    Default Where to buy in China

    Hello all,

    Coral and I are visiting China for a few weeks and will also spend a few days in Singapore on the way back.

    Whilst in China, the main objective is to explore and learn about China.

    Shopping is not a reason for us to visit China..... but.....

    Since we will be in China, it would be nice to buy a couple of small things that we would not generally buy here.

    Items such as good sunglasses/a watch/ a latest mobile phone ... etc.

    Can you suggest somewhere in China that is best for shopping for such items

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thank you in advance
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    for electronic goods, shenzhen/guangzhou/hongkong is better. shanghai is comparatively more expensive but still cheaper than singapore for most of the stuff.
    i think the shanghai's photographic equipment shopping center has shifted to lu ban lu about a year ago.
    no need to try to shop for camera stuffs in xian cuz it's too deep inland.
    sigh.
