Shopping in Leshan

Leshan is rife with souvenir stands and shops, most of which are full of the usual trinkets, tea, arts & crafts and other touristic memorabilia. Bamboo products are popular, including bamboo weavings and tender bamboo shoot, which can be had fresh or dried. 

As a mid-sized Chinese city, Leshan offers a bit of everything, and on a manageable scale: modern malls, brand-name stores and small, old-fashioned mom & pop shops are all on hand. It's a pleasant place to spend half a day or more wandering and exploring, and the prices are certainly lower on the whole than in larger cities.

If you're looking for something unique in the area, your best bet is locally produced tea. Emei Tea, the Jasmine Tea is very popular and served as a good souvenir. If you have enough time, it's worth visiting a few tea shops and sampling the goods before purchasing.

Other popular items include various medicinal herbs, many of which flourish in the unique microclimates found on Emei Shan and other area mountains. Be careful with these, as some can be toxic if taken the wrong way or in too great a quantity.
