Shenzhen Mangrove Nature Reserve, Shenzhen

4.2
Take a relaxing stroll among magrove trees, observing rare birds along Szenzhen Bay’s coastline at Shenzhen Mangrove Nature Reserve, the smallest state-level nature reserve and the only one in China located within an urban zone. With over 100,000 migratory birds of 189 varieties, the area serves as a stopover or winter home to white herons, gulls, egrets, and stilts. Mangroves, lychee and coconut trees, and more than 50 other species of plants provide the birds shelter. You can enjoy views of the ocean with the backdrop of the city skyline, or have a picnic as you relax in the reserve. Take buses J1 or 382 to Hongshulin.

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.
