Tips for doing shopping

  • Most tourist commodities are priced at the market prices. Therefore, foreigners may pay a visit to several shops to buy the commodity at a reasonable price if time permits.
  • There are three types of shops—state-run shops, Sino-foreign joint-venture shops and privately-run shops. At shops of the former two types, the prices marked are the final prices, which are non-negotiable.
  • If your clients wish quality products of relatively high value made in China, they had better go to state-run shops, joint-venture shops. Although the prices at these shops are a little higher, their commodities are normally worth the prices and the quality of goods is guaranteed.
