You can greatly enhance your shopping experience in China if you choose to learn Chinese words and phrases that occur often in a retail environment. Here you'll learn Mandarin Chinese phrases for asking a shop assistant can you try something on. You'll also learn Mandarin words relating to the currency called RMB or Yuan, and of course you'll learn how to haggle for a bargain.

China is a shopper's paradise with an abundance of stalls, markets and shopping centers.
