Shenzhen, a young and modern city, is well known for its developed economy but not its attractions. However, the area offers six interesting places worthy of a visit. Three great theme parks, including China Folk Culture Village, Window of the World, and Happy Valley are Shenzhen’s main attractions.
The China Folk Culture Village, consisting of the Folk Culture Village and Miniature China, give you a quick tour of China in a day. It is the most popular attraction in Shenzhen. Check out our Shenzhen tours, which cover the essence of Shenzhen or contact us to design your own tour of Shenzhen.
