Located near Huanshi Donglu, Taojin Lu is a famous street in Guangzhou, known by locals and expats alike for a number of nice restaurants and shops. Yuexiu District authorities have recently decided to transport this small road into Guangzhou’s “Wall Street” with large LED screens broadcasting live the fluctuations of the stock market.
A street that passes through a great shopping area for clothes, especially women’s clothes… Shooting off from Taojin Lu, there are many small side streets, each of which has a share of small, independent fashion shops, with funky names, designs and clothes…!
Taojin Lu seems well suited for its new role as a “financial street”. The name itself means “gold” is Chinese and today 11 financial organisations are already located here including the Bank of China, the China Industrial and Commercial Bank, the Construction Bank of China, the Agricultural Bank of China, the Bank of Communications and Standard Chartered Bank.
There three closely-located shopping arcades lie on Huanshi Dong Lu and make up Guangzhou’s “golden triangle,” an area packed with luxury office buildings, hi-end hotels and night venues for the rich and powerful. They boast expensive luxury products, genuine foreign suits and other clothes, branded cosmetics products. Here you will find all your favorite brands like Chanel, Pierre Cardin, Louis Vuitton and so on.
