The Pinyu Clothes Shop is located in a bookstore. So the atmosphere in the shop is very different from that of shopping centers. Wooden floor, soft light, and melodious music are all welcoming customers.


The items on display are all very Chinese. Traditional Chinese shoes are the most popular. They are made of colorful cotton, and their sole is in cow hide. According to the owner, the colors will not fade after washing, and the soles are stable. Six months after I bought a pair, I can say that the soles are durable.


You can also find traditional Chinese clothes, designed in the style of Qipaos (a one-piece dress characterized by an upright collar, an opening from the neck to under the right arm, and a fairly narrow cut, often with a slit) and Hanfus (full-length, one-piece robe which wraps up the body and attaches with a belt). The clothes are mainly in cotton.


Prices for shoes hover around RMB 200. Dresses sell for RMB 100-500.


Shop assistants are all hospitable. Their uniforms are of good design. If asked they will advise you as to how to match your clothes best. Some of them speak English.
