This could be a joke but anyways like I've always said if you can find a walmart you will likely find what you are looking for. So try the nearest walmart store near you!!

Most City Shops carry them, but of course they are pricey, as they only carry this natural brand called Natracareor something like that.  SOMETIMES Carrefour has them, but only ones in "expat" neighborhoods.  Gubei Carrefour usually has them.  My wife usually buys them off of taobao or amazon.cn

 

Good luck or learn to enjoy pads!

Girls here do not use tampons...only pads, and that is pretty much all you will find, unless you are very determined.

Thanks for the answers. I tried several supermarkets (including Walmart), but not much luck. I guess I will buy them online or maybe I should start my own tampon business Smile

 

Thanks anyway!

Hi girls,

 

I know this conversation started a year ago, but still, if my post can help some of you who are still in Shanghai or even in China I would be glad to give you guys some updates! I've tried applicator tampons (got some samples from a ladies night). A brand called Wishu distributes applicator tampons in Shanghai.

This reminds me of one of the funny little stories that occur whilst living in China. One day after eating a typical Chinese meal, the "la duzi" cracked in with me. I headed for a building where I knew there was some public lavatories. However, I knew there would be no toilet paper when I arrived. So in a mad dash, I headed for a small booth type shop in the building concourse. I picked up a pack that I thought contained paper tissues and rushed out leaving the money on the checkout counter. You can guess want is to follow. When I opened the pack, it was actually tampons! laugh

Hi! I also heard from a friend about this brand Wishu! I'm living in Shanghai since 1 year and I asked 2 times my mother to send me a package of tampons!! How can we not find tampons in Shanghai?! So it's cool now I will buy this brand. My friend says we can order on their website, so I will try next time Wink

Yes, actually I can find digital tampons in china (the ob style) but I dont like it!

I also prefer with applicator, doesn't hurt.

Anyway, I didn't order yet, because my friend gave me some samples, but I really want to buy this brand Wishu!

Jonhgreen: the problem is you can find only OB style in the supermarket (when you can find some...)!!! We want Applicator Tampons!

 

Wishu are also safe, imported tampons.

IrvineWelsh: “switch to pads"...?? No Way!!
Applicator tampons are much more convenient and cleaner than pads.

belle_watson: we can find only digital tampons (ob style) at watson.

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
