    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just along from the Zhongshan Bridge, on the south side of Binhe Lu is a good outdoor gear shop. Just two years ago, it was impossible to find outdoor gear anywhere outside Beijing or Shanghai, but now even cities a lot smaller than Lanzhou seem to have a good selection of camping and walking gear. However, experience wth a few things suggests that Chinese outdoor gear brands have a long way to go before they can compete on the world stage (boots are suppose to last more than 8km, for example, before falling apart).

    Home word supermarket is like million dollor gift to me in Lanzhou b,cos here I need not to talk to any one for shopping. It is worth to name that outside university I hardly get any one who can speak in english. Here you need to pickup things and make the payment at automated computerised counters. So never encountered with language problem and solve you purpose.

    What to buy: Almost every thing including food, clothes, wine, beer, electronocs. Any thing I need I get here

    What to pay: Whatever needed

    flying horse made by copper

    What to buy: Here is a list I think worthy to buy.
    Antique---
    Goblet made by black jade, flying horse made by copper, some ancient Chinese staff.
    Herbs and Produce---
    Bai He, medlar, Suo Yang, apricot...
    Silk---
    Gansu is famous of Silkroad, so don't forget buy a piece of silk from Gansu.

    What to pay: All I list are not expensive. If currency changes from $ to ??, only $10-20, you can buy the best piece I list. Of course $10-20/each.
