At first sight you must think that you do not need a guide for such a thing as buying stuff in Shanghai BUT after years of going with business partners and friends to shop, I have realised that in most cases, you actually need someone to guide you with the prices and qualities.

起初你肯定认为在上海不需要一个导游来为买东西而服务,但是多年后与商务合作方和朋友去购物是,我意识到大多数情况下,你实际上需要有人在价格和质量上来指导你。

It will make this tour worth your money, I'm sure that you will end up saving much more money than what the tour costs!

这物有所值,我确信你会在此省下很多钱。

I have done this for years and I actually love to go to little shops to buy things for myself and discover places apart from the well known fake markets and tailor markets.

我已经在这行干了多年,我也实际上喜欢去小店为我自己买东西,去发现远离知名假货市场的地方和裁缝市场。

Not get me wrong, they are good places to shop too, but I have a list of multiple places I can take you depending on your needs.

别误会,它们都是一些购物的好地方。只要你需要,我有一系列的地方可以带你去。

Tailor markets are good if you want to copy some cloth that you love and you already have, but I wouldn´t recommend you to just take a photo of a dress and copy it (also note that it takes one week for the tailors to get the clothes done).

如果你想要按照你喜欢的和你已经有的衣服来做一些衣服,裁缝市场是一个好地方。但我不会推荐你仅是拍张衣服的照片来照着做(请留意裁缝需要花一周的时间来完工

Or maybe you love leather bags but you don´t want one with the words Prada on it, I can take you to a square-meter shop where an artisan makes all the bags by himself.

或者你想要一个皮包,但不想要一个普瑞达的字母在上面,我可以带你去一个小店,那里的手艺人会自己做所有的包。

He is just sitting there, in the middle of around 50 bags sewing and designing.

他只是坐在那里,坐在大约50只包的中间,缝制着,设计着。

Souvenirs can be bought not only in the fake markets but also at Yuyuan, and there it is cheaper and there is more variety.

纪念品不仅能在假货市场买到,也能在豫园买到。在豫园买的话,更便宜些,品种更多。

If you want a silk blanket don´t go to the Silk Museum... Let me take you to where my mother has been going since I was a kid.

如果你想要一条丝绸毯子,不要去丝绸博物馆。让我来带你去我小时候我妈妈经常带我去的地方。

Glasses? Tea? Just tell me what you want and we will design the perfect route so you can buy the best and most unique places in the most convenient shops!

眼镜?茶?只要告诉我你想要什么,我们会设计最好的路线,这样你可以在最便利的商店买最好和最精美的。

We will mostly move from one place to other by cab but sometimes it might be better to get the subway to avoid traffic jams, but that's up to you!

我们绝大多数情况都是乘小巴从一个地方去另一个地方,但有时或许会乘地铁避免交通堵塞,这取决于你。

What makes me different from other people?

是什么让我不同于其他人?

Well, I was born and grew up in Spain (so I won´t have any problems to communicate with you and also, I am more aware of the tastes and standards that you might be looking) but with Chinese parents (so I am native in Shanghanese and Chinese, and well, you can´t imagine how nicer salespeople get when I start to speak in Shanghanese, especially when the one who is selling is a mid-age woman).

恩,我在西班牙出生和成长(所以我在和你交流上不会有任何问题,我也更能知道你或许寻找中的品味和标准),但和中国父母居住(所以我是一个本土的上海人和中国人,你无法想象当我开始说上海话时,尤其卖主是一个中年妇女,卖主是多么的好

This double identity is very useful and I have been coming to Shanghai every summer since I was a kid and have been living permanently here for two years so I guess I am a good insider!

这种双重身份非常有用,我自小每年夏天都来上海,我已经在这边永久居住了2年,所以我猜我是一个很好的圈中人。

I will teach you bargaining techniques so if you ever come back here you will be self-dependent! And also, we will have a lot of fun! Who wouldn´t when shopping?

我会教你还价技巧,所以如果你曾回来,你会自立。我们也会有很多欢乐。当购物,谁不会呢?
