Shanghai is great for shopping. There are many shopping centers here. You can find everything you need in them: from European brand clothing to Eastern traditional medicine. If you are looking for European brands' clothes and accessories, it is recommended to go to the Bund waterfront or to the shops on Longhua Street. If you are satisfied with copies of branded things, then you will be able to find many places in Shanghai where pretty high-quality fakes are sold. Tourists are usually taken to the main shopping streets – Huanghai, Beisichuan, and Nanjing. However, it is recommended to try to find places for shopping on your own. Prices are usually much higher on tourist routes but the quality of products is low here. New World City, Raffles City Shanghai, Shanghai Fashion Store, and Super Brand Mall are worth visiting from major shopping centers. These are the most popular centers. If shopping for you is just part of the entertainment program but not the main goal, it is better to pay attention to the shops and malls located near your hotel. You can bargain not only in markets but also in boutiques here. However, keep in mind that the Chinese are very touchy. Therefore, you should only bargain if you really plan to buy an item. The state stores are open from 9.30. They close at 20:00-20:30. Shopping centers are open until 22:00. There is also a feature in writing price tags for products. You will see a peculiar fraction on the price tags for things with discounts.
