Had an awesome time, spent 10 days here shopping at Huaqiang Bei electronics market, and the markets of Dongmen. Come ready to haggle, and at least counteroffer 80% less as a starting price! Have fun

China's one of the most advanced cities. Public bus and metro have both English and Chinese instruction. So no problem for foreigners. Best city for shopping.
