Buying consumer electronics in Shanghai
I am planning a trip to Shanghai and I am wondering whether it is a good idea to buy my SD chip cards for the digicam there or to bring them from here (Germany)?
What would the prices be for a 1 GB chip card (SD) in Shanghai and is the quality acceptable?
Also, are DV cams at a high definition (HD) a good deal (I would consider buying a chinese brand as long as the quality is acceptable, it is not counterfeit so I can get thru customs here and there is an English menu to opertate the thingy).
I would be grateful for your thoughts and hints on where to shop for these things.
RE: Buying consumer electronics in Shanghai
It's about 170 for Kingston or SanDisk.
I won't recommend you buy DV in China since you won't get warranty in German.
RE: RE: Buying consumer electronics in Shanghai
well i t wil depend on how much you wanna spend......as you alredy saw, there are different prices quoted to you already and in the shops it will be similar.... they are very CHEAP...less than 300rmb but some can be really bad copies and therefore stop working after a few weeks or even days... for cameras its the same thing, be smart and buy from a good shopping center. ITS ALL WORTH IT!
Travel Tips for Shanghai
Read the public newspaper with friends
In every town/city I went to there was a place like this where the newspaper could be read for free! If you wanted a copy to take home it cost money though. I loved watching people read the paper! Alot of times it would be something like this. The guy in front would say..."Hey! look at this" then about 5 or 6 of the his buddies would slam into his back so they could read it too and the poor guy in front would have his face pushed right up against the glass.
It seemed like a great social event.
Fast track to the airport
The fastest train in the whole world, Maglev is worth to try at least once in your life. It can go up to 430 km/hour and operated by magnetic field, so actually when the train runs, the track does not touch the train, it's quiet high tech I have to admit. But unfortunately, only works at certain times and you have to take a cab to an area near Pudong to go to the train station. From there, it only takes 5 minutes to the airport.
There is a website/ informal club Shanghaiexpat.com which includes, as the name implies, expats from many countries, as well as local folks who want to meet them. They have a variety of social events. Check their website. I have gone to a number of their events and found them enjoyable.
Vegas of China
As the sun drops and the Neon lights are kicked on, you can be mistaken if you thought you where on the Vegas strip. Instead, you're in the middle of the frenzy that is Nanjing Road. Everywhereyou look there are people moving in every direction. everywhere you move there seems to be people moving in the complete direction to you.
There are shops, resturant and did I mention Neon lights. All the colours of the rainbow beaming down on you will 240 Voltages consistancy. Working around there I felt like a (tourist) moth to a (neon) flame - anytime, I'd be burnt by some retail rip off.
No doubt, the road should be walked, experience and photograpged, but keep your wallet buttoned up.
Actually was born 300 miles west of Shanghai near the Yang Tse River in Kiang Si Province, a city called LoPing. We were deported through Hong Kong in 1951. I would like to visit my birth place some day.
