Electronics?

by CaDeMi

Are there any convenient places in Beijing to buy cheap electronics? I am looking for a notebook, if possible, with some Englisdh softwear on it. Does anyone know a good place?

Re: Electronics?

by ellyse

Zhongguancun seems to be the best place.
However, Beijing and mainland China is usually not a recommendable place to get electronics at, for a number of reasons.

Re: Electronics?

by enzhu

I don't recommend you buy electronics from China either except those disposable gadgets such as USB drive, USB hub, card reader, notebook locker etc.

Re: Electronics?

by chinaguy

i heard from chinese media, this November 2008 the American electronics retail chain Best Buy (BBY) will open a new store on the B2 floor of Beijing's SciTech shopping center.

Re: Electronics?

by CaDeMi

Thank you all for the advise!
Wow, I was not really aware that buying electronics here in China is not such a good idea. I may leave it for my next trip to Japan then...

Re: Electronics?

by Homanded

Personally, I bought a charger for my Nikkon camera as well as a couple of other minor gadgets and I've had good luck.
Having said that; be aware that the warranty on bigger electronics *may* not cover your country of origin.
You do not say where you're from but, if what you purchase breaks down a couple of months later, how would you go about cashing in on the warranty or, returning the item?
That is why it may not be a good idea.

Putonghua - Mandarin

by SLLiew

Putonghua = "Common language" or Mandarin is the official language of China of over a billion people. It is actually a dialect originally spoken around Beijing.

All over China, you will find many dialects spoken like Shanghainese, Hainanese and Cantonese. But most people will be able to communicate with outsiders using Mandarin. Also all these dialects are written using the same standard Chinese script.

Mandarin is easy to learn but difficult to write. There are four different tones to each sound but used incorrectly often a foreigner sounds funny or comical.

Of course, most locals will be able to guess "Ni hao" in all the wrong tones but be too polite to try to correct your tones.

Also you may want to know that in China, simplified Chinese characters are used while in Taiwan the traditional Chinese characters are maintained.

It is not impossible to learn enough Mandarin to read the signs and speak a few simple phrases. So have fun learning Chinese.

Be a Hero and Climb The Wall!

by sheryl_tan

There is a Chinese saying '' Bu Dao Chang Cheng Fei Hao Han'' implying that one is not a hero unless he has climbed the Great Wall.

My 80 year-old grandfather was proud of his certificate that was 'awarded' to him for his achievement years back when he visited. But of course, he was at Badaling, where most of the tourists are. At Badaling, the walls are restored and definitely for the tourists.

We visited Si Ma Tai portion of the Great wall instead, where the walls are largely unrestored and very steep. It was not an easy climb, but the scenic was worth it. Sometimes, I just have to walk sideways as the steps as too narrow. Hmm... I sorry, maybe it's just that I have unlady-like size feet :P

It was definitely an experience.... And of course, I'll have more to share :)

Photography Equipment City

by stevemt about There are over 100 photography equipment shops

The complex is over 2 floors, and there are over 100 individual shops here.

Goods range from new camera's and equipment in general, to 2nd hand camera and lens shops, all manner or other photography equipment.

I was taken here by my guide for the day and he helped me locate what I wanted. This was a huge bonus as most store keepers have only rudimentary english skills.

I got the zoom lens I was after for 1/2 the price it was costing in Australia, so I was totally stoked. Less than you home country.

Trains to Shanghai

by ellyse

Here's a lowdown on the train choices for this route. Listed from the best quality train to the lousiest quality -- in terms of comfort.
1) Overnight D train (10 hours, 5 daily): 2nd-class sleeper 655 RMB, 1st-class sleeper 730 RMB
2) Daytime D train (10 hours, 1 daily): 2nd-class seat 452 RMB, 1st-class seat 542 RMB
3) Overnight T train (13.5 hours, 2 daily): hard seat 179 RMB, hard sleeper 306/317/327 RMB for upper/middle/lower bunk, soft sleeper 478/499 RMB for upper/lower bunk
4) Lousy slow train (22 hours, 1 daily): hard seat 88 RMB, hard sleeper 176/183/190 RMB, soft sleeper 290/304 RMB
I wouldn't suggest going by hard seat, it's really too traumatic (unless you're a masochist, perhaps) and not worth the savings. The daytime D train is too expensive and a waste of money for most of us. The hard sleepers for the T trains are almost impossible to get so don't count on them, but count your blessings if you do succeed in getting them! My best option would be sleeper on the overnight D trains.
