You’ll run into a vast array of lovely boutiques at Teen Mall if you are looking for clothes in Guangzhou, however, the astronomical price tag might probably drive you away as it is unbelievably high. So where should you opt to for clothes that can fit an average budget without compromising on quality?

It is never a difficult task to find affordable clothes in Guangzhou as there are lots of large-scale, famous markets as well as shops around Guangzhou metro lines or in the neighboring outskirt of the city.

The challenge, in the easy task of getting affordable fashion garment in Guangzhou, is to avoid junk during your smart search. Look out not to get imitation even in branded shops or outlet stores. Some people are targeted at replica goods while others are trying to get away from them. However, a neat thing about replicas is that they are now of much better quality, especially 1:1 quality ones than they used to be. It happened to many foreigners that after wearing the shoes or clothes after a couple of times, they tear up because of poor quality. The following are the ins and outs of five famous garment markets in Guangzhou where you can get quality goods on a budget.
