    Talking Products from CHINA?

    So my dad is taking a trip to china. I of course cannot let this opportunity escape. WHAT SHOULD I GET?

    I have decided to ask for a logitech webcam. I assume they should be a good lot cheaper there.

    I am also pondering an mp3-player. Especially Iriver or Ipod. I prefer the Iriver though. An HDD player would be my choice anyway.

    Who knows what brand and model is available and good to buy in china? Im looking for 10-20gb, 5 or 6-band and up EQ, and possibly FM radio.

    Thanks for your ideas! Appreciate it!

    Take a look at this site, in the Electronics section.

    www.yesasia.com

    they sell a lot of products that you'll find hard to find in this country, and if you take a look at the MP3 player section, there's so much to choose from.

    If they're hard to find, how will you find that they're hard to find until you've found them?

    Go across, buy the stuff, get the hotel to send all the items back freight, with all packages marked 'Personal items of no value', 'gifts valued £10' etc....

    Anything small that you're bringing back, just make sure you leave all the packaging behind, and as the BBC article says, don't have your receipts anywhere to hand (bury them deep in the suitcase). They can't prove you didn't buy it in England.

    If he buys an MP3 player - get him to just put it in his hand luggage, anyone asks - its his own player

    WebCams are only worth like £30.

    Cant you just put everything in the suitcase? whack it on the plane, and just pick it up with your other stuff, and waltz out of the airport and get home.
