Shekou, Shenzhen

3.5
#2 of 16 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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Shekou and many more Shenzhen attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Shenzhen vacation planner.

Red light on, will come rushing. If you're in the environment to get intact. 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. Faucet side and here 20 minutes each-I'd keep watching the allowances for about 30 minutes. After any LLC Narita like Super boloterminal treatment and is not. It is normal. Pirate base in Jackie Chan's faucet is a construction site just now; It's not fooled by photos from the past. Dubious there's contrary place surrounded by walls of iron construction. Although next year as Royal Caribbean, Silversea, Costa (all Chinese owner from) comes, not likely to be known.

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.
