INFORMATION

8.5 HOUR SHENZHEN SHOPPING TOUR

 

Shenzhen is a fantastic place to shop - who wouldn’t love the myriad of shops selling everything from handbags - of every size and description – to watches and all types of jewellery and pearls. Ready to wear clothing and shoes are available in abundance, and personal tailoring available for anyone wishing to have a favourite item copied, or a made to measure suit which can be posted back to Hong Kong, or to your home country if you’re limited to a short visit.

 

A walk through the fabric hall is as overwhelming as it is delightful with the many varied fabrics available from the lightest Thai silks to best quality wool and cashmere.If an hour or more can be spared for a little (more) indulgence there are beauty shops galore offering mani/pedi’s, massages, even a quick wash & blow-dry so you can go home feeling totally refreshed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A typical day trip to China

 

The journey to China commences at Hung Hom station in Kowloon. We usually meet our groups of 1-4 people at 9.30am at Starbucks on the Mezzanine floor of the station. There we can meet over a coffee and discuss what items you are interested in buying, if we have not already done this over email in advance.

 

A pick-up from your hotel at 9.30am can be arranged if preferred, but as this would take longer it means less shopping time in Shenzhen.

 

We take the MTR from Hung Hom to the border station of Lo Wu, which takes approximately 45 minutes. During this time exit and entry forms to China will be provided for completion by all parties. A visa is required for entry to China, which if not already held can be purchased at the border for citizens of many countries.

 

Leaving Hong Kong and entering China can take anything from 15/20minutes to up to an hour at busy times or during busy holiday periods.

 

During the day I will be at your disposal to guide you to the best shops where you will be able to view and buy the best value goods at a fair price. A point to remember - if you are buying good quality goods they may still cost more than a similar basic item without the label, but these items will cost a fraction of the price you’d pay elsewhere.

 

There are several good restaurants to stop for lunch or even just for a tea, coffee or soft drink. It is usual to book a table when we first arrive if you wish to eat at one of the Chinese restaurants as they get very booked-up at lunch times.

 

The trip ends when we return to Hung Hom MTR station and I take you to the correct taxi rank for your hotel location. (There are different queues for taxis to addresses on Kowloon or those crossing to Hong Kong island.)

 

 

OPTIONAL EXTRAS: Dafen art village is also located in Shenzhen and is about a 15 minute taxi ride from the LoWu Station. A trip to the village can be incorporated into your shopping trip if requested.

 

On request we can also incorparate a trip to HuaQuiangBei area which is famous for its electronic goods.

 

If 8.5 hours is not enough longer shopping trips can also be arranged. Please contact us with your requirements for a quote.

"We visited Luohu commercial city in Shenzhen and Laura was fantastic, she did all the hard bargaining for us and took us to the best shops. We got everything we wanted, prices half that of Hong Kong and far better quality .

 

The price of the tour more than makes up for itself in the savings that you make with Laura. We went to a very good quality tailor, the variety of material is mind boggling and

so so much cheaper than in Hong Kong and they will

either post it to your hotel or home."                                                                                                           Virginia, USA
