Shenzhen

THE LOWDOWN IN SHENZHEN

While some people might see Shenzhen as just a cheap entry to Hong Kong the city itself actually holds a lot more intrigue and mystery than you might first think. Shenzhen is a baby in the scale of Chinese history having only recently expanded in the 1970’s due to becoming China’s first Special Economic Zone. The once small fishing town is now a modern city alive with nightlife, shopping, architecture and golfing retreats. You’ll find the population of 14 million people is a unique blend of people from all 22 Chinese provinces as well as a large foreign expat crowd creating a great mix of culture. The great sub-tropical weather makes outdoor activities available year round. Whether it’s running with the Shekou Hash House Harriers or playing a little Gaelic football, you’ll find a sport just for you. An interesting tidbit is that Shenzhen is sister cities with other great cities around the world such as: Houston, Texas U.S.A., Kingston, Jamaica, Rotherham, U.K and Brisbane, Australia.
