They can close down Xiangyang Market if they want to, Shanghai is still going to be the world capital for fakes. We’ve got the obvious ones: bags, shoes, watches, DVDs, CDs and the like. But we’ve also got fake maps, fake Starbucks and, yes, even fake eggs. And now Sinosplice shows us fake oranges. Well, we imagine it’s the sticker that is fake, not the orange. (It appears these “Nalencia”s have been around for a while. And, for those of you not familiar with American oranges, it should be “Valencia.”)
So, readers, what other fakes have you seen out there in Shanghai? Send photos to photos(at)shanghaiist.com. We thought we’d be able to find a Flickr gallery of Chinese fakes, but we didn’t. This is the closest we came. Got any good “fake” links? Share them below.
