Macau Wholesale Clothing
Q: Can you please tell me what area of Macau is good for wholesale fashion clothing? I will have just one day in Macau later this year and I need to know the best place to go.
To our knowledge, Macau is not known for the wholesale of clothes, or for shopping in general. There are some clothes-makers in the city, but no large markets. There are clothing shops on Avenida de Horta e Costa (Gaoshide Dajie), Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida (Helan Yuan), Avenida do Infante Dom Henrique (Yinhuangzi Dajie), and in Zone Nam Van (Nanwan Damalu). There are some clothes-makers and shops near Rua dos Mercadores? (Yingdi Dajie), Rotunda de Carlos da Maia (Sanzhandeng), or Ruins of St. Paul's, where you can probably find some inexpensive clothes, epspecially of traditional Chinese style. For more information about products of Macau, you can try http://madeinmacau.net/, which is run by the association of Macau manufacturers.
Some flea markets are located in old city Macau, on Rua dos Ervanários (Guanqian Zhengjie) and Rua de Nossa Senhora do Amparo (Guanqian Houjie), close to Ruins of St. Paul's.
If you're serious about buying clothes wholesale, you should probably go to Shenzhen, Humen and Guangzhou, where you'll find large wholesale markets. They're just a couple of hours away from Macau and Hong Kong. The difference is that you need a visa to go to these cities whereas most likely you can travel to Macau and Hong Kong visa-free.
