La Perle

Pearl design fountain

La Perle is one of Guangzhou’s most exclusive shopping malls and probably hosts the most expensive and most glittering array of shops out of them all. Sat squarely in the middle of the Friendship Store, Baiyun Hotel, and the Garden Hotel, it’s a slice of luxury in the otherwise downtown area of Huan Shi Dong Lu.

La Perle is French for ‘The Pearl’, named after Guangzhou’s Pearl River, and this is reflected in the design of the building which, when viewed from the top floor, could be said to resemble a pearl shape.

The interior is very glossy, and the mall is full of luxury-brand shops ranging from Luis Vuitton, to Prada, and Blvgari. These are all the real deal, so there’s no need to fear about being ripped off with a fake.

In the middle of the mall is a small-but-impressive fountain that periodically squirts five jets of water up four floors and without seeming to cause a mess. It’s a nice effect to watch, although the prowling security guards don’t let you sit anywhere to admire it.

Surprisingly the mall has a decent website that is kept up-to-date and features special promotions and details about the stores. They also have a VIP club membership scheme where a purchase of 25,000 RMB buys you entry, resulting in a special gift, access to a VIP lounge, entry into a prize scheme (with first prize at 180,000 RMB), and various discounts across stores.

Full details of all the stores in La Perle can be found in the Store Directory.
