The Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen

Hello! This book is designed to help non-Mandarin speakers navigate the sprawling electronics markets of Shenzhen.The markets are locally referred to as the Hua Qiang Bei (HQB) markets, after the road that runs through the heart of the market.
The concept behind this book is to provide a “point-totranslate” interaction that is structured according to a typical transaction in the market:
1. Specifying components
2. Specifying quantity and packaging
3. Payment and delivery
4. Remembering the vendor’s location
The book also includes sections on what to expect, basic survival, and getting around. It does not cover topics such as eating, drinking, local attractions, places to stay, or making friends with the locals, as most basic travel guides for the area already provide adequate coverage of these topics.”
