    The new concept shop in Hangzhou might be a nice place to visit.
    Lots of vintage Gs and some latest models on display, and Hangzhou is a tourist town as well. (That's what I heard...)
    But if you are thinking about doing some shopping in china, I'm afraid you may feel disappointed. You'll find most of the Gs are twice more expansive than in the US. This is probably due to the nature of the chinese market. Not just casio, practically all of the brands you know place higher prices there. The immense number of customers eliminates the competition between companies. There's just no point reducing the price.

    It's like a different world there.

    Taiwan's got low custom tax for Japanese and American products. Sometimes there are some really good deals. (Especially if you are good at bargaining ) But I don't think we have those awesome shops displaying whole collections of vintage Gs like those in HongKong or Tokyo.
