After several years of construction the Huaqiangbei (“Huaqiang North”) recently re-opened, with a sprawling pedestrian thoroughfare with monumental staircases, towering architecture, and literally hundreds of stores! Our friend Naomi ‘SexyCyborg’ Wu held up a 360 camera for a walking tour through the street; the video is non-gimbaled but it’s a fantastic look at the ‘Silicon Valley of Hardware’ where very likely every component on the planet can be acquired and haggled for.
Aside: I love the ‘tree support’ structures in the newly-opened plaza. I assume that’s bamboo, and love seeing how localities around the world resolve problems that are specific to their place and time.
