electronics market shifted from Japan to China, but that's a personal observation. Knowing the magnitude of the shift is what has me mindf*cked. It's places like this that I also could explore for weeks endlessly.
As of the time of my writing this post, the US and China are embroiled in trade wars. A friend of mine mentioned to me quite a few years back that China heavily relies on the US financially. I pooh-poohed his comment. I debated that China has global markets that they can easily turn to and crush the US. Seeing this, they still could. Granted, the UN would politely slap their hands in a gesture of political correctness. But I'll be damned if I'm not right in my position.
If I walked into that toy area as a kid I would have froze, my right eye would have twitched three times, fallen out of the socket onto my check , I would have crapped my self, screamed really night pitched for 35 seconds, and then passed out smiling.
the key here, how hard is it? to get the Chinese to change or mod things to your liking . in a color or size for western tastes. like many things are too lightweight or too small but otherwise excellent quality. lots of cool stuff , but did see some kich = 2$ trash
like to see more China, less of you in the video. your face is blocking the view.
WooW !!! Crazy i was there 30 yrs ago, i was 1 of the first white people there...I was BLOWN AWAY ALL THE PRODUCTS !! I started importing dirt bikes but Transport Canada FUCKED me around so i quit !! :(
Fake flowers are INSANELY flammable and really hard to extinguish. When they burn, they melt and stick. Moreover, you don't always know what kind of plastic they are made of, so they may also produce extremely toxic fumes when burn, like phenol or formaldehyde, or who knows what.
they have good indian food too and a music scene because of all the merchants. the whole thing was put together by military logistics experts, although that area central Zhejiang has specialized in various metal and woods crafts for hindreds of years
