Shenzhen City Tour Packages
|Tour Code & Duration
Shenzhen is located in the southern portion of
the Guangdong Province, on the eastern shore of the Pearl River
Delta. Neighboring the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong (located just
south of Shenzhen), Shenzhen's location gives it a geographical
advantage for economic development. In 1980, the first Special
Economic Zone of China was built in Shenzhen. From then on, Shenzhen
become a highlighted city of China, one known for its rapid economic growth.
More than twenty years ago, Shenzhen just was a small fishing
village called Baoan County. In 1979, it was renamed Shenzhen City.
When the Special Economic Zone was built, the city was divided into
six zones, four of which are located in the Special Economic Zone.
While Shenzhen City does not have as many historical attractions as
other famous cities in China, it has created a number of excellent
theme parks which entertain while teaching visitors about China and
the world. Splendid China and China Folk Culture Villages introduce
visitors to China's long history and varied cultures, while Window
of the World will take you to every corner of the world in one day.
Additionally, if you want to make your stay even more luxurious,
visit Happy Valley, the largest of Shenzhen City's theme parks,
situated on a picturesque coastline. Come enjoy the coastal view,
the theme parks, the city, and especially the people of Shenzhen
City. (Photo: Shenzhen Laojie

Each year, more and more people come to Shenzhen to try to find
employment. As a result, the city has become increasingly crowded.
The local government has recently made city-wide environmental
improvements in an effort to combat problems caused by
overpopulation. In recognition for these improvements, Shenzhen was
awarded the Garden City Award in 2000.
While Shenzhen has had to overcome a number of obstacles resulting
from this population swell, the city has also benefited from the
increased diversity. Workers come to Shenzhen from almost every part
of china, bringing with them their local traditions and cuisines.
Visitors are able to sample foods from each of China's famous eight
cuisines. Local dishes are also worth trying - Kejia is one of the
many dishes that should not be missed.
Thanks to its developed economy, it is easy to get to Shenzhen
quickly and comfortably by air, train or ship. What's more, Shenzhen
is the only city in China that provides three modes of
transportations for simultaneous comings and goings. Unfortunately
local transportation is not equally convenient; transportation in
the city is hit-or-miss due to the large population. However, the
number of transportation options available helps to counteract the
problems caused by crowding. In contrast, lodging in Shenzhen is
very easy to do, as there are a number of hotels which frequently
host businessmen and visitors from all over the world. Finally, when
you visit Shenzhen, make sure that you plan a day trip to Hong Kong,
where you can enjoy the sites and attractions of the famous
Shenzhen tourist attractions:
