Top recommendations for anyone looking to shop at Guangzhou:
1) Teemall （天河城）
This has always been my favourite of all. The stores here are very upscale but I was able to find some great deals of high quality that last. There are also amazing candy stores with hundreds of different kinds of snacks. Recently they expanded the underground space into a massive shopping centre with interesting graffiti walls to unleash your artistic instincts!
2) Grandview Mall （正佳广场）
One of the largest malls in the world. There is an open skating arena and live sculptures! Both Teemall and Grandview have amazing Christmas decorations. As kids, we once chased down a Santa here!
3) China Plaza （中华广场）
4) Citic Plaza （中信广场）
80-story high and one of the tallest buildings in the world.
5) Pecking Road （北京路）
