Sea World, Shenzhen

4.2
#1 of 14 in Fun & Games in Guangdong
Take a stroll through Shenzhen’s Sea World, a popular hangout spot centered around a large ship. Don’t expect to see a dolphin show here; even though the the attraction shares its name with the US-based theme park, it is actually a scenic waterfront promenade and plaza, lined with an array of bars and restaurants. Admire the square’s centerpiece, the “Minghua,” a ship built in France in the 1960s and docked here in Shenzhen. Choose from a variety of international cuisines to dine on, enjoy a walk by the sea, or head to one of the lively bars that surround the area. For Sea World and beyond, use our Shenzhen road trip site to get the most from your Shenzhen vacation.

    As a man of 80, here are the memories of his childhood, the ship was surrounded by the sea, is now completely landlocked, but more and more beautiful, night lighting at night is beautiful, clear waters is excellent!

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.
