2000 Shiji Dadao
A trip to AP Plaza will remind you exactly why you love living in China. One of Shanghai’s few remaining truly great fake markets, this Aladdin’s cave offers all the knock-off clothing, accessories and souvenirs you could dream of. Fear not, there are no questionable ‘Mikes’, ‘Wans’ or ‘Babidas Spam Smiths’ here. Snag reasonable quality fake-branded trainers (Vans, Nikes, Converse), ‘Beats’ headphones and ‘Hunter’ rain boots for 150RMB or less. Luxury fakery is also available, hidden within the rabbit warren of market stores where, if you ask, you’ll find almost-real Louis Vuitton or Gucci handbags for around 200-250RMB. Market rules apply here, so haggle hard, start at 10 percent of the asking price and never pay more than 30 percent of the original price.
