Where to Shop and What to Buy in China

China’s booming economy has led to an explosion of shops in towns and cities. Once fairly uninspired places where you might buy inexpensive souvenirs, work clothes, posters and books, you can now find shops selling everything from chic fashion to high-tech electronics.
