Humen, a town located within the south China city of Dongguan, is catching the world's eye with its booming garment industry. Sometimes known as the 'factory of Hong Kong,' Humen teems with over 1,000 garment enterprises of which more than 300 are foreign-funded. This means that in Dongguan you may buy items of clothing much more cheaply than the identical garments in Hong Kong. Several international clothing retailers have established stores in that area, many of which carry brands familiar to visitors from abroad.
In addition to the international chain stores, there are numerous shopping centers featuring locally owned establishments. Virtually every section of Dongguan outside of downtown has pedestrian malls or shopping centers including restaurants, hotels and amusement centers.
Nancheng Fumin Commercial Pedestrian Street, about 1200 meters long, is usually the first choice for people intent on shopping. It is located in the Hongyuan section of Guantai Avenue in the Nancheng District. A number of well-known brands such as Nescafe of Switzerland, American Dupont, and NOKIA of Finland among others have stores here. Nancheng Fumin provides a lively shopping experience as well as a variety of restaurants and hotel accommodations.
An ideal place for visitors to savor the unique commercial atmosphere of the city is the Global Plaza. Located in the central section of Dongcheng District, the plaza includes the Haiya Department Store, one of the top shopping destinations in the city. The Trust-Mart Su permarket and Yongle Electrical Shop are also here. After an exciting time shopping, you can relax in a KFC or McDonald's or one of many other restaurants. If you wish to spend the night, Global Business Hotel is known for its quality service.
