Cheongsam, or Chinese traditional dress, emerged in Hong Kong in the 1920s. This is a great souvenir for ladies because while it does boast Chinese culture, it is an elegant, stylish piece of clothing that can be worn to different occasions. It doesn’t hurt either that the cheongsam’s cut is figure-flattering, too.
Its male counterpart, the changshan, might be a little too costume-y to wear on most days, but its modern version, the mao suit, is a lot more casual yet is still of historical significance.
