    Traveling in Shenzhen:

    Shenzhen is a modern, financial and commercial metropolis in China, located in the southern portion of the Guangdong Province and lies adjacent to Hong Kong. Shenzhen's prime location has given it a geographical advantage for economic development. In 1980, Shenzhen was designated the first Special Economic Zone (SEZs) of China. Since then, the city has rapidly developed and expanded and today is a renowned highlight of China. This bustling city is home to ~20 million people, and is famous for its rapid economic growth.

    The beautiful scenery and beaches are highlight of Shenzhen, and places worth visiting are the Xiaomeisha Beach Resort, Yangmeikeng valley and Dongchong beach.

    Shenzhen is a young city, with a 40-year history, and as such does not have as many historical attractions as other famous cities in China. However, its excellent theme parks and man-made scenic spots have succeeded in attracting many tourists. The Window of the World is a theme park featuring miniature-scale famous landmarks from every corner of the world. The Splendid China - Folk Culture Village introduces its visitors to the history, culture, art, ancient architecture, customs and habits of the various regions of China. Shenzhen Happy Valley is a large, modern theme park that features “Spanish Square”, “Cartoon City”, “Mt. Adventure”, “Gold Mine Town”, “Shangri-la Woods”, “Sunshine Beach”, “Typhoon Bay”, “Playa Maya Water Park” and “Happy Times”, and provides ~100 exciting games for both adults and children. Other attractions include: Shenzhen Dapeng Fortress, OCT East Shenzhen, Sea World, Shenzhen Fairy Lake Botanical Garden, Wutong Mountain and Xiaomeisha Sea World.

    Public transportation:

    All suburbs and the central business districts in Shenzhen are served with public transportation networks including the subway, buses, and taxi.

    Subway (Metro): Shenzhen has nine subway lines that operate from 06:30 to 23:00. Trips on the subway cost between RMB 3-10 Yuan, based on distance travelled. For those wanting to travel to the central area of Shenzhen, the subway is a convenient, cheap, and fast option.

    Bus: The bus networks cover every corner of the city and each trip costs RMB 1-10 Yuan. However, the bus networks are complicated to navigate and the buses are often very crowded. We do not recommend that you choose this option for your travels around Shenzhen.

    Taxi: Taxis in Shenzhen are a very convenient mode of transport. For trips into the urban districts of Shenzhen, you must take a taxi that is colored red. You cannot ride in a taxi that is colored green. Taxis cost RMB 11 Yuan for the first 2 km and then an additional RMB 2.4 Yuan per km. Taxis taken between 23:00-06:00 cost an additional 20%. Passengers are also required to pay a fuel surcharge (RMB 1-3 Yuan) and any tolls or parking fees.
