Dear friends,

2. Location of big book shops and how to go there?
3. Location of cheap post office where I can send my books CDs in parcel back to my country

4. Can I visit Shenzhen in one day? ( book shop plus a few interesting places)
Or do Ineed to stay a night there?

Thank you

You will need a visa for China (Shenzhen). There has been a lot of trouble recently with visa, and for a while there was difficulty in getting any. But I think the situation may have eased now. There were visa agents in HK who offered same day or next day service. Try

Posting things from China is very difficult and time-consuming. It's easier from HK. There is a large post office near the ferry piers in Central.

shenzhen is big, but you should be able to see the sights in one day. hong kong is a better place to spend the night IMO although shenzhen is cheaper.

It is very hard to send CDs or DVDs out of China through the post. I have tried and havent succeeded and I know of a guy in Zhuhai who has trouble sending his software updates out. This is one of the anti-piracy measures by the goovernment I would think. If you have someone who knows their way around then one day would suffice but accomodation here is so much cheaper than Hong Kong I would stay an night. As I only by books in English I go to hong Kong for them so I cant recommend a bookshop.

There are two large book stores in the Shenzhen area, one in Shenzhen city and one in Shekou (Nanshan). As for Post Office rates are all the same as it is a government department.

Travel Tips for Shenzhen

Cheap cellphones

by arklandtravel about third lrt station from loh wu station

From the Loh Wu border take the LRT,get off the third station. You'll find a whole street full of shops selling cheap cellphones, various brands. But be sure to bargain as they can rip you off too. Cell Phones About HK$200 for a Late model Nokia

With the train from Hong Kong to Shenzhen

by Alain_Smeets

Take the KCR towards Lo Wu, this is the mainland boundary, it’s at the border between China and Hong Kong. There is a train almost every 10 minutes, so you don’t have to wait so long as for the ferry.

Lo Wu is the end station of the line and also the place where most people will leave, especially on a Monday evening when all the Hong Kong people are going back to Shenzhen to their work.

You don’t have to walk towards customs, just go with the flow and feel as one big happy family with the hundreds and hundreds of other travellers who all want to go to China. It can take a bit longer to clear the immigrations, but it’s a great experience. Once at the other side, you will cross the border river and then you have to go through immigrations at the Chinese side.

A ticket will cost you between 20 and 33 HK$, depending of your starting point.


Minsk World

by matlocksson

A real Russian aircraft carrier that was built in the 1970's. After the end of the cold war, a Chinese company bought it and turned it into an attraction! On deck you can see MIG fighters and anti-aircraft missles. Inside the ship, there is a museum with Russian space artifacts. Those include sattelites, space suits and a replica of the stuffed body of Strelka, a dog the soviets sent into space. Below, in the hanger, men in soviet naval uniforms perform Russian dance.

Gate to Hong Kong

by asiaminor

"A Border City"

Shenzhen is at the Hong Kong border.It is the place that you can meet many people traveling to/from Hong Kong as well as it is popular the ones stay there for a business trip or just for shopping as it is a popular shopping city.Many travelers who visit Hong Kong are taking a day or 2 days trip to Shenzhen taste a little bit of China.

"A modern city"

Shenzhen is a modern city,covered up with skylines,with busy streets and shopping malls.However,surprisingly,it is still possible to find some quite and beautiful places to stay if you don't mind to take a 20 min metro trip to the main shopping areas.There are limited activities to attract the tourists but 4 well setup theme parks and busy shopping centers.

hong fa temple

by zephyrgurl108

"getting there"

take the mini bus 468 from hua qiang bei area. it will stop at the gates of the Fairy Lake Botanical Garden.
pay entrance fee (about 20 RMB, if i remember right) and hop on to bus going to the hong fa temple. fare fee is about 2rmb.

"the screen wall"

the main entrance to the temple is blocked by a screen wall, which according to THE temple guy, is related to feng shui.

"temple security"

in every temple, there are guards at the left and right side of the door. representing yin and yang. one will be open mouthed and other with closed mouth but both looking fierce.

"halls of buddhist figures"

there are many halls in the hong fa temple where buddhist figures are housed and worshipped by followers.
of course, the biggest hall is of the Buddha.

"cool guanyin"

of the many representation of Guan Yin, this is my fave - the thousand armed one.
What makes this hall more interesting is that there's a whole block of cement wall with carved figures at the back. Most of which is hidden unless you go right up front and peep.

"fairy lake"

rooftops of the halls from hong fa with a view of the fairy lake (i guess).

"up up and away"

the hong fa temple is laid out with many stairs. it's not a flat complex that's for sure.

"buy your souvenirs"

at the entrance is a store where you can buy souvenirs - from incense to buddha necklaces. you can even buy a monk's robe here even if you're not a one.
