Summary Of This Trip To Shenzhen China

By on June 11, 2009

If you plan to visit Shenzhen China to source for electronics related information like books, parts, test equipment and etc there are some guidelines that you need to take:


1) Book a hotel that is near to the electronic center like Hua Qiang Bei. This would save you lots of time and I’ve seen there were few hotels along the road. Since this was my first time to China we booked the hotel which located about 15 minutes from the electronic center.


2) If you plan to bring along your family then 4 days 3 nights would not be enough. You need at least a week there. However this also depends on what are the things you wanted to source.


3) Do your homework first before you go as this could save you plenty of time. Find the addresses of the electronics shops (from Google and etc) so that you can straight away go to their shop without searching floor by floor and from one building to another.


4) If you do not understand Mandarin (Chinese Language) you can always engage a translator to help you. I was informed that one can pick your choice of translator (male or female) in the center and they are charging from USD120 to USD150.00 per day and they will follow you wherever you go. Since I have Kent with us (he is very good in Mandarin), we have no problem in communicating with them.


5) The weather now is quite hot (about 30 to 35 Celsius). If you plan to go on cold weather then you can start to go on Mid of November till March and the temperature is about 10 to 12 Celsius.


That’s all for now and hope you have enjoyed my journey to Shenzhen China. If you have any question please do email me and I will try my best to answer you.

    That was great Jestine. You are indeed very helpful.
    But how can one who wants to visit and get trained by you get to you? Or do you have any information on training centers in Shenzhen that one can go for training?
    Thanks and may God bless you as you respond to this mail

    Hi Chukwuma,

    Currently we do not accept international applicants as there are too many procedures need to be done. As for the training in China, sorry i do not have information on it. I guess you may need to search from the Internet for such training center.

      Hi Jestine the problem with the training centres in Shenzhen is that you won't get far with the teachings, theory more than practical, if want to train there better train with the repair shops there from there you can experience various faults and experience hands on with new products.I have 2 friends send to train in shenzhen for 4 months and he says practical only after you are about to finished the course, so I am not trained in Shenzhen but fully practical, now this friend is asking me help. It's better to train like Jestine style finished and with online backing. I studied Laptop fully practical 3 4 days course , one to one by my 2 laptop masters. Imagine 7 days fully practical course and I have repaired numerous laptops. My repair range is 8 out of ten success.Anyway thanks Jestine your teachings have given me the first time to repairing, Thank you.

        Hi Lim,

        That was an interesting piece of advice. Seeing you successfully in this repair field is my great joy. In fact your success is from your own hard work. Give a pat on your back.

    Hi, Justin,
    We have set up a small workshop in Singapore to train some residents of the boy's home ( problem kids or kids from broken families) to build some skills. We are planning to expand into LCD panels test & repair and note that you're an expert in this region. Would like to know if u have any plans to expand your expertise in S'pore or have reliable friend(s) who want to start something here? Understand u are very busy and would appreciate even if its a short reply. Thank you.
    p/s : If everything goes well, we could be testing and repairing at least 3000 pcs of laptop LCD panels every month

    HI Chan,

    Thanks for the comment but sorry at the moment i have no plan yet to expand to other country. You mean your side do not repair LCD Monitor problem like no power, no display but only test and repair LCD Panel?

    Good advice, in going to Shenzhen, correct you have to have a translator, because we dont even recognize a FIRE STATION with out a fire truck park in front of a building, cause almost all signages are in chinese, and  in riding buses, some are accepting only those passengers with out  big bags as hand carry, and on restaurants no water available only TEA and TEA  and tea always, no spoon or pork hehe. Practice using chop sticks, and have your pass port always just in case you cross rivers like going to HONG KONG or by land. 
    Just sharing experience at Shenzhen.
