The most modernized City
ShenZhen, rised from a small fish village beiside the sea, now become China's NO.1 most modernized city. As you walk on the street of Shenzhen, you would feel like you are traveling in a western city. This city is very young and very beautiful. A city is not only Moden with all these tall buliding. With high level of virescence, it is joyble to hanging around the city.
coco park is a mall
Malls are popping up like mushrooms around Shenzhen and one of the latest shopaholic havens is the Coco Park. Yep, it's a mall, not a park. Basically, the reasons why I love this mall consist of restaurants and cafes such as Papa John's Pizza, Focaccino, Starbucks, Illy's and Jusco, a grocery where you can get cheese, butter, and imported items (not the kind of grocery that have live animals inside ready for butchering).
I'm not crazy about its clothing stores though as they are unheard of (save the sporting clothes nike, adidas, fila, etc) and even expensive. Another nice thing is the HSBC ATM and bank they have there for international transactions. There's also a cinema here which is new and nice. food and grocery items. japanese brands are abundant in jusco. depends on you
An excellent service provides a good meal
The service is perfect, if you take a sip of your tea or beer, they fill it up again. Is your plate a bit full with bones or other things, they bring another one.
And the food is delicious.
The first time we (Europeans) entered we got giggles and smiles, later they were used to us, but ordering stays an special experience.
Pearl River Delta
The Pearl River runs from somewhere near Guangzhou city (capital of Guangdong province, China) all the way to the sea near to Hong Kong and Macau, creating a huge delta known as the Pearl River Delta. There are many towns and cities located here, some of them are Shenzhen, Fuyong, Dongguan, Zhuhai etc. There is a good ferry service network which connects Hong Kong and Macau to the various coastal towns of the Pearl River Delta.
"Busiest Port In China"
Shenzhen is a sub-provincial city of Guangdong Province in Southern China, located at the border with the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It is a center of foreign investment and since the late 1970s has been one of the fastest growing cities in the world. It is also the busiest port in China. In the past two decades, more than $30-billion has been invested by outsiders in Shenzhen building factories and forming joint ventures.
Shenzhen is a sub-tropical maritime region, with frequent typhoons in summer and early autumn. It can be reached by air, train, sea or road.
Shenzhen's major tourist attractions include the Chinese Folk Culture Villages, the Window of the World, Happy Valley, Splendid China and the Safari Park in Nanshan district, the Dameisha Promenade and Xiaomeisha Beach Resort in Yantian district, Zhongying Street, Xianhu Lake Botanical Garden, and the Minsk World. The city also offers free admission to a number of public parks including the Lianhuashan Park, Lizhi Park and Wutongshan Park. Shenzhen is famous for the great variety of cuisines that its numerous restaurants provide.
Most tourists, however, choose to stay in a largely expatriate community called Shekou. It is a residential area, with few commercial buildings. This place has many Western-based restaurants and a large plaza called Sea World. Sea World is host to many common American businesses, such as McDonalds and Starbucks. The main attraction of Sea World is a large French cruise liner that is cemented into the ground. It was taken from the French because it was believed to be a drug-smuggling vessel.
