Need advise for the best place to buy a Digital Camera

by joshes

Hi all,

I am about to go to Shanghai. This is my first time to visit Shanghai.
I intend to purchase a digital camera. A Leica or Panasonic Lumix (not chinese brands).
Can anybody recommend where to go to get the best price? Do you haggle over electronic prices as well (like in the street stalls)? Also, (I know this is rather stupid question) - do they sell fake branded Digital Camera such as Panasonic, Sony etc? How would I know if it is real? Anyone experiencing with the warranty?

I know in Jakarta, Indonesia, if you buy a mobile phone (exactly the same one) with or without warranty card would be a HUGE different in price.

Any information would be greatly appreciated and make my trip in Shanghai more enjoyable:).

Thank you all,

you may go to bainaohui at metro town,xujiahui for your digital camera. of course you can haggle over prices but not too much expected because lots of shops selling electronic products there.

China is not cheaper for cameras and electical things....because half the time the guarantee is only valid if you stay over hee...they will more often than not send the camera to Hong Kong to be repaird, so if you have gone all the way back home..HK could be a far place to send it!! Well i guess it could be cheaper a little, but with not being able to have an international guarantee and be able to send it to somewhere nearer home would be my concern!

You had better be an expert if you want to know if it is real. I am not an expert. I have spent time studying and visiting China. Protection of brands in China is, at best, very loose.

I agree with others that you buy a camera close to home, not on a vacation, not even if you go to Hong Kong. But if you lived in Shanghai, that is your home so then I would suggest the places mention by others plus CyberMart 282 Huai Hai Rd., 15 minutes walk south from People's Square. And, yes, haggle for a better price. Even if you only save 100 RMB, that will buy a few good dinners. I have haggled even in department stores and twice they gave me 15 percent off; a third time a department store gave me 10 percent off a pair of boots that were already marked down by 20 percent. Always ask.

Fakes are sold in China. I think my Adidas shoes were fake because they were very tired looking in less than a year of 2-3 day a week wearing. There are various ideas given to me by Chinese friends about about how to spot a fake but I can't say any of these ideas are any good. I bought a Nikon here in China and it has worked fine for three years except for the exact same flaw that is mentioned by everyone who ever bought one; poorly designed mode dial easily moves out of position. That's Nikon's fault.

Other non-Chinese brands of electronic goods (Sony, Panasonic) I have bought here have been reliable. Every Chinese brand I have bought (half a dozen) have been decidedly unreliable. Maybe the copies of good brands are such precise copies that they work as well as do the real ones! Haha!

Steffi suggested that I try the new MAGLEV train to the airport. It's a superfast, bullet train that goes as fast as 400 km an hour.
From her place in the city, I took the metro to Pudong and found my way to the train station, caught the next train to the airport, and was zoomed in a few minutes to the departure gate of the Pudong International Airport.
Since the MAGLEV only travels a distance of 7 km from the airport, this is not a good way to get to town especially if you have a lot of luggage to tow. Also, you'd end up having to take the metro which is not directly connected to the train station, the entrance is a few meters away though.
Let's hope the city fathers and mothers act on extending this new high speed train closer to the city, or connect it to the general transit infrastructure for access to Hangzhou or Suzhou.

Definetly an easy one to miss this, but well worth it once you find this little gem, vervia is a cool little lifestyle store in the Tai Kang Lu art area. Not art and "culture" as they call it on the horrible Fuzhou Lu but some really interesting designs made in the city, all of them original and with their own sense of moden city life. The area is nice and chilled out, interesting to walk around the old Shikumen and the shop itself is a visual treat. Along with all the cool gifts, decorations and other stuff on offer they also have home-made food and drink so the whole place makes a great afternoon out.

Yu Yuan Gardens

by lindyz

This was really our only bit of "Old Shanghai" that we saw while there, but we thoroughly loved what we saw. This place is quite close to the centre of Shanghai, downtown in the French Concession, but you wouldnt really know you were that close to utter chaos! It was peaceful and serene and amazing to walk through and look at. The 400 year old Gardens are a pure joy to visit and I would encourage all travellers to Shanghai to try and fit in half a day to make the trip.

It will be impossible for me to choose the 5 best pictures, because I took almost 100 pictures that day and they are all worthy of uploading!

Entry fee to Yu Yuan Gardens is only 40rmb = about $7AUD and there is no fee to enter the surrounding shops, including the zig zag bridge and Huxington Teahouse.

There is also fantastic shopping in and around Yu Yuan Gardens, with a good variety of goods, lots of typical Chinese souvenirs, and at very cheap prices too.

Shanghai - China's most cosmopolitan city

by sunnywong

Shanghai has another name "Hu", which came from "hudu".In ancient times, the fishermen is Shanghai invented a bamboo fishing device called "hu", ("Du" in Chinese means "creek".) This area was called "Hu Du" before it became known as Shanghai. The name "Shanghai" actually came into being during the Song Dynasty, when Shanghai was then becoming a new rising trading port. There were then in Shanghai 18 creeks, one of which was called Shanghai Creek, a section of the Huangpu River from the Bund to Shiliupu. On its western bank was a Shanghai Town; the name "Shanghai" was derived from this.

Prior to the outbreak of the Opium War in 1840, Shanghai had grown into a port with 500,000 inhabitants. After the Opium War, Shanghai was forced by European powers to open as a "treaty port." Foreign imperialism subsequently transformed Shanghai into one of the world's most glamorous and cosmopolitan cities by the 1920-30's.

Due to many years of foreign influence, Shanghai, the first Chinese city to open a disco for foreign visitors, is perhaps China's most cosmopolitan city. It also offers the tourist art and history museums tracing China's growth through the ages, and magnificent examples of Chinese architecture in its temples and buildings.
