Until recently, Liuzhou was most famous for two unusual objects – coffins and stones.  Its coffins were made from local top quality wood –and the Chinese had a saying”Be born in Suzhou, live in Hangzhou, eat in Guangzhou and die in Liuzhou.” Although said in jest, as the most attractive Chinese are from Zukhou and Hangshou is the prettiest city, it is a little dark for Liuzhou.

In May 2013, however, it was announced that seven new shopping centres with a total investment of 42 billion yuan ($6.85 billion) were to be built in Liuzhou. This is a reflection of both Liuzhou investment bureau desire to create thousands of jobs, and also the explosion of retail expenditure.

The seven projects have been backed by 6 investors, including China’s top real estate developer, Wanda Group.  Intended as a one-stop shopping extravaganza The Liuzhou Wanda Plaza will feature various shops, restaurants, along with entertainment and sports venues. It will be located in Donghuan Road. Investors believe that shopping complexes like this bring together business people, hotel guests and locals in one commercial mixing pot.The Shenzhen-based Overseas Chinese Town plans to build a Culture Complex, including a high-tech park and a water theme park, scheduled to open to the general public in May 2015.
