    General: Bargain, bargain, bargain!

    by sifrim Written Apr 24, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't ever pay the asked price. Bargain is the rule. Even in the department store you can get a 40% reduction.

    What to buy: Jade, silk, electronics

    What to pay: Well, it depends, but I would say that prices are some 3-4 times lower than in Europe.

    Ole' supermarket: Western food products in China

    by view.finder Updated Dec 9, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This new supermarket stocks some jaw-dropping forgotten ingredient of Western food if you been a China for any considerable length of time and find food shopping difficult or unexciting.

    Laid out like a British supermarket, be absorbed in the bakery section and work your way on round past the cheeses to the Canton crocodile.

    Prices are a bit more than average but for all the trouble finding branches of Carrefour or WalMart/Tescos on short trips to built up areas, this is a convenient and eye-opening stop.

    What to buy: Thanksgiving and presumably Christmas turkeys were on offer on an A-frame outside the main doors. Import products from alcohol to cheese, cereal and a great selection of tinned food (beans, frankfurters and such) great for the expat travelling further back into the mainland. These supplies will last a long time and can stock up on a foreigner's condiment supplies.

    What to pay: A wisely invested few hundred Yuan can last months. Great booze section too! Worth splashing out.

    TaiKoo Hui Shopping Centre: Shop till you bloodclot

    by view.finder Written Dec 9, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gigantic, up market shopping mall development. Surely one of the grandest malls in all of China.

    What to buy: Ladies' Fashion, Shoes/Bags/Leather Goods, Arts/Home/Gifts, Health/Beauty, Children's Wear/Toys, Music/Electronics, Food & Beverages, Major Stores, Lifestyle.

    Worldwide luxury names make this place a shopping centre for the rich. Labels such as Dior, Emporio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Prada, Chanel, Starbucks. Check out 'awfullychocolate' for a funky new brand (food and drinks - I watched the manageress on an interview and she impressed me greatly). Uniqlo and some more affordable highstreet chains rival the luxury boutiques and even if parting with money makes you a little hot under the collar, architecturally this place is worth a look.

    by aoiaraumi Written Oct 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Winding maze of shops selling jade, precious stones, and antiques.

    What to buy: Antiques! There are lots of wooden statues, masks, puppets, and carved bed panels. Some of the china is good too. A few of the things might even be real!

    What to pay: Try to pay alot less than what they ask. If you think its real the boss probably does too. Buy what you like then you want be disaoppointed if its fake or not!

    No, those fish are not for eating, those are for the aquarium. China and the region are very rich in beautiful fish and they are very cheap of course.
