Shenyang What to Pack

  • weeklygo's Profile Photo

    by weeklygo Written Sep 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear:
    This is called The Middle Street, it is the shopping Center of Shenyang. If you speak fantastic Chinese it may not be the best place to go shopping, cause it is difficult to bargain here; but if you don't know Chinese at all, and you are new to here, just come here shopping, you won't be cheated.
