Listening to soothing music from a Music Box

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2007-11-20 Views: 2344 | Booked times: 58 ]

As the only shop to exclusively sell music boxes in Beijing, ZhiYinYuan is the best place for music boxes. Upon entering the shop, you will immediately fall into music heaven, a total departure from the noisy streets outside.

Their various designs on display look like pieces of art. Even the bamboo slips behind the cashier are designed like a Chinese traditional dulcimer, with the history of music boxes engraved.

The shop assistant was recommending a special music box for a young couple when I was there. It caught my attention. The music box has adoring swans sitting inside a beautiful pink ribbon heart, inlaid in beautiful raspberry stained elm burl. It is regularly prices at RMB 268, and the music cannot be changed. However, they can add a special tune for an additional RMB 10. You can also get it gift-wrapped for RMB 4. Makes a great gift to that someone special to your heart.

Generally, the prices at ZhiYinYuan range from RMB 68 for a common wooden music box, up to RMB 1080 for a dedicated porcelain box with an MP3 player inside. The shop assistants cannot speak English unfortunately, so you have to pick out the music box yourself.
