Fact or Fantasy :The truth about the Chinese grey markets

"The idea of taking some hard-earned western monies on a quick trip to China has become rather popular in recent years. And why not? All electrical devices seem to go through China at some point, and we’ve all had the daydream fantasies of taking a couple of hundred dollars across the ocean, to be met with such a veritable smorgasbord of shady underground markets and smoke-filled Asian bazaars that we’d be forgiven for thinking we’d just dropped ourselves into a particularly-nerdy version of Blade Runner. But the truth can’t be anything like the fantasy, can it?" (Culture, Final Fantasy XIII, Tech)
