Hi Olivia, from late Dec. to early Jan., the average temperature in Jiangxi is from 3-10°C. It is cold, please prepare warm clothes. Actually Jiangxi is not a good place for clothes shopping. I recommend Guangzhou to you. There are lots of wholesale markets in Guangzhou, as well as a large number of factories. http://www.chinahighlights.com/guangzhou/shopping.htmWhitney Liao replied on 2012-12-05
