City Guide: Shenzhen

     You can read historical books from cover to cover, but you won't find it…Shenzhen – a city with no history.

     Just a few years back Shenzhen appeared on the world map thus its history is reflected not in the textbooks, but in Chinese memory. Established in 1979, Shenzhen was a small fishing village that later became a child of a huge political experiment - the first of China’s Special Economic Zones.

     From its past to present you can find out about Shenzhen without books, but on your trip there. From cheap hotels in Shenzhen to one appointed with all the luxuries you could ever imagine, all available with maps, photos and secure forms at Booked.net.

     Designated a the first of the Zones, Shenzhen was an opportunity to experiment with market reforms without posing a threat to both the political and economic systems of China. About 40km north of Hong Kong, Shenzhen was chosen from other cities because of this proximity to capital resources.

     Since then, Shenzhen became an industrial engine powering China. The city with the fastest speed of development in the world, it quickly became the richest Chinese city, thus saw investments of more than 30 billion dollars for building high-tech companies that greatly changed its landscape.

     Once a hilly area, the only elevations of today are Lianhua Shan (Lotus Hill), Bijia Shan (Bijia Mountain) and Wutong Shan along the Pearl River Delta. You are hardly able to notice this geographical tapestry from satellite, while the ninth tallest structure in China - Diwang Building – looms far away the city limits.

Other attractions include;

- Tomb of the Young Song Emperor, a tomb of the last Emperor of the Southern Song Dynasty

- Dapeng Ancient Fort, founded in 1394 it dates back to the regency of Ming Dynasty

- Chiwan Tin Hau Temple, the biggest temple in China founded in 14th century

- Window of The World is a beautiful park that occupies 480,000 square meters and offers unforgettable natural landscapes

     When you exhaust the list of places to see and things to do, relax on the terrace of cozy bar or cafe and try to peer into the faces of people dashing around. Thanks to them famous bi-weekly magazine – Forbes – ranked Shenzhen to be the fifth largest city by population density in the world. Just imagine that Shenzhen has 8,615,500-strong population while unofficial quantity of its residents doubles this number.

     Forbes amused its readers with huge numbers, but forgot to add a few words about Chinese hospitality. But you can experience it on your own with Booked.net – a personal approach to every client.
