Shenzhen is a large city in southern China that serves as a gateway to Hong Kong. In addition, it is a major manufacturing center with a busy port and large international community. Many people come to Shenzhen on business, but there are lots of great attractions to stop at during your visit. Wutong Mountain National Park, Hong Fa Buddhist Temple and He Xiangning Art Museum are some of the local sites.
Many visitors fly into Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport (SZX), that connects to the subway. You can get anywhere in the city quickly and conveniently using the vast public transportation network. It is possible to cross from Hong Kong into Shenzhen via rail by taking the MTR East Rail Line to Lo Wu station and passing through immigration. From there, it is a short walk to Futian Kou An Station on Shenzhen Metro Line 4. Guests can also take a ferry directly from Hong Kong International Airport to Shenzhen or take the high-speed train from Guangzhou.
One of Shenzhen's best kept secrets is that it is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in China. If you are looking to soak up some sun, go directly to Xichong Beach. It is about half an hour from the city center and known to be clean and secluded.
