A modern city

Shenzhen is a modern city,covered up with skylines,with busy streets and shopping malls.However,surprisingly,it is still possible to find some quite and beautiful places to stay if you don't mind to take a 20 min metro trip to the main shopping areas.There are limited activities to attract the tourists but 4 well setup theme parks and busy shopping centers.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:reasonable prices for shopping

  • In a nutshell:It is worth to stay for a few days in Shenzhen on your way to or from Hong Kong.
