“Hold on to your wallet..!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

The actual name of this place is "Dong Men" which is east gate in English... Benn here many times to meet people who live in the area... Every person in Shenzhen knows this place... It is packed with hundreds of small cheap clothing stores... If you are a normal to larger sized person you probably won't find your size... It is one of the 2 most crowded shopping areas in Shenzhen... Go here on a weekend if you want to find out what crowded truly is... Also, watch your wallet as it has the highest crime rate in Shenzhen for pick-pockets and notorious for fake money scams (you give them money and they go to put it in the cash register only to turn around and tell you the money you gave them is fake and they will give you back fake money if using 100 RMB notes or getting back fake money as change)... As a foreign person you will stand out as an unknowing target in both cases... About the only point of interest is the 1st Mc Donalds in China is here (1986)..!

“great fashion boutique in Dong Men”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2010

ladies would love this boutique - ME! ! Nestled on the 2nd floor ( 202B ),Kowloon City shopping center in Dong Men, this outlet stands out from the multitude of clothing stores -a boutique set-up of hand picked garments for complete individuality! The proprietress Michelle has a keen fashion flair and has new design offerings on a weekly basis - I was absolutely thrilled with my selections. Great service and prices!
