    Ya, Luo Hu Chen is famous for getting cheap stuff, mainly imitations. And remember to slash the price if not, u will kana slashed.

    There is a place call "Shi Jie Zhi Chuang" (Window of the Worlds) where it a centre that all the main cities are built in a miniture size if i am not wrong. And near by there is a theme park call "Huan Le Gu" where it quite popular for Shenzhen's tourism.

    So far these is what i knw, btw when u going to shenzhen? As i will be there next week. Currently i am in Guangzhou.

    Take the KCR Rail in Hong Kong (East Route or they call this the older route) to Lo Wu station and walk across the border (1 min walk) and there you are, in Lo Wu Shopping Centre. Take the MRT in ShenZhen and explore if you have time.

    Travel advise:

    1. Pickpockets and thieves. Never leave things unattended.
    2. Do not litter near the train station. This is one place where they have cops to fine you.
    3. Bargain 50% or more when you are there for clothes and stuff.
    4. Always check the price before agreeing to any service. Or you will find yourself paying dearly for it.
    5. Almost never buy electronic stuff over in ShenZhen. Test, and test and test if you have to. Storage cards are usually bogus.

    Yup, heard some friends told me not to buy any digital cam or memory card over there.
    digicam printed 5 megapixel actually is only 3 megapixel and same for memory card.

    So cannot judge the product by outlook and they are very cunning.
