Chinese silk, Beijing
Silk Store

One of China's most dynamic cities, Hangzhou is a pearl in the Yangtze River Delta. Shopping in this city is no longer limited to local specialties such as China silk, tea, and lotus root starch. Today modern offerings abound in various shops, stores, supermarkets, and plazas that crowd the commercial center.

Hangzhou is well known for producing excellent silks, including satins. Throughout its long history, a variety of its silks and satins have been sold throughout the world. The best place for purchasing silk is at Silk City, the biggest silk wholesale and retail market in the country with more than 600 silk enterprises dealing in a wide variety of pure silk fabrics, garments, handicraft articles, scarves, and ties. The shoppers there not only do business on the mainland, but also export their silk products to Europe, America, Australia, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. The market is distinguished as offering standardized management, reliable quality, and reasonable prices. It is located at No.253 Xinhua Road (at the intersection of Fengqi Road, Tiyuchang Road, and Xinhua Road) You can get to the site by bus No.11 and 28.
 

Roasted green tea
Stir-drying Tea

Hangzhou Longjing Tea (Dragon Well Tea) is considered China's best. It is not only famous for its unique green color, fragrant aroma, sweet taste, and flat appearance, but is also regarded as a health elixir. The tea falls into different grades; the best is the first pick of a year, normally in late March or early April. Besides its good quality, Longjing Tea also enjoys a famous long history. If you are interested in tea culture and history, Meijiawu Village in West Lake District is the ideal spot where you can have a cup of tea, watch a tea ceremony, and select tea under professional guidance.

Qinghefang Street, one of the most famous historic streets in the city, reflects features of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). Most preserved buildings are from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Strolling on this street, you will be attracted by the antique buildings and local crafts, such as silk parasols, brocades, noted Zhang Xiaoquan scissors and Hangzhou fans.

Yanan Road is considered the Number One Street in Hangzhou. Three-thousand-meter-long Yanan Road running between the north and south sections of the city has become its  commercial center. Along the road are included the grand buildings of the Zhejiang Provincial Great Hall of the People, Hangzhou Culture Center, Victory Theatre, International Mansion, Department Store, Grand Hotel, and Haifeng Western Restaurant. Bordering the north end of Yanan Road is Wulin Square, the new center of culture and commerce where towers and skyscrapers are springing up, including Zhejiang Provincial Exhibition Hall, Hangzhou Shopping Center, Hangzhou Theatre, and Zhejiang Provincial Science and Technology Museum.

It depends on which kind of stores are you in. If you go to shopping malls, it is in vain to bargain. If you go to some outlet stores, you can have a try. As for how much to bargain, it also depends on the products but you can try to cut down about one -sixth at first.
