Shopping in Beijing

by Simbi

Dear All,

I will go to Beijing in 3 weeks.

One thing I am looking for is copies. As I know that there are always different qualities, I am looking for the AAA-copies. All of your Tips are appreciated.

Somewhere I read about a very New luxury shopping mall (of course this is Not vor buying copies). Where is it and would you recommend a visit?

What do you buy in China? Any goods cheaper that in Europe, or very special?

Thank you for your advice
Simbi

You can buy basically anything. But most of it is complete rubbish, and you'll be lucky if you get it out of the shop before it falls to pieces.

Shopping in Beijing

Good shopping in China is all about making intelligent choices *of course, based on your luck.

Price and quality are two separate things in China. First and the foremost thing is that you should have a fair idea of the price of the item in your native country. Thenceforth, you have to consider the quality issues. Except for branded products, you will find WARRANTY an unknown word in China.

It won't be a smart thing to buy any REAL European or American brands in China as they are much more expensive here. For example, even just for a pair of Levi's jeans, it costs $60 in the US (new arrival), but in Beijing, even the discounted ones cost more, new arrivals will be $110. It's pretty much the same for big brands like LV, Chanel...

As it is supposed to be illegal to sell AAA copies, the shops are usually extremely difficult to find, they may locate in a big crappy clothes market, you'd have to spend a lot of time to look for them, sometimes some small designer shops will have one or two pieces of AAA copies, you'd just have to dig. I've seen some good copied purses in Guanyuan clothes market(Chegongzhuang Subway station).

Most tourists will just go to Yashow on Gongti Beilu(name of the street) or Silk Market (the Chinese name is Xiu Shui Market). There are a lot of copies, but yeah, the quality and design are just so-so. Maybe if you are lucky, you can find good ones, but you'd still have to look hard for them.

There are a few fancy malls in Beijing: Lane Carlford(Chinese name is Lian Ka Fu) in Financial street, there are big brands like Chanel, LV, Versace....
Sinkong Plaza near Dawanglu subway station, you can find Marc Jacobs, Coach...

Tip: The AAA copies will still cost $300-$700 for a handbag while the real ones in the shop cost $1000 more. AAA copies are actually the real thing, they are just smuggled out from the factory by workers.
So the ones you can get for $10 from Yashow are just copies..

Hope it's helpful~

I wouldn't even buy branded goods here - manufacturers know that consumer rights don't exist here, so they send all their Monday morning things here. For instance you can buy a pukka Sony Ericsson phone, but it may have only a one week guarantee.

Re: Shopping in Beijing

Yes I agree. As for clothes and fashion, Beijing can't compare to the US. Not only that for the same quality stuff it costs twice more, also that the styles and sizes are limited.

It's much better to go to little boutique shops, clothes are not branded but designed by talented designers..they are quite widely spreaded all over the city though, might not be so convenient for tourists.

Musical afternoon in the Temple of Heaven

by ahoerner

In the way to the Temple of Heaven, tourists can usually see groups of chinese playing and singing their traditional tones... you understand that music is much more than just being happy here, but it is a state of mind...

Here you feel and you hear the real China...

Hutongs

by ValbyDK

In Beijing you must visit the hutongs! It is amazing just passing through a hutong and watch the daily life going on.

Since the 1950s, the number of Beijing hutongs has dropped dramatically as they are demolished to make way for new roads and buildings. More recently, some hutongs have been selected as protected areas in an attempt to preserve this aspect of Chinese cultural history.

In the hutongs you can find laundries, where you can have your cloth washed and ironed for a very little money.

Almost of everything

by ahoerner about Hongqiao Market (Pearl Market)

Another fleamarket with almost of everything... including pearls.

A great variety of fakes and also souvenirs. You find also cheap electronics.

It worths to visit at least one of these markets in Beijing. Bargain always! Normally prices are to be 30-40% of the asked ones.

Hard Rock Cafe

by wen_viaggio about Hard Rock Cafe

Perhaps the trendiest nightspot for the young locals and tourists alike. The entrance fees are rather expensive though but if you are into good food and late nights, this might just be the place for you. Smart casual.
