A huge unique country in Eastern Asia: China. The name itself makes you want shopping, doesn’t it? We all know that China is one of the places that can satisfy a shopping-addict fully. But the struggle is that it is not quite easy to choose what you should buy from China because of the variety of products. Let’s make it easier to decide!
Here’s what you should buy from China!
Silk is one of the most popular products in China which tourists generally interest in.
Under this circumstances, there are numerous silken products that are being sold nearly in every bazaar. Silk rugs, sheets, scarves, embroidery, clothing…
In addition, don’t get surprised if vendors try to burn the silk products while you are buying one. They will probably want to prove that they sold real silk. Because of the fact that real silk burns clean, while fake silk melts.
Considering the quality and variety of silk products, silk is the first thing that you should buy from China.
Tea is even more popular than silk in China. It can be grown nearly in every region of China. What is more, all those tea’s names come from the region they have grown such as West Lake Dragon Well Tea and Huangshan Maofeng Tea. And also they all taste different. Isn’t it madness?
Teas can be found everywhere in China. There are many Tea Shops and Tea Malls in China that you can have some samples of teas before you buy one. We suggest not to lose yourself while trying to find the best one because they all have the different flavor which makes it impossible to finish tasting.
Popular teas you should buy from China;
- Longjing Tea of Hangzhou,
- Biluochun Tea of Suzhou,
- Maofeng Tea of Huangshan
People are talking about how cheap China is. That’s true but there is an important fact that Chinese tend to produce and sell the same products as the luxury brands’ products. You can find Louis Vuitton handbags, Louboutin shoes, RayBan sunglasses and Apple iPhones with quite cheaper price tags. But you should consider that they are fake. If you are okay with using fake products, then China is a kind of heaven for you. Original products of luxury brands are also being sold in China but you should be careful while deciding if they are original or not.
If the prices are too good to be true, then it probably is.
