Shenzhen- April 10-11

11 Apr 2009  Entered Shenzhen throuh Lok Ma Chau- real tidy & people there were very helpful seems alot easier to get through then Lo Wu. Also it is the start of the MTR and only 2 stops before you need to change over to ctach the next train to Windows of the World at the end of the MTR.
0.0 of 5 stars based on 0 votes

2 days visting a few of Shenzhen tourist sights using the MTR & Buses. MTR was Ok - Buying a map is real handy as well especially if it has the bus routes.

  • 1. Empire Hotel
    Empire Hotel, Shenzhen, Guangdong

    Not too bad a Hotel - it is given a 4 star rating. However, we have stayed in 2 star Hotels that would be a lot nicer & offered a few extra's. Clean - but needs to be renovated to be more appelaing - slightly further than 2 Km from Lo Wu train station - Taxi varied form 15- 20 RMB

  • 2. Windows of the World Shenzhen

    Really good place to visit no matter what your age - need a good 3- 4 hours to visit the place - probably need longer - lots to see. We paid a 120 RMB for admission then paid another 45 RMB. Thought buying a 3 ride ticked was an excellent way to see the place - $45 RMB all up - which gave a 1. aride on the Monorail. 2. Ride on a tour bus around other area's of the park at ground level with stops to take photos. 3. Ride to the top of the Effiel Tower.

  • 3. Splendid China Park
    Splendid China Park, Shenzhen, Guangdong

    Top attraction - However, only visted one section in terms of the Park - Check out a the cultural side of the Park as we arrived after 5.00pm and were going to go to the cutural show at 1930. Great place. However the real attration was the Cutural Show at 1930 - Never seen such a spectacular show with lighting & costuming. I am not much into culture. However, I was impressed & would go back to watch it again. Spent a bit of time videoing the show so didn't really appreciate what was happeing. But well worth the visit. as stated earlier will be going back for another visit to take in more of the cultural shows that on during the day.

  • 4. Citic Minsk World

    If you are into a bit of milatary history then the Citic Minsk World could be for you. It is a Russian Aircraft Carrier that is now an amusement attraction. We were unfortunate to vist it when their must have been a dsicount for school children. Not sure why you would want to take a whole lot of school kids to see an Aircraft carrier. Getting to & from Minsk World was easy - we caught the 103 & the 205. We chose the 205 on the way back as it took us back to lo Wu train station. Understanding where buses go is really important. So make sure you use a map.
