Guangzhou is really a "Paradise for the Shoppers" to tourists. Guangzhou is the best shopping place in China and Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street is one of the top shopping center in Guangzhou. Just like Wangfujing street in Beijing, Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street is located in the Liwan District of Xiguan, a prosperous traditional commercial district. This shopping area is also a showcase of traditional Cantonese architecture, especially pretty at night when it's lit up. Prices there are generally lower than those in Beijing road Pedestrian Street, but you'd better prepare to bargain a fair bit.

It is as long as 1218 meters and has more than 300 shops of different kinds, which is truly one of the most prosperous commercial center in Guangzhou. It extraordinary architecture- "Qilou " is unique in China, which only exists in Guangzhou and its neighbourhood areas. It is both beautiful and practical. People can shop here in any weather conditions in the artistic corridors. Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street attracts so many people both from home and abroad that more than one hundred thousand people visit here every day.

Shangxiajiu is composed of the unique and ancient architecture of Tong Lau and teahouses, featuring the characteristics of European and Chinese styles. It has a group of old famous stores, such as the Guangzhou Garment Store, the Herring Shoes and Hats Store, and the Dalu Clock and Watch Store.
