Best shopping city in China

Hello All,

Firstly, I apologise for such a shallow posting but we are 4 women aged 21-45 that would like to travel to China on a shopping trip for 1 week early next year (either March/April/May). Between us we have lots of children and a couple of grandchildren, therefore, we cannot afford the more upmarket shopping in China and would prefer to find good quality items at a good price, please let me stress we are happy to pay for the quality but want to do lots of shopping so hoping the dollar goes along way.

I am trying to be specific a possible in regards to our situation as I feel its not worth doing the research on a particular area then it ending up we go somewhere else.

I know there is lots of shopping advice on the forums and I have looked at many posts. At this point in time I just need to find the right city for us and then do the research.

I have had so much conflicting advice so if anyone can help me out that would be great.

Also, if we go to Beijing in any of those months will the prices have already gone up? (due the coming Olympics)

The correct answer is Guangzhou, but try to go before the annual spring trade fair in April.
