Next stop, Shenzhen

Rennie Tse

PLA surplus, psychedelic home accessories, monk's sandals and dancing shoes: there's more to Shenzhen shopping excursions than bad manicures and fake luxury goods, especially if you're looking for a so-kitsch-it's-cool Chloe-esque tiger top. Armed with a little imagination and a lot of patience, we spent an afternoon rifling through the Army Supply Centre and combing Luo Hu Commercial City. The grand total? Not much more than $2,000. Bargaining is up to you.

Having difficulty explaining where you want to go? Here are the addresses in Chinese:
