Shenzhen

Things to see and do in Shenzhen China

Known throughout China as The Gateway to Hong Kong, in recent years the city of Shenzhen has blossomed enough to be considered a heavyweight destination in its own right. I managed to squeeze in four nights there at the end of my Chinese New Year Trip of 2018. Cue some shopping at the world’s greatest electronics market, a visit to a fascinating oil painting village and quite possibly the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to in Asia (The Bollywood Cafe!). And they’re just a few of the things I loved about Shenzhen, so check out my articles on:
