Shenzhen

Shenzhen is a coastal city, close to Hong Kong, in the south of Guangdong Province. Demarcated from Hong Kong by Shenzhen River to the south, it is bordered by Dongguan and Huizhou to the north, Daya Bay and Dapeng Bay to the east, and Lingding Sea and the mouth of the Pearl River to the west.

As Shenzhen embraces the world, it becomes internationalized. As China's first special economic zone, Shenzhen began to open up to the rest of the world in 1980, becoming one of the country's major channels of communication with the outside world. Shenzhen has 17 sea, land and airports, including China's largest land passenger port and land cargo port. In 2011, the 26th Universidad will be held here, which will make Shenzhen the youngest city in history to host the Games.  
 
Shenzhen also boasts of many great attractions like Splendid China, Windows of the World and Chinese Folk Culture Village. These attractions lure thousands of tourists from all over the world each year. Apart from these artificial sights, various verdant mountains, relaxing beaches, theme parks, safari park and arboretum are also enough to delight you.

With its excellent environment, glitzy economy and opening mindset, Shenzhen has become a dream destination for many enterprising persons as well as a resort for travelers.
