In search of snacks, pens and stickers, we headed to the Zhengding International Market, which is essentially a large shopping centre on the edge of town. Despite its name, there didn't seem to be anything particularly international about the shopping centre, instead it consisted of various shops selling anything from Chinese paintings to car seats and dishwashers.
As well as picking up some essentials, we enjoyed wandering around the sectors selling cheap jewellery, artwork and gifts. These seemed particularly colourful and had plenty of small, fun items to admire.
One thing we were rather disappointed with however was the lack of coffee shops or cafes, instead this seemed the kind of place you'd come to in order to purchase a particular item then leave – not browse and chill for an afternoon.
