There are lots of choices for buying electronics in Beijing. Most locals would take Zhongguancun (Silicon Valley Beijing) as the first choice because of its wide selections and much lower price of electronic products. But as to foreign traveler, to buy electronics from these markets in Zhong Guan Cun can’t be easy because of the language barriers and the business tricks they will encounter. Large electronics supermarkets and shopping malls which also sell electronics can be a nice choice for Beijing travelers. Though their price would be a bit higher than that of Zhongguancun, they are reliable and insure quality. Guomei and Suning are the two biggest and most popular shopping spots for electronics and electric home appliances.
