Himalayan, a land full of mystery and long history, captures the souls of many people who have ever or never been there. So I was thrilled to find a shop in Beijing offering handicrafts from that mysterious region.

You can easily spot the shop, Himalayan Artwork, in the Drum Tower area by its colorful flags hanging outside.

Mr Yang, the owner, introduced me to a collection of Tibetan products: prayer wheel for blessings, painted or embroidered Buddhist banner CThangka, incense burner, and colorful folk costumes.

If you want to soothe your soul, I recommend this Tibetan singing bowl. It is a type of bell used for prayers and meditation. Each bowl comes with a wooden stick for you to use.

The shop carries singing bowls featuring various paintings, carvings, and Buddhist signs around its edge. In addition, you can use it as a music instrument for events like yoga classes. Prices are relatively cheap. Tens or hundreds of yuans for the most part. You can bargain with Mr Yang. But since he can't speak English, be sure to take a pen and paper with you.

What I Appreciate:

Ethnic flavor
