    errr......not really trust that's why i post here. But in the first page of the lonely planet travel guide book, they have a small paragraph saying that lonely planet authors personally tried out the services, food, accommodation and took no cash or other forms of gifts to get the co. to be recommended in the guide book. The authors provide unbias views... that's what is written in the first page.

    hi damienster,

    Time to KTV and 沐足 liao!!!!!!If you are more adventurous, try the Sauna (桑拿). There you will find terms like 波推, 半条龙, 一条龙. I've heard of a term called 烧冷五冲天 and the description is pretty interesting!

    I would advise against bringing out your DSLR until you are very familiar with the place. There are just too many people there, do take note of people around you, especially when you are at 老街 or 罗湖. There are those that hang around you touting their products stored in their warehouse, but there are others that just follows you around.

    华强北 good for getting electronics, computer stuff on the cheap!

    Once you are quite familiar with the place, you can try exploring 东莞, 长安, 后街 and 广州。

    Hrm, didn't really have much trouble with any pickpocketing or camera-grabbing incidents while I was there a few weeks back; but yes, was told to keep alert for such incidents, at the Lao Jie/Luo Hu area.

    Hua Qiang Lu is damn messy la, just a lot of buildings with a lot of electronics, from wires and LEDs to cameras/MP3 players etc.

    Shopping is probably the best at Lao Jie/Luo Hu.

    And I didn't find the girls there pretty lor. Hong Kong and Macau better la!

    lowu area totally sucked for me. better is the dongmen pedestrian street area. you've got retail outlets, smalltime boutiques, department stores, national chains and what have you.
    i heard it's dangerous too but seemed fine to me when i was there. no one attempted to take my cam. =)

    Louhu commercial city is for people who never being to Shenzhen and too scare to walk the real shenzhen.

    If you are in HK and just wanna get a quick taste of shenzhen, you can go to Louhu. Else, it's a "lucky Plaza" of Shenzhen to con stupid tourists.

    Yes, the steamboat buffet at dongmen is good and cheap. There are decent 沐足 that are dirt cheap.

    agreed! lowu (official translated spelling) is just to con HK tourists because of the slightly cheaper price. you havent seen shenzhen if you only went to lowu!

    Hi just to update you...

    my life in shenzhen is wonderful so far... at least before starting work officially. Really forget that i'm in shenzhen to work. I feel like i'm on a SZ backpacking trip.

    The interior is like a top-end backpacking style accomodation!!!! I expect something less. Eg, No fridge, no air-con, dusty rooms where no one occupies for a long time, no tv, personal cupboard, drawer..etc. However, ALL are provided!!!!!!!!

    However, the place where i'm staying, there's actually an auntie who comes to clean my place almost everyday. Toilet rolls will be replenished, toilet will be cleaned, clothes will be washed and ironed within 48hrs, office-like mineral water dispensing machine is provided, sofa, dining table and more. It's just like a typical 2-3rooms Singapore style HDB!! There's even a FREE phone line to call home. What's more can I ask for?? A swimming pool? =) Maybe I should request..and perhaps a BBQ pit =p

    Then not far away from the place I stay there's a clubhouse provided by the company. There's free internet connection, massage chairs, karaoke room, mini gym, suana, steam bath, cafe and those country-style shower area with clean towers.

    As for food.... it's diry cheap!! Imaging eating a Crystal Jade Restuarant in Singapore. A bowl of la mien cost S$8 exclude tax. Here is SZ, it cost only S$3 for a similiar CJR style!! A small pack of milk costS$0.50!! Tell me how to spend finish!!??

    Today is my 2nd day of my work. There's really lots of room for personal growth and development. My immediate sup kept telling me that no matter what I do or how I do it, as long as I produce results, that's it! No questions ask. I don't have to follow the rules or "just follow law" to get the job done. He told me that nobody will micro-manage me as long as produce results. My luch time is 1hr 50min!!!! It was a culture shock for me to see people take out their pillow and put their heads on the table not to rest but to SLEEP!! Even the boss does that!!

    Oh ya, I also read from the Internet that the transport in Sinagpore is rising again in October. So thinking of escaping to other foreign country like me?
