Qipu Lu


Corner at Qipu Lu

Unlike the three previous markets, Qipu Lu consists of multiple malls that don’t necessarily sell fake products but discount clothing—hence the name Qipu, pronounced like cheap. Many products are so inexpensive and obviously fake that shop owners refuse to bargain altogether. Qipu Lu is by the far the largest, loudest and most hectic shopping destination I visited. Due to its chaotic atmosphere, bargain-basement prices and unique brand mashups, I visited Qipu Lu on four separate occasions. Qipu Lu is a shanzhai seeker’s paradise.
