Many shops are selling paper digital devices, including the newest laptops and iPhone 4S, as Qingming Festival, or Tomb-Sweeping Day, approaches.
In addition, a full range of goods made of paper such as commodities, clothes and health tonics are on sale.
The paper offerings reflect what is popular in our society, said one shopkeeper.
Qingming Festival, which falls on April 4 this year, is a centuries-old tradition in China for families to remember ancestors and loved ones who’ve passed.
