Shenzhen China



Surrounded by mountains and facing the sea, Shenzhen's mild climate as well as plentiful sunshine and rainfall all year round is favorable for tourist outdoor activities. Shenzhen is located at the estuary of the Pearl River. The location is often influenced by typhoons during May to December, particularly during July and September.

In case, you wish to be part of the China Hi-Tech Fair, make plans to visit Shenzhen during the second week of October. Every year, the fair is held between 12th to the 17th of October.


Shenzhen - mirror image of Hong Kong

Shenzhen, China is an example of the stupendous economic growth of China. In the eyes of the world, Shenzhen is the cradle of China's industrial revolution. The free market reforms were experimented in 1978. Today, Shenzhen takes pride in being the first city to experience the explosive economic growth in China. Shenzhen is an example of dramatic social, cultural and economic transformation from a tiny fishing village to a modern metropolis with towering skyscrapers.

The distance between Shenzhen and Hong Kong is hardly 30 kms. The language, culture, dialect and economic growth are the same as Hong Kong. Hence, a dual currency system, both Hong Kong dollar as well as Chinese Renminbi RMB (also referred as Yuan) can be used.
