Description

Shenzhen used to be a small town and has developed over recent years into a thriving city with a huge commercial center of its own. It is popular for business and tourists alike, but is especially known as the Mecca for shoppers who like to purchase handbags, wallets and watches. Join us in a 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? Clothing and shoes are available in abundance, and personal tailoring is available for anyone wishing to have a favorite item fixed. Your fixed item can be delivered 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 varied fabrics available from the lightest Thai silks to best quality wool and cashmere. If you have an hour or more to spare, visit the beauty shops that offer mani/pedi’s, massages, even a quick wash & blow-dry so you can go home feeling totally refreshed. The journey to China commences at Hung Hom station in Kowloon. I usually meet my groups of 1-4 people at 9.30am at Starbucks on the Mezzanine floor of the station. At Starbucks, we can 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 this would take longer, meaning less shopping time in Shenzhen. We will take the MTR from Hung Hom to the border station of Lo Wu, which approximately takes 45 minutes. The exit and entry forms to China will be provided for completion by all parties. A visa is required to enter China, but if you do not have a visa, it 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 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 crowded at lunch times. The trip ends when we return to Hung Hom MTR station and I take you to the correct taxi for your hotel location. (There are different queues for taxis to addresses on Kowloon or those crossing to Hong Kong island.) DAFEN ART VILLAGE in Shenzhen Dafen is a village famous for artists producing copies of many famous works of art and also their own original paintings. There are many shops and studios where you can watch some of the artists at work. Paintings of all sizes can be purchased at an extremely low price. They can be bought unframed and rolled up for easy transport back home, or can be framed and shipped home if preferred. You can even commission an artist to paint an image of your choice. How about a self portrait? Want to immortalize your favorite landscape? Just bring a picture and one of these talented artists will help you out. Dafen Village is an interesting place to visit and its appeal is not strictly limited to art lovers.
