Sightseeing

There are not much to see in Yiwu except the huge whole marketplace - Futian market. Nearby place like Hengdian(Chinese Holleywood) and Hangzhou are good for sightseeing. If you have to see something in Yiwu except market, you can go to Yiwu Xiuhu Lake Park, Yiwu Riverside Park, Yiwu Wetland Park are my three recommendations. They're all inside the city and very easy to go. You can read them on Yiwu sightseeing.
