Many tourists say that they usually do not know what to buy when they are touring a place.

Regarding the tourism shopping, the director-general of the National Tourism Administration of China Shao Qiwei once said, "Many tourists will definitely buy watches in Switzerland, buy leather goods in Italy and buy small electrical household appliances in Japan. I suggest that tourism regions of China should learn something from these countries and have their own special tourism commodities."

Currently, some provinces and cities in China have listed their highly-recommended tourism products. Here are some for tourists to refer to.


Wangzhihe preserved bean curd, Quanjude roast duck, Red Star Erguotou (liquor), souvenir series of Water Cube, Front Gate Yingxiang tea set, Rongbaozhai woodcut paintings, Lenovo digital products, Neiliansheng cloth shoes, Wangmazi scissors, and violin series of Pinggu District
