Shenzhen Dongmen Old Street
Dongmen is a shopping area and subdistrict in Luohu District, Shenzhen, the center of which is Dongmen Pedestrian Street. The subdistrict encompasses all connecting commercial streets. These streets were closed off to vehicle traffic and 100-percent dedicated to foot traffic in 1999.
As one of the older parts of Shenzhen, the Dongmen area was established about 300 years ago as the center of Shum Chun Hui, a town that would later develop into the city. This leads it to be alternatively known as "Laojie" (literally "old street").

Located in Shenzhen, Huaqiangbei was originally built to be an industrial center for wholesale consumer electronics, computers, electronic appliances and communications products. It has since transformed into a huge commercial center, the transition starting in 1998. Electronic and digital products are the backbone of Huaqiangbei, with women’s clothing being equally as hot-selling (but less talked-about) there. In 2008, Huaqiangbei was granted the title "China’s No. 1 Electronics Street." About one thousand wholesalers and retailers selling electronics have put up shop in this one place, much more than any other electronics marketplace in Chin, including Zhongguancun in Beijing.
