Shenzhen Map for Makers (PDF).

Shenzhen is known as the Hollywood of Makers. And Huaqiangbei is a must-go place for visitors to Shenzhen. However, it’s not easy for visitors to find the related factories in Shenzhen. Huaqiangbei is like a huge maze to many. That’s why we make this Shenzhen Map for Makers, in the hope of helping you fully experience Shenzhen in a very short time. 
It is made up of 2 main parts. One is the general information about the maker-related factories in different areas in Shenzhen and the cities near Shenzhen. The other is map of Huaqiangbei, including the featured products in different buildings and the peripheral information such as traffic, diners, shopping centers, accommodations etc.

  1. Thanks for this, I am going back to Shenzhen for a second time just this week. Last time I made to the electronics mall but really didn’t get to see as much as I wanted.

  2. Americans and the French have to pay a US$140 fee for a visa to Shenzen and other parts of China, except Hong Kong and Macau. There are almost no maker-related shops in Hong Kong, other than two or three on Apliu Street and Golden Computer Aracade.

  3. Corection: The Futian Checkpoint (HK side: Lok Ma Chau MTR stop) is open only till 22:30

    Also missing: If you need cell phone parts,
    核电大厦 is worth a visit. It’s in the block left of #40

    There is another very similar place between #8 and #18 though were you can also get phone parts down to the LCD and individual ICs – plus some places to fix ’em right away.

  4. One error: Futian Check Point (Border to Hong Kong to Lok Ma Chau MTR) closes at 22:30 and not midnight. But nearby Huanggang (a 10 Minute walk eastwards) is open 24 hours.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
