The best shopping in Guangzhou can be found at a variety of places. The city has both modern shopping malls with outlets for popular international chains, as well as local markets packed with clothing, jewelry and all kinds of knickknacks and souvenirs. If you’re looking for a Western-style mall, the best shopping is at glitzy Guangzhou Tee Mall Plaza, where you’ll find seven floors of retail glory along with restaurants, a movie theater and much more. For luxury shopping and designer fashion, visit the relatively new Taikoo Hui mall, which plays host to more than 180 brands as well as a floor devoted to alfresco dining. Alternately, head to pedestrian-only Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street to score bargain-basement prices on clothing, housewares, fashion accessories and souvenirs, or to Haizhu Wholesale Market to stock up on packaged snacks, toys, paper goods and other gifts at wholesale prices – haggling is expected at both destinations.
