Q: where can I buy Chinese porcelain tea set in Shanghai?

I'm gonna go to Shanghai on a business trip next week. My wife would like me to buy a Chinese porcelain tea set. My time will be limited, so what is the best place to go to for buying tea set? Thanks.

Limited time. I'd go look in a department store. Most cups&bowls sections will have some sets to chose from, probably starting from pretty cheap to silly expensive.
I am not local to Shanghai, so cannot give a specific suggestion.

Any good Tea shop

Alternatively, wait until you are in the duty-free in the airport on your way home

Be sure to bargain as much as you can if there is no price displayed, otherwise they will see you coming

 

good luck

I went to a factory outlet in Xi'an, I bought 2 nice sets, they've been sitting in the original boxes for years.

There are stores like our Dollar stores that sell many different little tea cups cheap and cheap tea sets, but the tea sets aren't porcelain.

 If you have limited time, I would recommend shopping online. Checkout www.craftbro.com, you may find what you want there.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
