Where to Buy LED Lights: The Only Guide You Need

For no reason I get a little bit attached to the city of Zhongshan: nice people, unpolluted sky, which is rarely seen in large Chinese cities like Guangzhou. However, it might get your nerves on if you are foreigner without any English-speaking Chinese friend by the side coz most of people even the sales representative in the stores don’t speak English or with very limited English skills. Immersing into a different culture can be exhausting and frustrating sometimes, the same with diving into the world of LED lights.

  8. Hello Sally and great site you have here! I would like to know if there are Wifi in public places? Can I rent a reliable portable wifi in Guangzhou and how much would it be? I most likely will use it for Wechat, Whatsapp and google maps and translation. Thank you for the help. – John

    • Hi John, thanks for support. I have no idea about portable WiFi but usually most airports offer rental service. If you stay mostly in the city center of Guangzhou, you can find free wifi very easily in shopping malls, cafes, restaurants, but the connection is just average, only good for wechat. I’m afraid you might have problem with what’s app connection since partly were blocked. Google products are all blocked in China but you can use vpn to access them. I think it is better you try for the first one or two days and see whether the free public wifi is ok or not. If it is too slow for you, you can just go to any China Mobile shops or China Telecom Shops in town and buy a sim card for tourist, do bring your passport with you as it is necessary for buying sim card in China. Good luck.

Another choice is hiring a local buying agent to source suppliers, follow the orders and arrange shipping. Good luck.
