Hong Kong doesn't have sales tax or VAT (value added tax) -- that makes a big difference on goods like electronics which are heavily taxed on the mainland

Technically, goods in Hong Kong marketplace have not legally entered "mainland" China, so they are not subject to import tax, which in some items could more than double its price.

I have not seen a "sales tax" or a "va;ue added tax" on any item I have purchased in China.

As a rule of thumb, a computer (laptop) made abrod in China will cost you from 5,000 to 6,000 yuan, in Hong Kong will cost (same one) from 3500 to 4,000 HK dollars ( maybe 3200 to 3700 yuan).

It's supposed to be the same for cameras. But the one I wanted was nowhere below 9500 HKD and I found it in GZ for 7500 RMB (including SD card).

And no, it's not a fake
