Shenyang's Stationary Market

This card is for just one of the many shops in the huge stationary market (xiao dong shi cheng) in the northeast part of the city.  This large market is located near a Carrefour and Decathlon, also blocks away from Global Doctor at Deji Hospital.  Click here for more details on this area.   This card, in particular, is for what I consider the best notebook shop in the entire market.  They have a beautiful selection of Lenwa and other brands.  Prices are fixed and well marked.  It is located in the...

Travel Recommendation: Beautiful Tianzifang Neighborhood in Shanghai

The next time you visit Shanghai, go see the lovely neighborhood of Tianzifang 田子坊 in Pudong.  Located at 210 Taikang Road (泰康路210弄) and Dapuqiao Metro Stop.  There are many cute shops and cafes where you can spend the morning or afternoon.  See local artists, meet people, enjoy a drink and a snack.  Here is one special shop - Deng's Paper Cutting.  Maybe a little expensive, but you can look at the beautiful examples and choose something in a peaceful environment.

New Shops inside Riverside Garden

  Inside Riverside Garden at 215 Qingnian Dajie (across from the Sofitel Lido), there are some new shops.  These include a place where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruits, nuts and grains, and fresh meat.  Next door, there is a convenience store with chips, drinks and snacks.  These shops are located on the 1st floor of the old business building (where the Riverside office was two years ago).  It is in the middle of the RG complex, about 100 meters west of the Riverside Club building where the import...

Star Mall near IKEA

Star Mall (attached to Ikea) has a Pizza Hut, Burger King, frozen yogurt, bubble tea, H+M, Zara, Gap, Zara home, Starbucks, a food court, and Auchan (grocery store with good wine and cheese selection)!  There’s also a free children’s train that takes kids around the mall. The environment inside makes you feel like you’re outside due to all of the windows and since the facility filters their air, this is a great option on bad air days.  Right now, they have a beautiful umbrella display too.  Check it out! Star Mall... [Lire la suite]

Flower & Fish Market in Shenyang

The Welcome to Shenyang blog has posted about various shops in Shenyang flower markets before. About a year ago, we posted this about the wonderful flowers, plants, fish and other products. http://shenyangexpat.canalblog.com/archives/2014/02/23/29222310.html Specifically, we love this little man's succulent shop on the 2nd floor with the plants.  See this:  http://shenyangexpat.canalblog.com/archives/2014/05/12/29612220.html And a reader has just sent this to us as a great reminder.  Thank you!!

DVD Shop is Moving Soon

On our last trip to the DVD shop near Traders, the owner told us he may be moving soon. Possibly at the end of March.  Thanks so much to a reader for updating us on this information!  She said the DVD shop will move to a new place on the same street, to the north direction.  The owner says that we can call him if we don't find the new shop.  His telephone number will be the same.  We still don't know exactly when they will move, but it could be soon.  Keep up to date with info on the blog or email...

Travel Recommendation: Shopping at Spin Ceramics in various cities

For those who enjoy beautiful porcelain and pottery for the table and home, visit Spin Ceramics in Beijing, Shanghai and Changsha.  They have many beautiful pieces for souvenirs and for yourself.   The Beijing shop is close to the 798 Art District.  The Shanghai shop has moved recently and now occupies two floors - there are so many choices!  I haven't visited the new location in Changsha, but maybe one day. Enjoy!

Fleece at the Fabric Market

The nice man at the Nan Er fabric market has a great selection of fleece. We still have some winter left in Shenyang after all. Visit him and the many fabric shops on the same floor of the market near Taiyuan Jie.
