Third Day In Shenzhen China

By on June 11, 2009

Third Day- In the morning my family gave me a surprise in the hotel room by celebrating my birthday! My wife secretly bought the small cake on the previous day and I’m very happy about it. Guess how old am I now? After that we went down to meet up William and his family together with Kent for breakfast. After breakfast we went to one of the RC Helicopter shop in Gong Mao Building, Zhen Xing Road but again were disappointed because the building have electricity problem causing them to close shop on that day.


Next we went straight to Dong men where the ladies like it very much. The reason for that was because the place sells lots of clothes, shoes, and etc. Again this place is very big and there is no way you can finish shopping in a day. From my estimation you may need at least 2 to 3 days to completely visit all the shops. Since this place is so big you can easily lost and end up at another street! If your wife with you to Shenzhen then makes sure you bring her to this place and surely she will love it. For your information generally ladies love to go for shopping.


After shopping at Dong Men we had our lunch in one of the local Japanese restaurant (Ramen) and the food was very nice. After lunch the ladies brought our kids back to the hotel and the guys, guess where we go? Of course to Hua Qiang Bei again because we still need to look for more electronics information. This is the third day and we need to at least get more contacts so that this trip would be fruitful!


We went to the first building (Wah Keung) located in the Hua Qiang Bei road and began to search for the information that we want. The ground floor have so many electronics booth (just like the one we saw in SEG Electronics Market) and we decided not to visit because we had already visited such booth during the second day in SEG. We tried the second floor and found they have shops selling EEPROM programmer (many types) and the price was quite high and did not buy it. We then went to the third floor-guess what we saw?


We saw many of those small booths together with the bigger shops that deal with laptop repair, spare parts and etc. There are shops also selling printers spare parts like mainboard, fusing film, print head, cartridge and etc. There are many technicians repairing laptops and changing the LCD panel. I went to a shop that specializes only in selling Laptop LCD panel and inverter boards and trying to get more information from them. Time flies and about 6.00pm (they close at 6.00pm) we rush back to our hotel to prepare to go to another hotel to have our dinner.


Since that day was my birthday my partner William treated us a special dinner in the Laurel Restaurant in Century Plaza Hotel. He ordered the famous Roasted Peking Duck plus some of the nice food. At the hotel William’s wife met her old classmate that had worked in China for more than 4 years. She shared her story about China and it was so interesting.  After dinner we went back to our hotel and rest and did not go to other places because it was already late. I will sum up what we have learnt from this trip in tomorrow’s posting. Here are the photos and videos taken on the third day in China:

    Hi John,

    Yes i guess those who involve in this electronic repair field should go and visit at least once in a life time. I may be going for second trip but have not confirm the date yet.

    Hi Adriano,
    I'm not sure about the brand name of the components but the electronics components price is much much cheaper than United states. I guess you may need to Google to find out the company that sell the components you want. One word of caution, don't send your money there and expect they will ship the parts to you. If you are ordering a big quantity, i suggest that you go there and see they pack the components and you sen it back using your own courier service. I have heard many stories about people sending big money and did not get their goods.

    Have a good day!
