Shekou, Shenzhen

3.5
#2 of 15 in Museums in Shenzhen
East meets West at Shekou, an area of the bay featuring accommodations, shops, and restaurants catering largely to a foreign population. Since the 1980s, when major foreign oil companies secured the rights to drill in the South China Sea, the area began to serve as a base for platform workers brought over to work here. Since then, expatriates have largely settled the area. The main draw here centers around a landlocked 168 m (551 ft) long vessel that has been converted into a hotel with Chinese and Western restaurants, as well as an English bar, dance club, swimming pool, children's recreation center, and folk culture exhibition center. Around the vessel, explore a refurbished and modern commercial center, adorned with palms and fountains, and encompassing a variety of establishments. Put Shekou into our Shenzhen online sightseeing planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Shenzhen.

  • Shekou was already the gathering of foreigners in Shenzhen. Today the nearest Sea world is a conglomeration of restaurants of all kinds with squares cute and famous Russian ship converted into a hotel-restaurant. The evening is a swarm of people including families with children. A nice atmosphere.

  • Having the 灣 bridge completed and Shenzhen China-zone, Shekou is much easier. There is a row of Shekou posted by our Bible often bought daily necessities, and when day games, not over now is not a good deal.

Cannot be issued LLC of course in the law will leave here from Hong Kong S.A.R. airport not about again looking for a counter, not issued. And he also, from of course, Commission staff is super busy.

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.
