shopping in canton

The best thing about shopping in Guangzhou is browsing the weird and wonderful collection of animals, food and medicines in Qingping Market. The rugged and rough side to this city is open for everyone to see here, just make sure you hold your nose if you visit in the summer!

If this is all a bit too authentic for you, there are some great little boutiques to be found on Shamian Island and Beijing Lu. Guangdong is famous for its exquisite Embroidery which can also be found at some of the good night markets on Xinhu Lu or Jiaoyue Road.

Guangzhou also has some reasonable department stores including the South Mansion Department Store that gets most of its stock direct from Hong Kong.

Night markets

Take full advantage of the open-air markets for Its low price and the fun of bargaining night markets scatter at Xihu Rd., Jiaoyu Rd., Huanghuagang, Xiaogang, Shahe, Shayuan, Shangxiajiu Commercial Pedestrian Street and BeiJing koad Commercial Pedestrian Street. All night markets open from dusk to midnight, selling daily articles, fashionable clothes and foods, etc. The night markets are not only quite convenient but also add color to Guangzhou night life.


Antique Market

Guangzhou has its antique market in the alleys off Daihe Lu. It's very informal and consists mostly of people peddling wares from their windows or the back of a truck. It can he very interesting, but be aware that few of these `antiques' are very old and many may be fake Still, it's good fun to explore.


Arts & Crafts

Brushes, paints and other art materials may be worth checking: a lot of this stuff is being imported by western countries, so you should be able to pick it up cheaper at the source. Scroll paintings are sold everywhere and are invariably expensive, partly because the material on which the paintings are done is expensive. There are many street artists in China who sit on the sidewalk making drawings and paintings on the spot and selling them to passers-by.
