There are no two ways about it: Shanghai is the best city in China in which to partake in some good old-fashioned retail therapy. From contemporary ceramics to kitsch-but-cool trinkets; retro ‘80s Chinese sneakers (that sell for 10 times their price in Europe) to edgy Chinese designers, Bespoke’s tour is customized and flexible depending on what you’re into. Whether you have a specific item in mind, or just want a handful of souvenirs from China’s hippest city, our crack team of shoppers is poised to help you uncover the very best in town.
