In 1979 Shenzhen was a sleepy Southern Chinese fishing village. Just one year later, it became the centre of the country’s first Special Economic Zone, spearheading reforms that have built China into the world’s second biggest economy. Now with a population of more than 10 million, Shenzhen is one of the fastest growing cities worldwide.
Situated on the Pearl River Delta, this sparkling city is a manufacturing and financial centre complete with its own Stock Exchange. When business turns to pleasure, Shenzhen becomes a cultural capital with upscale shopping, nightlife and restaurants, as well as a growing live music scene. Parks and gardens abound, as do excellent golf courses—including Mission Hills, the world’s largest. Shenzhen also excels in the realm of art and design (it was named a UNESCO City of Design in 2008), and serious museums and galleries continue to beckon artists and designers around the globe.
Just a short travel distance from Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou, the city is a gateway for visitors interested in China’s future.
