Shenzhen is a very interesting city, which grew from being a small fishing village to a modern mega-city of 13 million people in just a few years. It borders Hong Kong and is conveniently accessible.
Shenzhen’s history, although short, is fascinating. Deng Xiaoping, also referred to as the architect of China’s economic reconstructions post the Cultural Revolution, chose Shenzhen to make landmark speeches that would change China’s future forever. Those speeches solidified the belief in a market economy that was adopted across the nation.
This tour focuses on history and cultural facts, which highlight the contrast between Shenzhen and its sister Hong Kong. Your guide will take you to modern and old districts where you will be able to experience the local way of life.
A Chinese visa might be needed to enter Shenzhen, depending on your nationality.
