Don’t go shopping for Gucci, Louis Vuitton and other high end international fashion brands while being in Shanghai. First of all Gucci has about the same amount of stores in Shanghai as Boots has in London! This makes it much less special. Besides, you pay – for example – compared to Hong Kong 45 per cent luxury tax…It’s therefore that people in Shanghai always say ‘Happy Shopping’ when their natives travel to Hong Kong.
Do go shopping for Chinese brands like Mary Ching. This international Chinese luxury brand makes very elegant shoes, luxurious slippers, and exquisite clutches and handbags.
