China shopping

When it comes to shopping in China, most people head to Shanghai's glitzy malls and cool boutiques for international designer brands—although bargain hunters will be disappointed at the high prices. For those looking for something cheap or kitschy, head to Shanghai's markets and banter for bargain imitations. In between, there are the specialist small shops of the French Concession, where you can buy cool curios. Beijing's shopping districts are harder to locate, but be assured that designer malls, such as The Place, are there thanks to pre-Olympic development, as are the (some would say better) markets selling everything from Communist memorabilia to beautiful embroidered fabrics.
