Soviet Anti-Nazi Propaganda Posters
Shen Zhen is probably the last place you expect to find antique Anti-Third Reich posters. But here it is, on in the vast shell of the aircraft carrier shell in Shen Zhen. The stark ink drawings caught my attention since its wit and simplicity spoke volumes.
Where: Minsk World, Dapeng Bay, Shatoujiao, Shenzhen, China.
Admission Fee: 120RMB
Lowu Bus terminal
There are many express direct bus connection between Shenzen (Lowu) to neighboring towns like Dongguan, Humen, Guangzhou or Zhuhai.
There is also intra-city buses and buses to local neighborhoods. Check with locals where to wait for the buses depending on your destinations.
For long distance buses to towns in Guangdong, you cannot book in advance. Just stand in queue. When the bus arrives and pay as you board or after you have seated. Those behind in the queue will then wait for the next bus.
Do not be surprised if sometimes, someone come on board the bus just before departure, then videotaped everyone. It is to deter bus robbery.
Anyway, do not carry a lot of valuable and cash. If you have, you should afford a taxi but better to ask a friend to pick you up.
Found it very easy to go around by buses. Have your destination written in Chinese charactors if you are do not speak Chines. Note that many long distance buses stop running earlier, 7-9 pm.
Lotus Hill Park
This 166-hectare public park, fully forested, is an ideal place for family fun in the heart of the city. The focal point of the park is a viewing square at the top of the Lotus Hill, which got its name from its shape (like a lotus). The square commands decent vistas of Shenzhen and highlights a statue of late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who inspired the creation of the city. Below the hill are a lawn for kite flying and a lake for fishing.
We had a walk on the park and took some pictures of it. It's a very cool and relaxing place to visit.

Shenzhen: A City Void of Depth & Compassion
Compared to its capitalistic neighbour of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is a very mediocre city. Though it is prosperous, it lacks culture, arts, civil pride & an identity. I often like to refer it as the Mainland's Buffalo (in USA), for they both have lots of cheap shopping, but other than that, they are hollow shells... However, Shenzhen does have three exciting theme parks in the region that could entertain you for days =D
"Shenzhen: Where art is not embraced"
Shenzhen is definitely a product of mass commericalization and voids of any florishing arts community. It is almost as bleak as when it was still a large swamp of paddy fields on the backdoors of Hong Kong. Art is always intermangled with the notion of making money...
