A young, affluent and undeniably modern economic hub.
China’s third-largest city is also a designated Special Economic Zone, and it stands as one of the most affluent metropolitan centres in the country. It emerged in the 1980s as a rapidly growing economic hub, and its commercial success is held up as a model for other emerging metropolises in China. Many of the visitors seeking accommodation in Shenzhen are here on business. However, leisure travellers also cross over from Hong Kong to enjoy the city’s cosmopolitan wiles – particularly the shopping, dining and theme parks. Shenzhen International Airport also serves as an important transport hub to other regions in China.
