Shekou, Shenzhen

(3.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 真是太喜欢这里了!!!各种海鲜水产!蔬菜肉菜都很好很新鲜,还有几个摊位专卖湖北湖南菜的家乡的菜都能买到。另外还有很正宗的潮汕牛肉丸鱼丸店,现做现卖。烧腊的也有几家,很不错。(补充一下,这里大部分的商贩都支持微信支付了。
