  • To stop by metro 3 Fen (blue line, by Yi Tian to Shuang Long), with costs from Yi Tian which do not exceed 2 euros, you come out on the sidewalk to the East and descends southwards (right). The second (or, if you prefer, the third) left there through the narrow streets between the buildings and you will come across a local market (fruit, fish, ...) and at the end of the street of stairs going down into the neighborhood where the painters on the street oil paint copies of famous paintings, Chinese landscapes or portraits. You can order the paintings, but it takes time, sometimes even a week.

Where to stay in Shenzhen

With the city quickly developing into a modern metropolis, Shenzhen accommodations have done well to keep up with the pace of change in the downtown area. The area south of Tanglangshan Country Park right down to Hong Kong's border offers an area rich in places to stay. Whether you're looking for some high-rise luxury, or a side-street dormitory, this central area has a large degree of variety. Located close to the main sightseeing highlights, and well served by public transport, the area stretches out to the east and to the west, with accommodations becoming less regular the further you go.
