    Shopping in China. China is a shoppers' paradise where one can purchase luxury goods at a very modest price. If you shop at the factory, you save even more. Therefore, we organise visits to pearl farms, embroidery factories, etc., where you will see the production process and then shop at the factory outlet. When you see the thousands of unique products available for sale, you will be surprised by both the high quality of merchandise and the creativity of Chinese artisans. There is of course no obligations to buy anything.
