Typical, average Chinese neighbourhood plaza
Apr 2018
This is a medium-size, three-level, neighbourhood (not large regional) plaza. It provides most of the essentials. One of the biggest anchors is a large grocery store, at which the produce looked very good. It is home to a McDonald’s, nice and fairly large bakery where the fresh baking adds a nice aroma to the air, many clothing stores, shoes, eyewear, Mini So (a Japanese chain offering good quality goods at very reasonable prices), a pharmacy, other eateries, jewelry, and many more. I stopped and looked around while I was en route to Renwei Temple. The temple was about a ten-minute walk for me. It was raining, so I took my time trying to avoid the puddles. Good mall, but nothing out of the ordinary. For non-essentials, I’d go elsewhere. GZ has many great malls, more than ten times this size. Before I commence my trips, I take a photo of my destination names in both English and Chinese. Then en route, I’ll ask for directions whenever I am concerned that I might not be going the right way. I traveled by Guangzhou Metro (subway) to get to HengBao Plaza. My final leg was on Line 1, where I exited at Changshou Lu Station. Exit D1 from the station took me to HengBao Plaza. The toilet on the second floor of the Plaz did not provide visitors with any tissue or even paper to dry your hands with. Thus, Travel Tip re toilets: There are many public, restaurant, and other toilets throughout Guangzhou. However, few supply tissues. Thus, to be safe, always carry an adequate supply of tissue. Most of these toilets are dirty, have water for washing, but supply nothing to dry yourself with.

Had all I needed

Didnt do much shopping here so cant comment on that, but there is a grocery store which came in very handy especially since they close around 10-10:30pm depending on the day. There are also restaurants on level 3 - our favourite was called Tao Heung, opposite the games arcade. We ate there 3 times in 2 days - amazing food and dim sum from 7am on weekends. The plaza is connected to Changshou train station which is handy, and has a mickey d's at the bottom if you get desperate.

Great Central Point to start Sight Seeing all around

I came to this mall a lot because it was only two metro stops from where I was staying - a stop called Changshou where Hengbao Plaza was.

The modern mall itself was only three floors including an excellent, large supermarket. The first two levels held the usual retail stores: clothing, footwear, bakeries, etc. The top floor had some really nice restaurants of which an Italian one, Saizeriya, was one I went back to multiple times for dinner during my stay. It as exceptionally affordable and the food very good. All the restaurants on the top floor looked wonderful and had long waiting lineups after 5 pm.

Hengbao Plaza also has lower basement levels, one of which feeds into the metro system. The lower levels have smaller, side by side, boutique vendors and lots of fast food places like KFC, MacDonalds, as well as some nice restaurants.

This Changshou metro stop & Hengbao Plaza is a good springboard to explore other major areas all around it. From one end is a street that seems endless for jewelery stores. Remember, in China, that businesses of one type tend to be placed together in one area. It led to other jewelery store streets which led into big jewelery buildings. Jade, gold are prominently promoted for sale everywhere here.

At the other end of Hengbao Plaza you exit into major, famous, shopping streets which are most fun, including one very wide, famous, pedestrian one. I did lots of shopping in this area.

Hengbao Plaza is great in itself for shopping for footwear, clothing, jewelery, snacks, accessories. There is an excellent bakery at one end and my favourite were donuts twists. During the Lunar Festival there were lots of bargains too. I loved having meals at this mall in particular.
