The name says it all, and it lives up to its name! Women’s World at Huaqiangbei is a five-floor mall just for women, covering just about all of a women’s needs, so yes, it has loads and loads of girly stuff. Here you can find clothes, accessories, beauty parlors, cosmetics, jewelry and much more.
Being at Huaqiangbei means the men can run off and look to a nearby mall and look at electronic gadgets while you cruise the jam-packed, independently operated stalls. At a rough count, there’s over 300 stores spread across the five floors.
The first floor has a real chaotic market feel to it with stock just bulging from the stalls in which the staff stand elevated in the middle, looking down onto their wares and dealing with the hundreds of people that can be squeezing their way through the narrow aisles.
To avoid the crowds, it’s best to go early, and on a weekday if possible. I believe like most malls it opens at 10 am and closes late. As for pricing, some items may be on sale with as marked prices, but don’t be afraid to haggle, and don’t be afraid to peruse the multitude of stalls, checking prices, style, and quality before returning to a selected stall to enter into the price negotiation.
What can you get there: fashion, beauty care products, makeup, jewellery, undergarments, jeans, dresses, shirts, accessories etc. etc.
Price: Low to Mid, haggle your way to a great deal.
Quality: As for anything with a brand name on the box, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t! Probably isn’t. Bargain accordingly. Double check all items prior to payment.
How to get there: Get off the subway at Huaqiang Lu station (metro line 1) and wander out exit A and walk 5 mins north up Huaqiang Bei Lu (also referred to as Huaqiang North Road- Bei means north and Lu means road). You can’t miss the shopfront on Huaqiang Bei Lu and it’s located on the block between Zhenhua Rd and Zhenxing Rd.
Update: You can also take Metro Line 2 and get off at Huaqiang North Station or Metro line 3 and get off at Huaxin Station.
