Where to stay in Shenzhen

Exploring Shenzhen

Shenzhen is one of China’s most affluent cities. In the late 1970s, it was the first city to be designated a Special Economic Zone, and is now one of the largest and the most visited cities in Guangdong province. Thanks to the large influx of foreign visitors over the last few decades, Shenzhen boasts an incredibly modern cityscape with many interesting attractions with which to entertain domestic and international tourists alike. Amusement parks like Happy Valley and Window of the World combine with historic and cultural highlights to make this city a must-visit destination.

The city is home to a wide array of accommodation, from inexpensive lodgings to the upmarket hotel chains which are famous the world over. The central part of the city, which includes suburbs like Futian and Luohu, contains the highest number of hotels in Shenzhen. The city’s public transportation network is not only convenient and reliable but inexpensive, yet many tourists opt to travel around by taxi or bicycle.

Sights nearby

Shenzhen features plenty of interesting landmarks right across the city. Within a few minutes’ walk from any of the attractions rests several hotels that provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for visitors.

Shenzhen Museum
Found inside Shenzhen City Hall’s East Wing, the city’s famous Shenzhen Museum is a grand attraction containing some of the most important exhibits from across China. Established in 2008, it has a range of important displays, including Shang Dynasty bronzes, Shu Kingdom relics, and documents from the development of the Special Economic Zones.

Happy Valley
Arguably the best amusement park in China, Happy Valley welcomes an enormous number of visitors each year. It is larger than Hong Kong Disneyland and boasts classic theme park rides, such as roller coasters and children’s rides. During the summer time, the Playa Maya Water Park which is attached to Happy Valley opens. The carnival-type atmosphere of the parades here makes this park a worthwhile experience and a must-visit for a family day out.

Fairy Lake Botanical Gardens
In the Luoho district of central Shenzhen, the Fairy Lake Botanical Garden is the most astounding and most scenic park in the city, if not in all of China. It spans across many acres of hills at the base of Wutong Mountain and includes several spectacular highlights, including the Hong Fa Temple and the breathtaking Azalea Garden. Visitors can choose from nearby hotels, including the Royal Suites and Towers and the Six Star Motel.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

Travellers can eat for next to nothing in Shenzhen or they can spend large amounts on high-end dining experiences. From the cheap and exciting Eat Streets that serve a host of Chinese delicacies, to major hotel restaurants, such as the five-star establishments in the Shangri-la Hotel, Shenzhen has a wide choice of dining venues. Visitors will also find a long list of bars and night spots in the city, especially in the districts of Shekou, Futian, and the OCT. Futian’s Coco Park is a regular haunt for both locals and expats for nightlife and shopping alike. Shopping hot spots include Shun Hing Square and Dongmen Pedestrian Street.

Public transport

Shenzhen’s public transportation system consists of an underground metro train service and a bus network. The Shenzhen Metro is made up of five lines and a total of 137 stations spread across the city. Cheaper than the metro, the bus system is a comfortable way to explore the city. Most buses are air-conditioned and operate every few minutes, so commuters don’t usually have to wait long for a connection.
