5 Shopping Places in Shenzhen - A shopaholic's paradise

The main reason why those travelling to China visit Shenzhen is because it is one of the country's premier shopping districts. Here is a list 5 of the best places here for retail therapy:


Luohu Commercial City

The first treat for the shopaholic in you as you enter the borders of Shenzhen by train is Luohu Commercial City. It is quite popular with tourists to Hong Kong due to its convenient location adjoining the border.
