    A massive miniature model country. Needs a full day and probably an evening; we noticed big crowds queuing for the light show at sundown and this would be a great option.

    Having lived in Beijjng for 3 years and toured around a bit we were impressed with the accuracy and intricacy of Forbidden city, heavenly and summer palaces models etc...the Great Wall model is Cecile B De Mille epic.

    Food was inexpensive and regional snacks readily available. A big issue for young families is the availability of toilets and SC provided lots of clean and convenient facilities. Wheelchair friendly attraction.

    Splendid China has an old school charm; inventiveness, pride and inspiration to travel more. This easily could have been naff but was really very delightful. Will visit again to complete the other half of China.

    Excellent Akimbo cafe next door also.

    Nice to watch some artists painting originals, and others painstakingly painting replicas. The majority, I believe, are oil paintings.

    Really an excellent place for a walk in the middle of the city. Great view of the Shenzhen skyline and of course the Deng Xiaoping statue.

    This place is a great way to get your child excited about traveling. It shows you lots of significant landmarks from around the world. There are a few rides along with some shows as well in the park. In the park, you can buy a fake passport and stamp all of the places that you have been to within the park. This is great to get kids excited about traveling.

    Shenzhen bay park is a wonderful oasis in the middle of a bustling city................providing you do not go there on a weekend or a public holiday.
    I have done both. During the week, it is a wonderfully attractive waterfront park with the possibility to walk for many kilometres. Ample places to take nice pictures of flowers, trees, birds etc, and well built hills protect you from most of the noise from the nearby roads.
    However, if you go during the weekend, or even worse on a public holiday, once you have managed to get onto a pathway, be prepared to shuffle at the speed of the crowd!
    Nightime views of both the city of Shenzhen and distant Hong Kong are wonderful.

    The climb/walk is not easy... Many steps... parts are unpaved and slippery... That being said- the views are incredible... You can see clear across the city to Nanshan...

    Bring sunscreen, water... there are places along the route for drinks and snacks

    I really like this mall because of the diversity of it, many different stores, many different food items... The shopping, i would say is on the pricier end... But you can find some great resturants here...

    We went here around noon on a Sunday and were disappointed that many of the vendor booths weren't open and some of the shops were closed. After reading reviews it might be better to go here later in the afternoon. We still enjoyed our stay and popped into a cafe for an ice cream milk tea to cool down. Please note that the OCT loft is north of the Qiaocheng East Metro station and the OCT harbour is south. This area is much quieter than the harbour in the early afternoon.

    Within China I generally take the subway in major cities, such as Shenzhen. It can be busy at rush hour times, which I tend to avoid by going before or after rush hour periods. Other users are mostly friendly. Subway cars are fairly new and clean. I buy metro cards which enable me to enter the system quickly, and I have download the metro App, which gives me the estimate travel time by the routes available.

    This is a modern museum and huge. I spent more than an hour at this Exhibition Hall of Shenzhen before the Reform and Opening Up. It is all delightful as well as absorbing experience from this museum.

    This is the oldest major shopping mall in Shenzhen. The Mixc is at the heart of the Luohu district. It has the international brands found elsewhere in the world. An interesting palce to see where the locals hang out.

    Very beautiful and serene park right in the center of the city. It is large enough to be organized into a walking path across a pond, an arched viewing bridge, a romantic hidden place called couples bridge, and a Chinese garden. You can also rent boats there.
