Last time when I go Shenzhen, there are a lot of children beggar which will keep begging in front of you with a rotten rose... some children even just drag ur clothes... please do not give any money to them, coz after u give 1, all the friends will appear also... becareful of pick pocket also, they are very expert... (this experience is a few years back, dunno whether they have improve or nt, please correct me if I wrong)
yes, one thing when u go to china,
never buy anything from those kaki 5 peoples.
all con one.
especially jades, pearls.
just ignore them.
if anyone ask u for donation.
dont entertain them anything.
which is like NEVER
and keep ur wallets or valueble goods properly as well ya.
i heard that alot pick pockets there.
as for shopping,
u can bargain like half of their price there.
half or even more.
i mean, not in shopping malls la,
i dont remember where isit. but something like petaling street.
if they dont bargain, den just leave.
unless u really want that item alot.
shenzhen is not really a very developed place like beijing or anything.
people maybe rude there.
especially in crowds, u really gotta act like "tai koh" if not they'll keep cutting ur que like nobody's business.
really have to be firece to them.
i hope this helps,
because me myself experience all these before.
and i never liked shenzhen.
if u going to shenzhen throught zhu hai,
let me know, i'll tell u more experice
