Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Certainly better and more upmarket than Teemall. Good range of high and mid end boutique stores within the mall. It also has a large foodcourt and variety of good restaurants. Recommended.

    We like Onelink as it is easy to go around. The more you buy, the cheaper the products will be. It is not advisable to just buy one because the cost is just almost similar with regular stores. If you would like to go shopping in numbers, this place is worth a visit.

    Guanzhou was built as a trading city in the 1700's and the whole area was warehousing and trading stores to export Chinese products to the new world.

    The revamped QingPing market area still gives the feeling of the bygone era with bulk bales of everything being traded and packaged for shipping.

    These days they use masking tape and iPhones as their tools.

    There is more than one building, so you should wander through the small streets which still have produce akong either side, and then drift into the 3-4 level buildings packed with all kinds of weird stuff as noted in many posts. Ginseng is a big seller and responsible for some of the pungent aromas you will experience.

    On the street level you will find antique and trinket shops with some real and some replica pieces, coins, opium pipes, swords, walking sticks, pottery and figurines.

    They also have live pets like Aquarium fish, turtles, puppies and kittens along some streets.

    The area takes up a few blocks between Shamian Island and the Holiday Inn hotel. If you go through the underpass under the Holiday Inn, you can wander down into the market area which ends on the large road separating the markets from Shamian Island. After you can head over to Shamian or back to the Holiday Inn which is on one of the 2 old walking streets in old Guangzhou called Dishifu Road. Worth a wander.

    Teemall is a modern and big shoppingmall. Nice stores, I bought some electronic equpment and eat very good ramen at the 6 th floor. Now when Goungzhou has so many malls I guess you can find what you are looking for there also.

    It is a very modern mall, with both luxurious and more affordable brands. You can find clothing, shoes, bags, jewellery, cosmetics, opticians and more more stores as well as an every-growing a number of food outlets. This mall doesn't get as crowded as the other two on either side of it and so makes for a bit more relaxing space though perhaps not on a Saturday..All in all, it is a nice place to walk around, both inside and outside,around the 'grounds', particularly in the evening. I like the fact that one can also walk to Fashion Plaza underground mall directly from PC via an underpass. The only things that bother me is the fact that you have to spend quite a lot of money in order to get free parking(it is extremely expensive!), the nursing rooms (which are nice and cleaned regularly)have speakers in them and music plays very loud(doesn't the management realise that babies often fall asleep while feeding?Most mums (?) don't want to have music blasting right above their heads when they're feeding) and finally, no matter how many times I've been there, I still get lost and have no idea how to get from one shop I want to visit to another if they're in different parts of the mall-incredibly confusing layout. As a side note-why didn't they use the roof space for al fresco dining/bars?GZ really needs venues that offer tables outside and those massive rooftops would be perfect!

    This used to be the pre-eminent mall in Guangzhou and still is quite busy. Interesting that it has a skating rink, amusement park/arcade, and rainforest park all within the complex.

    Many fast food options (asian/western) and also has sit down restaurants.

    Our family including our 3 school-age children had fun there and spent several hours at the mall.

    The range of shopping is from high-end luxury boutiques to bargain shops at the lower level, so a little bit for everyone.

    Just like two years ago SWMBO and I wearing face masks boarded the 181 bus at its terminus just around the corner. We had our temperatures checked and sat in the air-conditioned bus for the journey across the city to the medicine and spice market where SWMBO bought tea and some dried orange peel which SMBO assures is a great addition to tea and soups.

    We then carried on walking to the pedestrian walkway which spans the monstrous traffic intersection, climbed the circular stairs and then descended to the ancient foot bridge onto Shamian Island.

    We walked around Shamian Island and indulged in a cup of tea and a slice of cake (expensive and mediocre) each while sheltering from the afternoon heat and humidity (36C and 70%). Be aware that everything is expensive on Shamian Island.

    We then retraced our steps, crossed the bridge, and headed for the fish market.
    Its official name is Huangsha Aquatic Products, but everybody calls it The Fish Market. All I can say about the market that if comes out of the sea and it’s not a submarine it’s for sale in the market.

    Just be aware there’s water and ice everywhere because the aquatic products are expected to be fresh. The smell is also rather overpoweringly fishy. Also be aware that the rolling pin on a stall isn’t for rolling pastry but for killing fish, if you’re a little squeamish best not to watch or you won’t enjoy your next fish dinner.

    It’s a busy place with huge trucks squeezing through the narrow roads while mopeds and tuck-tucks weave in between.

    Oh dear! The price of salmon has nearly doubled since our last visit. Nothing under ¥100 a jin, and SWMBO settled for a stall selling at ¥108 a jin.

    Note: salmon in Chinese is 三文鱼 (san, wen, yu)。

    Note: a jin is half a kilo, i.e 500 grams, and it’s the most common weight measure in China. There are 460 grams to the pound.

    SWMBO bought five jin. Two as a present to a good friend, and three for me. The salmon was sliced in very nice ‘steaks’ contrary to the usual thin slices used for sushi in the Japanese restaurants and take-aways dotted around the city.

    Another jin of alive shrimps was also popped into our shopping bag. All packed in ice for our taxi ride home.

    SWMBO cooked me a salmon steak with garlic, onion and chill, accompanied by plain boiled white rice for dinner. I washed it down with a glass or three of Great Wall Chardonnay. A delicious end to an afternoon’s adventure.

    This mall, hidden mostly underground next to Guangzhou East (dong) railway station is very good with stores both for the tourist and expat. Stores included Xiaomi, Lego, Uniqlou, a fakeish Scandinavian design store with made up Nordic names of goods (not NoMe), Muji, Aeon (grocery) and many more high quality international and Chinese brands. Many of the restaurants in the food court are also good. IKEA is also across the road.

    After exiting from Tiyu West station on Line 1. this Festival Mall is straight ahead at exit E. It is one of the easiest underground mall to navigate as it consists of two rows of shops.

    Well if you are around Zhongshan Street then you can't really miss seeing this multi-storied building, which seems to be extremely popular with the locals. Lots of floors of stores. Not exactly a high end mall, but i'm sure you will find something useful. Lots of kids activity places here as well.
