Hua Qiang Bei – Market Discovery

Huaqiangbei with Dim Sum LabsVisit of …

Shenzhen’s world famous Hua Qiang Bei market is on our doorstep.

Ninety percent of the world’s electronics is made in the South China region and sold here. You need to see it to believe it.

Dim Sum Labs will be making its first 2018 group visit on Saturday 5 May, 2018.

Everyone is welcome to join us.

We will be shopping for components for our own personal projects and also some for the Dim Sum Labs community.

If you want to buy some components, you are welcome to join us. Please make sure that you have your detailed list with you.

This is not a formal/professional guided tour – just a group of friendly hackers exploring this technology wonderland together.

We will be visiting the markets, not the factories or any maker-spaces.
