1, When / What time is the electronic market open?

SEG electronics, Huaqiang electronics and some other major electronics markets are open from 9 A.M to 6 P.M. EVERYDAY, some shops or booths that facing the streets are open late in the evening. However it is better if you come to the markets after 9:30,  give them some time to clean up and display their products, and leave before 5:30 P.M. because when you leave after 6:00 P.M., there will be a lot of traffic problems, and it is also very hard to catch a taxi ( 1, too many people are trying to take a taxi at the market,  2, some taxi drivers need to go back “home” and another taxi driver will take the night shift.)

LED international Trade Center opens at 9:30A.M. so you can come at 10:00

SED Tablet Wholesales market open as late as 10:00A.M. I suggest that you come in the afternoon.
