China offers a wide variety of goods for interested shoppers. Items can be purchased in department stores and government stores or at the free shops & markets. Textiles, precious stones, embroidery and minority handicrafts are among the most typical souvenirs.
To avoid disappointments:
- Read credit card charge slips & compute the exchange rate before signing.
- Take your purchases home with you (if possible).
- Keep all sales receipts for items throughout your trip and try packing the items you will need to declare separately.
