TSIM SHA TSUI

When buying electronics goods in Tsim Sha Tsui, some tricks have to be avoided as prices are often very attractive and much cheaper than standard shops. Tourists shall be sure to pay only when the goods have been checked. Some tourists have paid why waiting their goods coming from the warehouse. As the goods are said to be of stock and any refund claimed to be impossible, a similar product is proposed but with a less advantageous deal. Some products are also sold without and with a local warranty and not an international warranty.
