About Shenzhen

Shenzhen is a modern and beautiful metropolis located in southern China just across the border from Hong Kong. A popular destination for business travellers and Chinese tourists, Shenzhen has been relatively undiscovered by international tourists. However that is changing as people hear about the city’s great attractions and that it is easily accessed from Hong Kong.

Described as a window of China’s opening up policy, Shenzhen was established as a Special Economic Zone in 1980. Since that time it has grown from a fishing village into a major and economically significant city.

A planned city, Shenzhen features striking architecture, an abundance of parks and open space, a modern road network with wide tree-lined streets and boulevards, a new and continually expanding underground metro rail system, and a wide range of tourist attractions.

Shenzhen was selected as the most liveable city in China in a report released at the 2007 China City Forum in Beijing. The Beijing International Institute for Urban Development compared and analysed the quality of life in 287 cities in China, examining factors such as facilities, government services, clothing, food, accommodation and travel. In another study, conducted by the Hong Kong-based China Research Institute for Urban Competitiveness, Shenzhen was named as the third most beautiful city in China.
