Popular Clothing Markets on Guangzhou’s Guangyuan Xi Lu

Inexpensive clothing markets aren't hard to find in a city built on foreign exports like Guangzhou, but if you need a good starting point, check out Guangyuan Xi Lu (广元西路). Here you'll find an especially dense concentration of cheap clothing markets, mostly destined for export to Africa and Middle Eastern countries. Expect to pay less than 100 RMB per article of clothing, though there may be a few diamonds in the rough that you'll have to shell out a few extra Yuan for. Here are four of the most popular markets along the street.

1) Canaan Export Clothes CityView In Map
Canaan has been catering primarily to African and Middle Eastern buyers since its opening in 2003, but that doesn't mean other shoppers can't find what they're looking for too. Because these clothes come straight from the factory, prices are often lower than what a clothes outlet might pay from a distributor, so a lot of local storeowners come here to shop as well. Bring your friends if you're all looking for similar items; you might get a group discount from a single store.

2) Tangqi Export Clothes CityView In Map
Just a stone's throw from Canaan is Tangqi Export Clothes City, where an estimated 30% of clothing is made specifically for South African and Middle Eastern markets. Great deals abound, but you may have trouble bargaining if you're not buying several items at a time. This is also a great place to visit if you want to feel like you're in Africa without leaving Guangzhou; tons of Nigerian businessmen come here daily and there's a very popular African restaurant on the first floor.

3) Yulong Export Clothes CityView In Map
Situated right next to Sanyuanli subway station (exit D), Yulong is the most conveniently located market on this list. You'll still have to shop around for the best deals, but expect to find higher all-around quality (and prices) here. Don't be deterred by the “wholesale” signs; most stalls will let you buy individual items, and you can often enjoy wholesale discounts for purchasing just three items.

4) Tian'en Clothes CityView In Map
One of the smaller markets on Guangyuan Xi Lu, Tian'en Clothes City deals mainly in sportswear and shoes. Prices are already quite low so further discounts may be difficult to come by. Have a hard time finding big and tall clothing in China? Come here for roomier clothing designed for larger frames.
