Exploring Shekou

Prior to the development of China’s Special Economic Zones in the 1980s, Shekou was already being built as an industrial area by Chinese merchants from Hong Kong and Guangdong province. This industrial zone at the tip of Nantou Peninsula became a hub for major global oil companies, including the likes of Chevron, Statoil, and Shell, and this foreign influence has helped to make Shenzhen a foreigner-friendly destination.

This important area of Shenzhen and Guangdong province has refurbished itself to accommodate the many foreign residents living within its borders. Several major attractions now reside within Shekou, including the magnificent Port and Sea World. An abundance of reliable hotels dots the area. Getting between the downtown districts of Shenzhen and Shekou is easy as Line 2 of the Shenzhen Metro serves the area. A convenient ferry service travels regularly between this seaside community and Hong Kong Airport so tourists can fly into Hong Kong and then reach Shekou in no time.

Sights nearby

To accommodate the growing number of foreign residents, local visitors, and international tourists, Shekou is now home to plenty of comfortable hotels which are only a short distance from some of southern China’s best attractions.

Window of the World
Just as the name suggests, this interesting theme park is a window to the world. Over 130 of the planet’s most iconic landmarks have been recreated within this Nanshan district amusement park. Visitors will be able to explore many of the world’s top attractions here, albeit on a smaller scale. Paris’s Eiffel Tower, Switzerland’s Matterhorn Mountain, Borobudur’s beautiful yet monolithic temple, and Manhattan’s sprawling skyline are all on display. The Victor Hotel, a four-star accommodation option in Shekou, rests just a few kilometres from the theme park.

Happy Valley
The enigmatic Happy Valley is a theme park that contains the best rides in China. Larger and arguably more famous than Hong Kong Disneyland, this Nanshan district amusement park is home to abundant rides and other attractions, including Gold Mine Town, Typhoon Bay, and Mt. Adventure. During the warm summer months, the water-park attached to Happy Valley, Playa Maya Water Park, opens. Travelling to the park via the Happy Line monorail is undoubtedly the most convenient way to reach the site.

Splendid China Folk Village
Tourists interested in the history of China and the ethnic diversity of this amazing country should not miss a visit to the Splendid China Folk Village. Situated within the Overseas Chinese Town, the theme park is one of the largest amusement parks in the country and includes displays that cover the culture and history of China. From the miniature depiction of the Great Wall and the Temple of Heaven, to the fascinating reenactments of China’s most famous battles, this site is a favourite tourist attraction.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

If tourists are looking for cuisine from all over the globe, then Shekou is the place to find it. There is everything from major American chains to sit-down European and Asian restaurants. Of course, some of the finest restaurants on offer are found in the high-end hotels around Shekou, including the Ascot Maillen Shenzhen and the Somerset Garden City Shenzhen.

The nightlife in Shekou is among the best in the region, especially when it comes to bars. Shopping is not as popular here as it is in other nearby districts, like Luohu and Futian, but visitors can still find excellent retail facilities at the AllCity Mall and the Garden City Center.

Public transport

Shekou is serviced by several public transportation options. The district is the terminus for the Shekou Line of Shenzhen’s Metro, which travels to and from downtown Shenzhen, stopping at several important attractions, such as SeaWorld and the port, on the way. Shekou also has several overland train stations, including Shekou West and Shenzhen West stations. However, trains have limited reach, so travelling around the district is best done via bus.
