Chinese especially like buying these luxury stuffs abroad since they are much cheaper than in China. But as a student, I don't understand why we need an LV bag, especially if purchasing it with our parents money. Also, I don't like the idea that "People look down on me if I don't have a LV bag". If you are really rich that you can afford a LV easily, why not? But if you want it just because of what other people say, it is just "Xu Rong Xin" (vanity) like we say in Chinese.

The number of Chinese families able to afford overseas holidays is expected to double in the next 10 years. (LIU DEBIN/CHINA DAILY )
