Bargain hard and do your research first on taobao before you shop here. There’s a great DVD man on the 5th floor, ( lots of them actually) shoes, bags, clothes , electronics.... mostly fake but pretty good quality! ( your in China!)

When we come to this place we expect a big and many special shenzen things..
But turns out its just a mall just like mangga dua in indonesia..
So we just take a look around and only buy lego for our kiddo..
They say when we want to buy something here we have to ask for a cheaper price.. but for me.. the price is just the same with jakarta..

I have just been to Shenzhen on a business trip arriving on Thursday afternoon and leaving on Saturday night.
I’ve been to Shanghai many times before and have shopped in what was an indoor market which was on East Nanjing Road but this was shut down by the authorities to try and pay “lip service” to making an effort to getting fake goods off the street so the main place to go there is the market underneath the Science & Technology Museum which is comfortably away from
Downtown Shanghai and it’s very much a case of being out of sight means out of mind.
However, Luohu Commercial City completely flies in the face of being secretive and to be honest the fake goods are very much in your face inside this place.
I would say that this place would have almost anything you would want to buy that is fake, any brand you’d care to think of and anything.
As far as any advice is concerned, if you are buying anything electronic ie. Bose headphones (Bluetooth especially) and Beats things (Bluetooth) and various other brands for music playback, whilst the copies are very good, be mindful that any of the Bluetooth pairing devices all have a Chinese accented voice telling you that the “Bluetooth is connecting” and nothing will ever change with that. With regards to quality, there are normally 3 qualities to choose from and I personally go for the very best every time. Be sure in your mind of what amount of money you want to spend and hold firm in your negotiating, do not waver and cave in. If the store keepers can’t sell a product to you for a particular price then they will let you walk away ultimately. If that happens, you can either go back and improve your offer marginally until they say “OK”. If you are buying watches, most of the people there are very very good sales people with their watches and will talk their respective quality watches up to you to be able to justify their price. You must be strong and resolute in your price that you want to pay. However, if you are happy with the price they ask for, then that’s all that really matters.
I got taking to an English guy in a store yesterday who asked where I’d got a Gold Rolex Submariner from that I was wearing and how much I had paid. I told him and he was blown away admitting to me that the Audemars Piquet watch he was wearing had cost him 4000RMB. In all my years of going to China the maximum I have ever spent on a watch has been 1500 and I would never again pay that. I always do much much better however good the quality is, less than 1000 (usually a lot less). The watch the guy I got talking to who had paid 4000 RMB for apparently would sell for £250k if it were real but to me, that’s a most unlikely fake watch to wear for me and most other normal people as there’s not one person I know that would think I had the money for a £250k watch so why wear one and pay that much (it was the equivalent of nearly £500 for a fake watch and you could buy a very nice new or used watch for that). My feeling is that fake watches have got their place but I personally set a limit of around £100 maximum as anything more defeats the object of a fake.
Always be mindful that any goods you are buying despite the Chinese claim of “same like original” are NOT original and are still fake, no matter what so don’t fall into the trap and agree to spend more on the goods. A good ploy to try is to go into a store and just look at something you would like to buy and just ask them for a price and as soon as they give it to you, say “thank you” and tell them you are just looking and will come back once you have worked out what you would like. Almost all shopkeepers will not let you walk away without buying whatever you were looking at. Tell them you are not interested in buying the product at the moment and keep maintaining that stance. They will ask you what price you would like to pay and if you do want to buy what you looked at, give them a ridiculous price and when they say no, just walk away. They will do their absolute best to convince you that you need it and that you will have to pay more. If you want to increase your price there and then, just a little, do so but otherwise, stay firm and say if you change your mind, you will promise to come back. If the price is possible, they’ll normally wait for you to get to their door and then call you back saying “ok,ok”. It works a lot, trust me. I’ve been doing it for years. It’s always good to make out you don’t really want it and that your just looking and your happy to walk away. If you can be hard nosed enough to adopt that kind of attitude, you’ll get much better prices and enjoy the experience more as you’ll feel like you’ve achieved a victory against them.
Be wary of being approached by numerous people on the street as you approach the place and also inside. If you speak to any of the people there and let them take you anywhere, they will earn money out of anything you buy as they get paid commission for all sales. It’s better to do the buying on your own.
There are some absolutely fabulous quality fake goods at the market, the bags you can pick up can be almost as good as the real thing, made in real leather, supplies with all the tags/cards etc of the real thing but again, they are not the real thing, never forget when you are negotiating and never be afraid to walk away, there are always another 10 or 20 stores with the same thing and someone will sell you what you want for the price you want to pay, almost always. Once you learn how to push hard, you’ll get to know how hard you can push the store keepers on prices and do better and better. With bags in particular, be careful what quality that you buy, a favourite trick they like to pull off is to tell you a bag is leather and then take a lighter to it to show you it doesn’t burn but there are treatments you can do to PU (which can look like leather) that make it flame retardant so putting a flame to it demonstrates nothing, never forget that. Be sure in your own mind that a bag you want is leather or if not at least have your eyes open to this so you don’t pay too much. I have learnt a lot from my own mistakes over the years...... please try and learn from me and enjoy the experience.
I got home this morning and it was like Christmas in the household today with what I had brought back.

This area is great for shopping local brands. They have great little shops that are great finds and very trendy styles.
You have nany choices of bags/ shoes brands. Not a big shopping mall but if you have not much time is the perfect spot.
