Shenzhen

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Guangdong  /  Shenzhen
(3.6/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: theme parks, shopping, sightseeing
A fairly humble collection of farming and fishing villages and towns until 1979, you wouldn't guess as much when taking a tour of Shenzhen. The city of 10 million boomed after becoming China's first Special Economic Zone (SEZ), and a laboratory for trying out market reforms in close proximity to UK-led Hong Kong. The downtown areas abound with forests of skyscrapers, towering over public parks, plazas, and restaurants, while a number of large theme parks make the city particularly popular with families. Make your own Shenzhen vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our China itinerary builder.

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.
