    Default Photography and life in Shanghai

    Hi all,

    I'll be moving to Shanghai on a 2 year work assignment and was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on where I could find shops that do camera equipment (a la AP, Cathay or CWS) and film processing (like Ruby in SG)?

    Also appreciate any advice on nice places to go and any other aspect of living in Shanghai.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Hello Elvin

    you can try the rail way statation in shanghai. there is a build with a whole level of stuffs you can buy ... you have to ask clearly if you want receipts .. if you dont need .. you can get it tax free. if you are buying a camera body there... ask for a photocopy of the receipt as a proof of purchase.. and it is also a valid warrenty in china.

    if you are looking for studio equipment i know Jin Bei have their head office in sh but i happen to misplace the address.

    there is another place in Metro City... at Xu Jia HUi. its like Funan/simlim equvalent of singapore. you can get all your gadgetys there....

    you can also check out club bonbon at huai hai road and bao qing road.... a really superb club by godskitchen ... house ... trance.... thru is hiphop. chicks are ****ing awesom...

    there is babarossa at Ren Min PArk.... good chill out joint...with shisha... and lounges good for beer and chill.

    there is attica at bund and club 97 at fuxing park...

    hahah i only know clubs.... :P i will be heading up to sh sometime 12 may... i stay ard Xin Tian Di if you have any idea... where that is

    ooh try shintori .. a really neat restaurent oops cant remmber the addy ... ask ard ... every one knows "ying 7 ren jian" direct translaton is "silver 7 human world"" hahahahah :P


    ermm there is super supper at Xing Wang tea house 24 hours with home delivery.... egg tarts and the grill brinjal is my recommendation. at chang le road and rui jin road


    thats all i can think of now ...

    hahah pm me if you are lost or get mobbed by chicks...
