Free Shenzhen Map to Shop for Electronics in Huaqiangbei

September 9th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Huaqiangbei is the place in Shenzhen, China, to shop for electronics components and devices. There are several multi-story buildings with lots of different electronics fares, and if you look for some specific components it’s more than likely to be found there.  However it may take some time to find what you need there, but it may just have become a little easier, as Seeed Studio has published a map that you can buy for $5, or simply download for free (PDF).


The map has 2 main sections:

  • Some general information about Shenzhen such as transportation (border crossing, station), leisure, main locations of factories, and a bit more.
  • Huaqiangbei map with short descriptions of what you can buy in the different buildings, as well as places to eat, and stay.

Seeed Studio will also setup a wiki, so that makers can add interesting places they went shopping in Shenzhen.

    I live in Hua Qiang Bei, it’s a total crazy place. This map is a very good help, but nothing like the experience.

    I’m going to download

    It looks like the price (& half the description) is for a Miracast dongle, so perhaps a mistake. Maybe worth contacting seller?
