"A pocket guide to shopping in
-Thomas Crampton, International Herald Tribune
Lowu Commercial City is where it’s at!
Lowu Commercial City is like a little city of 1500 shops all in one cavernous place, with touters at every corner, trying to tempt you to visit their shops. Where to go and what to buy first? Their wares vary from a wide range of fashion and accessories, to rugged outdoor wear and a range of services from tailoring to removing the wax from your ears! A mind-boggling array that tourists and shoppers never tire of! It’s not only great value, it’s downright fun and shoppers rarely leave without wishing they could stay longer…(especially if they don’t have a guide to tell them about the best places to shop!)
Shopping in the City – Follow the locals!
There is also plenty of shopping elsewhere in the city: The locals list the pedestrian walkways of the Dongmen as their all time favourite shopping area, computer hacks are addicted to the computer markets of Hua Qiang Bei Lu and the middle class love their new elegant, and expensive, designer malls sprouting up along the city’s modern and efficient urban railway stations. Being the world’s furniture manufacturing hub, it’s also the place to furnish your home from roof to garden.
