The Huitao Costume Co. Ltd. is another place worth visiting. Young though it is, Huitao has become one of the leaders in the costume industry. Connected with local mainstream TV stations such as Guangdong TV and Guangdong Southern TV, it is frequented by local Yue Opera fans, artists and foreign tourists, some of which are avid collectors.

There are a number of other costume providers on Renmin Nan Road, as well, providing both ready-for-sale, machine-made pieces and elaborate hand-made ones too. Made-to-order service is also available in these shops, but you had better avoid the busy season around the Spring Festival.
