Shenzhen – Hua Qiang Bei

leave a comment »

When visiting Shenzhen everybody tells you about the insanely explosive growth of the city which supposedly went from 30.000 people to 14 million in 30 years. Part of that growth is driven by the worlds technolust as Shenzhen is the main city in China’s ‘Special Economic Zone’ where a sizable part of the worlds electronics are manufactured. People from all over the world come to the enormous Hua Qiang Bei electronic district for good wholesale prices on components or complete products. This is by far the biggest market of its kind I have encountered and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is the worlds largest.
