Q: Where can I find magazines for expats in Shenzhen?

For all of you living in Shenzhen...

 

I live in Hangzhou and I cannot go to Shenzhen myself, however my company will be welcoming two British girls going to the Shenzhen area for a cultural exchange program. They will be coming to Hangzhou for an orientation and training camp and we usually include such kind of magazines in the Welcome Package we give them.

 

So now I am sending one of our Chinese colleagues to pick up a couple of copies for me. Unsurprisingly, when I asked her for this favor she replied: "Sorry, I don't know where to find them". 

I am talking about publications such as "That's PRD" or even others I may not know about. Where can she pick them up? Here in Hangzhou it is usually at bars, cafes, hotels that expats usually go to. 

 

Any suggestions? I need the exact names of places if possible...

 

Thank you so much for your help!

I can't say for Shenzhen whether or not they have City Weekend or Time Out (maybe for Guangzhou?) but you can always have someone check any expat bar/pub/restaurant for you.

I didn't pay attention to such magazines, but the most likely place to find it would be the expat bars/restaurants in Shekou, Seaworld (metro stop has the same name) or in Futian, Coco Park (metro stop is called Shopping Park).

I'm sure in Shenzhen you can find everything required just across the border.

You can buy magazines in Bookcity. Its located in Futian right next to the Shenzhen library and musical hall. But its a bit expensive.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
