SHOPPING IN CHINA

Leave a Comment

I am going to give you a fair warning and say that shopping in China is crazy!

There are those typical stores that you find in the UK and elsewhere - Zara, Adidas, Nike and etc. However, everyone knows that when you go on holiday you want to find good clothing for a fraction of UK prices.

The first mistake I made was going to the Golden Eagle shopping centre in Nanjing. The shopping centre consisted of big brands and I'll be honest, I did not buy anything. (I am student - I do not have money for that and am not a big brands fan).

Next stop was Fashion Lady, which is a well known underground market across China (it is literally underground and legal). The clothing items in this place were great, even though some shops were quite pricey (£200 for a dress). A group of us did manage to find a place which was cheap - I am talking about mini bags for £4 and figure-fitting denim jeans for £10. I love bargains so I was happy!

After trying to return to the place I called Fashion Lady, I discovered it was not Fashion Lady. On my first trip, the taxi driver must have taken us to the wrong shopping centre. When a group of other fashion freaks and I reached our destination we had been transported to a place that was unfamiliar... But nonetheless still something I that I would call heavenly!

Overall shopping in China can be a hit and miss. It is all about trying to find somewhere that caters to the things that you like whether it is high-end brands or low-end comforts. The most important tip I will give you is to always haggle. Even if it seems cheap to you, because most of the time sellers will undercut their original price.
