Theme Parks · Landmarks · Shopping Malls
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 trip itinerary planner.
