Hi I m going to Guangzhou in mid August. May I know cheap n best shopping places?
Answered by Sally from INDONESIA | Aug. 16, 2015 21:15
If you want to go shopping for clothes, shoes, bags, I suggest you go to Baima Clothes Wholesale Market, located at Zhanna Road, near the railway Station. Or you can also go to Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street for fashion shopping. For accessories, the OneLink Plaza is the best choice.
