Shenzhen Things to Do

  • BiJiaShan - BiJia 'Mountain'

    The name in Chinese implies a mountain, let's call it a mountain'ish' hill range. It's located in a huge park that caters the common entertainment facilities here in China - a lake with boats for physical exercise, playgrounds, small fishing area, small kiosks.... It even has a small museaum about urban development.The hills can be climbed from...

  • Happy Valley

    It's also at Nanshan Road, cross street from Window of the World and Chinese Culture Village.It's a Disney like place. It has been expanded many times. I didn't visit it recently since I don't like to play those risky games at all. I heard some of my friends they really like it and they think it's better than the Disney park in Hong Kong.

  • Window of the World

    It was also 120RMB for the ticket. It's not cheap but you can see different architectures in one day. There are Eiffel tower, Pyramid, White House, Niagara Fall and even a Manhattan Island! I think it's a good place to see and it may give you many surprise.There should also be a parade and firework show in the night, but I didn't see it for years...

    Marocco in China! unbelievable. The food is delicious and the owner spent much effort for the building and the decoration. When you walk in, you totally have the sense of the maroccan style and culture. Live music, a nice bar and a good DJ makes the evening perfect. It has become my favourite place at the weekend.

    Favorite Dish: roasted lamb chops. perfectly grilled and mouthwatering!

  • From Shekou/Nanshan to Hong Kong airport

    Since Shekou/Nanshan is away from Shenzhen, it's not easy to go to Hong Kong via Luohu Custome. There is a better way to go to Hong Kong airport from Shenzhou by ferry. Take ferry at Shekou, as soon as you arrive in Hong Kong port, you can check in with your airline so you don't have to take your baggage by yourself. Next, you will get 120 Hong...

He is not stupid but also doesn't understand Chinese. He figured...

  • Pick pockets

    Pickpockets can operate anytime in Shenzhen. When I traveled there I always used precautions such as a zippered or buttoned pocket or hidden pouch. Only one day and for only one hour did I not. It was a beautiful sunny week day around 11am. We were in a shopping area but not near the Hong Kong border crossing. There were few people walking the...
