It’s a bit of a tourist trap, for both Chinese and Westerners, but this centrally located store (with a sign outside saying ‘Artistic Mansion’) does have a huge selection of potential purchases for anyone hunting for gifts or souvenirs. It’s well known for its jade (with certificates of authenticity), jadeite, cloisonné vases, carpets and other Chinese arts and crafts. There’s also jewellery (gold, silver, jade and pearl) on the first two floors. You’ll find calligraphy, lacquerware, paintings, seals and woodcarvings on the 3rd floor. Head to the 4th floor for jade carvings.
