I'm currently in Hangzhou and I want to know if there is anything interesting I can purchase. I'm wondering if there is any interesting tonics or potions or whatever that alleges to provide some personal benefit yet is relatively unknown or not proven by Western science. Could even be some strange device.
Mainly, I intend to send them back to Australia as gifts.
It can be ordinary. Doesn't have to actually work. Needs to be safe.
Suggestions please! Personal anecdotes also welcome.
