Sorry I don't have time to do a search right now. We just arrived in Shanghai today. My husband had bought 4 nice lighters at a very good price for gifts at the Pearl Market in Beijing but unfortunately they got confiscated at the Airport Security :-( I did lots of research for our trip but forgot to check what the rules were for airport security. I just assumed it would be the same. We're used to carry lighters through security & didn't realize it would be an issue here. They didn't require us to take our shoes off, they didn't have us pull out all our little 3oz liquid containers but they would not allow the lighters. We should have put them in the check in bag.
Anyways, my husband has his heart set on bringing back some lighters for gifts. Is there a place in Shanghai that we can find good deals on lighters similar to the "Zippo" brand?
