Shenzhen Tips (9)

From Guangzhou to Xiao Mei Sha (Shenzhen)

Hi to all virtual turists!!! My tip is about the place worth visiting in Shenzhen.. It's one of its beaches - Xiao Mei Sha... (As it turned out there're 2 main beaches - Da Mei Sha and Xiao Mei Sha).... It was funny trip bcs nobody of my friends don't know how do to get there )))
From Guanzhou we went by train. First we bought tickets at Guangzhou East Railway Station (Tian He District, just near Citic Plaza skyscryper), the cost is ranging from 80-100RMB.
After arriving at Shenzhen railway station we went down to metro (Luo HU Station) and passed 2 stations.... Then one of my friends suggested to take a taxi to get to Xiao Me Sha.. but it was a real problem at 10 am... So we didn't waste time and go to nearest bus station... One of locals told us to catch a bus #103b or 103... And we were at the place in half an hour without any problems... We really enjoyed that beach... it was too crowded but we took it easy (by the way - this beach is not free for visiting, you should pay something about 50RMB)
So.. if anybody wants to visit this place, you don't regret... we had a fantastic time at the seaside..

Today the city is a major manufacturing center in China. One of Shenzhen’s high-rises lays claim to being the 8th tallest building in the world. The city has a population of more than 2 million and is located at the border to Hongkong.

Splendid China

Splendid China in Shenzen is a clone of Taiwan's 'Window on China'. It allows you to 'visit all of China in one day'. Beijing's Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Tibet's Potala Palace, the Shaolin Temple, the gardens of Suzhow, the rock formations of Guilin, the Tianshan Mountains of Xinjiang, the Stone Forest in Yunnan, Huangguoshu Falls, ... even some sights of Taiwan! Everything is reduced to one fifteenth of its real size. Another site has opened in Florida I believe.

Opening Times: 8:00 - 17:30

Bronze Zhong Bells

The Zhong bells were part of the Museums exhibit. These bells have a long history which dates back to the Shang dynasty (1766-1122BC). It was common then to see them in a set of 3 although earlier times produced pottery ones which were unearthed from the late stone age in the Shaanxi province.

Catch a ride in one of the...

Catch a ride in one of the mini buses, mostly non-airconditioned, which ply the city. Good opportunity to observe people in their daily commute and observe the fast changing skyline of Shenzhen as evident in the abundance of on-going road and buliding constructions. Note that Road signs going to tourist spots and within centre have English translations but this city is quite big that chances are the mini bus would pass thru other areas of the city without any English signs in sight! This is an exciting way to be lost as we experienced. A bit scary but Shenzhen folks are friendlier compared to their HK counterparts, it was heart-warming to see them try their best to understand and help us inspite of the language barrier. Inset, view of skyline while on a minibus although I have no idea what part of the city this is at.

It is very funny that we saw this in the China Folk Culture Park. It is a custom from Tibet. People put this wooden 'male organ' outside their house so that they could get more kids. :-)
