Re: visa on arrival

by Farang27

find a travel agency in HK advertising china tours/visas (there are several in tsim sha tsui, for example). they should be able to get you a tourist visa by the next day. it costs about $150 US i can't rmemeber how much in $HK.

Yes next day visa is probably feasible. Things are expected to free up a little after the 17th. You still cant get visas at the border.

Travel Tips for Shenzhen

Lu Won Shopping Center

by meaganelizabeth about Six floors of shopping

Unbelievable. You can buy shoes, jewelery, clthing, souvenirs, fake bags, fake anything, golf clubs, dvds. Its like canal street or venice beach except with everything under the sun. I love it. Im not a logo gucci bag kind of girl, but the other merchandise is nice. Beware though, I did buy a Louis vuitton, and tried to ship it to my cousin. Right outside at the bottom of the escalator is a shipping place. They open your package and inspect it and if they see its a fake bag refuse to send it. But you just say SEND IT anyway, and they will. My cousin recieved the bag, and I didnt have to go through customs with it (Im neurotic, youd think I had drugs on me!) A lot of men buy golf clubs here becuase the factories are here, so they are the same. THIS IS THE SAME as buying a fake purse. THat is fine by me, but it is the same boys! If they give you a price, start at half of what they say. They are crazy with bargaining. I buy so much here. The shoes are great, some are more costly than others. You can buy shoes for 3$- very expensive. The 3 dollar shoes are what you will find in the states at mandees or g and g, for 25. The good shoes are what I find at the boutiques in soho for $400. I buy a suitcase of shoes and ship them home. I also buy wigs here and some pocketbooks, but the leather has to be good. Which it usually is not. I also buy a few dvds for the plane or the hotel room. For the men, there are also Ferarri stores, only containing ferarri! as much as you want!

Cheap flights to Shenzhen...


There are two major budget airlines flying to Shenzhen from overseas, and they are Tiger Airwyas from Singapore and Air Asia from Malaysia and Thailand. These provide budget travellers a good choice if you want to enter China or Hong Kong from South East Asia region. Tiger airways flies only to Singapore; while Air Asia flying more destination from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Kota Kinabaru.
Also, please note that there is NOTHING to see once you check-in, since the international terminal is VERY small in this airport. The good thing is you can "smuggle" a can of drink to airplane since there is NO further check in the waiting hall.

Business Center

by shivan

According to me the best thing to do is to climb (using elevators!) on top of the business center and to enjoy the city view from above. During clean air days and nights, sight includes even Hong Kong in the distance

Obviously I made it at night, the most foggy night in months, according to the guide.

This is what I saw...

Shopping it is!

by Emile72

We have spend 1 day in Shenzhen during our Asia March 2008 trip. As we had beaches, historical sights, etc. on our program in other countries, we decided to hit Shenzhen for shopping purposes only.

Shenzhen, it seems like there are endless shops. So, we really spend all day shopping (which was due to the fact our luggage was delayed for 4 days, so we just had to shop).

temple hopping

by zephyrgurl108

"tian hou temple, chiwan"

a temple for the chinese sea goddess tian hou (or tin hau in cantonese) is located in chiwan, near shekou's sea world plaza.
the place is huge, charges a minimal entrance fee, and features a bell and drum tower, a museum, and wishing tree.
james, aka
, took me here. it's the second folk/buddhist temple ive visited in shenzhen. the first one was hong fa.
to get here from shennan road, take bus no. 204 going to nantou. u get off at seaworld plaza, near subway, then take bus going to chiwan, tell the driver to tell u when it passes by the tian hou temple.

"tian hou's story (abridged)"

according to the temple guy, tian hou is a goddess said to protect the fishermen, thus temples in her honor are often found along coastlines.
her story is that, she was a real person, born a long long time ago, a devout buddhist, who possessed some power, rescuing fishermen and helping bring back ships safely to shore, stuff like that. Tian Hou means Queen of Heaven but she's also referred to as the Queen of the Sea, or sea goddess.

"adopt a tian hou"

if you visit temples, you would notice a room or an area with a cabinet full of statues. these are "orphaned" statues brought to the temple, either because the owner has died or moved and left them.
another interesting fact from james.

"the drum and the bell"

in buddhist temples, you would often find a drum and bell, tian hou temple has a tower for these two!
the drum is said to represent time while the bell signifies eternity.

"chen yang hao miao"

a temple for a hero of a long time ago and his attendant, is what the chen yang hao miao temple is all about.
the temple is small and dark, and has the statues of said heroes as well as guanyin, the sea goddess.
apparently, this is a very old temple, dating back to the ming dynasty.
so that's around when? dont ask me.
this temple is located in futian district, inside a village called xia sha. take the subway metro, get off at che gong miao and take a cab to this place

"ancestral hall"

near the chen hao temple is an ancestral hall - a place where families gather for ancestral worship and other activities. it is open for public, just go in and admire the architecture and other what have yous.

"buddhist park"

the surrounding area also features a park where statues of buddhist origins are scattered around.
the place is NICE!
pictured here is the buddha, lying down, apparently sleeping.
even buddhas need rest!

"mt. laughing buddha"

there's also a little hill with statues of kids climbing up to reach the laughing buddha. the laughing buddha is a symbol of goodluck, happiness and wealth.
somehow, the message here is that goodluck doesnt happen for no reason, you have to work for it..or wealth or happiness. it's a conscious effort, not chance.
that's just my opinion.
