Shenzhen

Located in southeastern China on the Pearl River Delta, it is a modern metropolis linking Hong Kong to mainland China.

On a cruise to Shenzhen: a journey into the heart of the first market economy experiment in the People's Republic of China. A successful experiment which, in 30 years, has transformed a town of 20,000 inhabitants into a metropolis that is home to more than 13 million people. Industrial, financial and port activities characterize the dynamic and often frenetic life in Shenzhen. Without detracting from the tourist activities, which include visits to the Window of the World theme parks and Splendid China, the shore excursion to the Wutong Mountain national park and even a relaxing day on the white sands of Dameisha Beach are also worthwhile.

Not to be missed:

  • The dizzying Ping An International Financial Center, a very tall skyscraper.

  • Climb the Wutong Mountain to an altitude of about 3,094 feet above sea level

  • The 130 reproductions of world tourist attractions in the Window of the World park.
