  Diff varieties of honey
by hooiluangoh

This shop is located right outside Carrefour. But there are a lot of other shops who get their supply from Yunnan.

What to buy: HONEY. Many different types of it. From different flowers. With different medicinal property, from skincare to holistic health.
You have to ask the staff what is for what, they also have a brochure but usually they won't let you take it away.

But you may want to make sure that the shop is proper because a lot of shops fill their honey into unwashed plastic bottles which smell of chemical.

Over here it is common to just add honey to warm water, stir and drink. You don't have to use it as spread. It can also replace sugar in your soyabean milk !

What to pay: About RMB 10 to RMB 25, depending on which type, and the size.

Like 500g of pipa honey = RMB 10.
