Busy, modern, and vibrant, it’s hard to believe that just 30 years ago the city of Shenzhen was a small fishing community on the Hong Kong border. Now one of China’s most populous cities and a big hit with domestic tourists, Shenzhen is absolutely thriving. There’s a fantastic arts scene, wonderful restaurants, excellent shopping opportunities, and a diverse bar scene that will impress any party animal.
