The famous Huaqiao electronics market is located just a few minutes walk from Zhaofeng Road metro station (line 11). You don’t even have to be a tech nerd to appreciate the hundreds of stalls selling everything from phones, laptops, cameras and all the individual bits and pieces required to build it all yourself.

Flashing neon signs and the typical chatter of bartering customers give the market a lively atmosphere. It’s a fun place to visit even if you’re just passing through, but it’s a great place to buy a phone or get your laptop fixed. Prices are low and the service is great. Unfortunately, no one at the market specializes in cleaning Mongolian sand out of my DSLR Nikon camera.

You can get to the electronics market by taking a bus: 100, 101 and 228 all go from the emart stop to the Zhaofeng transportation hub. You can also just take the metro a few stops. From there, you need to walk past KFC about two blocks until you get to a large building filled with all the electronic goodies that you can possibly imagine.
