Private Shanghai Shopping Tour with Local Shopping Guru

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your experienced private shopping guide at your central Shanghai hotel or another central location (depending on the size of your group) at your desired time.

    Then, set off on your fun shopping adventure, traveling with your guide to different retail locations during your tour.

    In general, your first stop will be the popular Shanghai South Bund Fabric Market, home to hundreds of tailors’ stalls selling a huge variety of fabrics. The experienced tailors will use the fabrics available to make up garments and customize shirts, suits, dresses, and coats for you, and also sell scarves, accessories, handbags, gloves, and belts.

    Next, continue to either Hongqiao Pearl Market or Shanghai AP Xingyang Fashion and Gift Market, where you can find all kinds of souvenirs, tea, pearls, porcelains, and electronics, together with good quality knock-off purses, watches, shoes, and other wares.

    Your shopping guide will advise you on how to bargain with the local vendors, so you can enjoy the fun and interest of bartering for the best prices.

    If you have any particular shopping requirements, such as visiting the shops on the famous Nanjing Road, feel free to discuss them with your guide. As your tour is private, the itinerary can be customized to meet your interests.

    Plus, if you want to try some local food during your tour, simply ask your guide to make some good recommendations.

    After your shopping, your tour ends with a drop-off back at your central hotel.
