Hi,

I am going out to the far east, China, Japan and maybe a few other places. I am doing some sightseeing with the Misses but am more interested in a little gadget shopping.
Has anyone got some recommendations to make?

Thanks,

Nick

Sometime since I was out there, but definitely Akihabara in Japan.

Big shops, small family stores sell everything and anything electronic.

Can be a little intimidating for the tourist (langage problem, everything printed in Japanese, obviously). Didn't buy anything there, but great for checking out the latest in techno stuff.

More tourist-friendly is Hong Kong (Nathan Road). At least I could bargain in Engrish :-rofl2. Got a nice Olympus camera and Seiko watch there for a great price, but probably cheaper now online, as my trips were before online shopping took off in a big way.
