Zhongguancun

Zhongguancun

The Zhongguancun area is sometimes called China's Silicon Valley, because of its many universities and IT-based companies. It also has a score of really big markets, selling anything you can imagine in computers and electronics, and they are all within walking distance from each other.

One market that stands out in the crowd is Zhonghai electronic market, selling used computer stuff and notebooks, which could be convenient if you prefer low prices rather than getting the latest model.

The markets in this area really have anything you could possibly need for you computer. What is more, many of the markets offer cheap computer repair service.

Salespeople and atmosphere

Few of the salespeople speak English. If you find someone who does, however, they are often able to help you even if their store doesn't have what you are looking for. If you are planning to buy something a little more expensive, and don't speak mandarin, it can be wise to bring someone who does. Prices are negotiable.

How do the prices on Apple ipad and laptops compare in Beijing to the rest of the worl d markets?

For nightlife, Beijing is deeffrint from Shanghai. Shanghai is all about cool people , while Beijing is all about real people. yes, I'm biased, as I lived in Beijing for four years, but I've also spent lots of time in Shanghai. Beijing has a live music scene that Shanghai doesn't and this includes rock. Beijing is also the traditional cultural center, so you can go see a real Peking Opera, a play, a Chinese classical concert. And yes, Beijing has clubs (although a bit cheesier than those in Shanghai). Beijing is cheaper than Shanghai overall for shopping, but requires more bargaining. Good deals are found at the Hongqiao Market. Must learn how to bargain! Don't buy anything until you have visited many stands. You can get the prices down while you look around, and demonstrate that you know the real price. I disagree with what the other person said. Winter time is as good a time as any, and why not super cheap Yanjing Beer the local favorite.

Yes, you can most certainly find LED displays for all purposes at Zhonggunancun. If you have a cretin type of display that you are interested in the we suggest you to search for it at www.zol.com.cn and find a store at the list to the right when you have found your product. Or just go to Zhongguancun and look around. One store that sells professional LED display for outdoor use at Zhongguancun have this address: 北京市海淀区中关村科贸电子城4B093

Hi!
I need to buy a 2 Tera Internal Hard Disk. I've been in Beijing many times but to be honest I don't trust Chinese people.
Do you think I should buy from them or wait till I go to Low Yat Plaza in Malaysia?
If so, should I go to Zhongguancun or Buynow?
Best Regards,
Behnam

Shopping in Beijing answered...

Hi!
We didn't see this post, sorry. A very late reply that might help someone else.
Buying things in China can be difficult and being tricked is not uncommon, especially as a tourist. We have an article related to buying electronics in Beijing that might help you out. Zhongguancun is definitely a better choice if you want a greater variety of things.

Adrian answered...

Hi! Yes you can surely find it at Zhong guan cun. Like the HP Slate, MSI Winpad P100 or the chinese Hanvon TouchPad B10 are all running on Windows 7. This place have almost everything, but be sure to have enough time to look around since it's a huge place.

My dad is visiting Beijing from 06-12 June 2010, i have asked him to bring a new Sony PSP 3000 series for me...pls advice is it safe to buy from Beijing are there any chances of fake.....also pls advice what is current price of Sony PSP 3000 series in Beijing. Waiting for the reply

David answered...

Hi Rohit, i'm sorry to say it but yes, chances for fakes are high in Beijing. So your father can either try to get a really cheap fake that probably works good for some time or be sure to get a real one by looking for retailers in Beijing at sony's website.

I bought a wireless router for 115 CNY and English-Chinese electronic dictionary (pricy but 15% cheaper than Amazon)... both genuine & good quality. Did not bargain much. I'm satisfied but the charger for my dictionary was missing. Will return soon with the receipt... make sure to check your goods!
