Anybody here has been to / is familiar with Shen Zhen? Me and my friend is going over there this weekend and think might check out the city when we are done with biz. I did some research, there are window of the world, folk village...but don't sound very interesting. Are there any cultural/interesting places that you guys recommend?

Shen Zhen - Is that the industrial city bordering on Hong Kong?

They have the world's 1st BRT (Bus Rapid Transit system) that is connected with their underground metro train network. Zhen Shen is part of the 9 cities integration plan which aims to be connected by high speed rail so that no city is more than an hour's journey away from any other.

It was only a village before, so no cultural history as such, but plenty of modern development.

I heard about their electronics component 'city'.

Hong Kong across the border would have far more to do for the passing tourist.

Thanks, man. Did not know Shen Zhen has the 1st BRT, thought it was Beijing! Anyways, we are in Hong Kong right now and the idea is going cross the border on the weekend and have a look around. Sounds nothing too excited except an industrial city. Might just have a nice meal over there.

I've heard good things about the Xianhu Botanical Gardens in Shenzhen, and the beautiful Hongfa Temple located within it. Here's a list of minor attractions in Shenzhen:

Things to do in Shenzhen

Dapeng fortress and the beach look kinda cool.

Thanks! We decided to go see the Minsk aircraft carrier since we don't think there's time for us to go to Dapeng Fortress, the traffic in Shen Zhen I heard is kinda crappy. But the fortress is definitely on the list now!
