Located side by side in Luohu, near the King Glory Plaza, are two wholesale markets for clothes and fashion accessories where you can find countless independent retailers/wholesalers spread across the two multi floor buildings.
Most locals seem to refer to the market by the name of the building they are located in which is the Nanyang Building and the Haiyan building. The English names, as displayed on the buildings, for the actual markets are the Longteng World Fashion and in the other building the Petrel Fashionable Dresses. The two buildings are side by side and joined by a walkover on the second floor.
Most of the traders squeeze themselves, and their stock, into small cubicles with clothes lining the walls, floors and often bags of stock spilling out into the hallway. Some are geared more towards selling bulk lots and are not very retail focused in that some stores don’t offer the ability to ‘try on’ any garments whereas others have a strong attention to retail shoppers, with fashionable displays and they’re are quite pleased for you to try on for size etc.
A word of warning for first-time visitors, this isn’t a shiny glossy mall where hand chosen goods are presented on brightly lit displays (although some are), here you have to search through to find the ‘diamond in the rough’ so to speak. But for many, that’s part of the fun and the savings are the reward.
