Guangzhou Travel Guide

Guangzhou Shopping

There are plenty of temptations for visitors who are shopping in Guangzhou; the city''s various outlets trade in everything from local jade sculptures to international designer labels. The most popular shopping area is the Liwan pedestrian street of Shangxia Jiu Lu. Canton jade sculptures make beautiful Guangzhou souvenirs. There are great fashion boutiques to be found along the Beijing Lu and Renmin Nan Lu pedestrian avenues, while the Teem Plaza and China Plaza department stores also stock high-street trends. For jade and jewellery, head for Hualin Street, while there are other great local artworks to be found on Wende Street. Be wary of solicitors who offer pirated dvds, and avoid going into small side alleys.

Onelink Plaza appears at first glance to be an ordinary mall, but inside you''ll find wholesalers offering an enormous selection of goods for great bargains. Most shops will not let you bargain unless you buy in bulk, but the prices are still good even if you only buy one or two items. There are clothes markets to be found on Gaodi Street and Huanshi Xi Lu, while Shan Hai Cheng and Hai Zhong Bao are two of Guangzhou''s best seafood markets. The Canton Fair, held in April each year, is a Guangzhou shopping spectacular not to be missed!
