Welcome to this Special Edition: Guide to Christmas Shopping in Shenzhen Videocast and Newsletter.
I know it’s really easy nowadays to order things online; however there is a growing pollution problem caused by the extra packaging used to fulfill the rapidly increasing online orders. Last year the waste from these courier services in China was estimated at 4 million tons to deliver 20 billion parcels… and that’s not including delivery truck emmissions. So today we would like to encourage you to buy locally. Not only will you help lower the impact, you’ll also be supporting local businesses in the place we live.
Watch the embedded video below or read the newsletter for details on six places you can go to do your Christmas Shopping right here in Shenzhen. We hope you like. Please Like, Comment, and Share it with others. We’d also love to hear your feedback.
Shang Le Street
Starting in Shekou, for small electronics and accessories, mostly knock-offs, but at a good price, take a stroll down Shang Le Street behind Hai Chang Street right here in Shekou. There are many little shops there where you can easily find plenty of gift ideas. The nearest Metro station is Shui Wan Exit C. When you get to the top of the stairs, turn right and cross the road. Then walk down the first road in front of you and you’ll run right into Shangle Street. Turn left and you’ll immediately start seeing a variety of shops.
