    Seasons Botanic gardens have different scenery, very worth a visit! Especially in spring and autumn seasons, a variety of seasonal flowers, very nice! Cherry gully behind the past few years has done a lot of renovation is well worth a visit!

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.
