  • Located in the coast of Shenzhen is quite beautiful. Entrance fee is required to get to the beach. Place some rocks, so sandals are required. Not suitable for walking in bare feet. I think the place to frolic in still, beautiful nature and perfect. Place is kinda harsh come by public transport from the city of Shenzhen, is a place not by taxi two hours away.

  • After the summer, leave the Office air conditioning and I like the frog in the boiling water, hot and anxious, like that kind of sense of restlessness was swept away. A friend of mine wanted to go snorkeling, so I'm ready, and together they embark on a wonderful journey exploring the underwater world.

  • The best hiking route I have ever taken in China. If possible, make sure you pick a cloudy day so you won't get burned that much. Take the boat!  more »

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.
