Canton v/s Yiwu wholesale market

Hullo Friends,

I am planning for a canton trip this April and also to Yiwu wholesale market. Is it wise to go to both the places? What is the difference between their approaches? I would be ordering small quantities initially.

Thanks

Abhishek

Yiwu is cheaper in prices and quality, suitable for 3rd world countries and markets. Guangzhou is higher prices and quality, for 2nd world markets.

Not sure I agree that Yiwu is all 3rd world stock. Depends on what you are looking for. Some really good knitted products that wouldn't look out of place in the top retailers. Plenty of not so good stuff too. I find the markets in GZ pretty similar to Yiwu these days. Yiwu had a reputation of being poor quality in the past but my observation was that this was spread by wholesalers trying to put retailers off going there.
