It’s hard to believe that until relatively recently, Shenzhen was a small fishing village. However, its fortunes took a dramatic turn in 1980 when the late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping settled on Shenzhen as the location for the first of China’s Special Economic Zones. The designation came as part of the country’s wide-reaching reforms at the time of its opening up. Ever since, the city has gone from strength to strength, and has now fully emerged as a truly global metropolis.
Shenzhen’s location within the Pearl River Delta and bordering the New Territories of Hong Kong continue to play a significant role in the city’s ongoing successes, particularly as a transit and communication center. Indeed, its seaports, airport and land ports are important hubs in Asia.
A subtropical climate and dramatic natural scenery - its mountainous border with Hong Kong is particularly stunning - make for a pleasant environment in which to live, and to visit. Tourists are particularly well-catered for, and Shenzhen’s world-renowned attractions in include Window of the World, Safari Park Shenzhen, and Evergreen eco-resort.
For gourmands, Shenzhen is an unmissable stop on any China tour thanks to its distinctive local cuisine, as well as being a veritable melting pot of tastes from all over the country. Make sure Cantonese dim sum and congee are on your ‘must eat’ menu, and be sure to seek out a growing roster of world-class international restaurants increasingly establishing themselves in Shenzhen.
