I can highly recommend booking a shopping tour with Suzy. We spent 2 weeks in China visiting Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. Every tour we went on booked by the CITS included some form "unplanned shopping opportunity" because the guides get kick-backs from the businesses which became very frustrating. When we met up with Susy in Shanghai at the end of our trip, we spent 3 hours shopping. We had shirts made for my husband, pearl necklaces made for friends and family, and we bought silk pyjamas and a beautiful bedspread/inlet (which we totally love). Susy is wonderful and has a great personality but the best advice she gave us was to have fun as we negotiate our prices.
