Shenzhen China

Shenzhen is perhaps the perfect example of how China has risen so quickly as a world power. Before 1979 when it became a special economic zone to attract foreign investment, the city was nothing more than a fishing village called Baoan County. Today, Shenzhen is a bustling metropolis of 15 million people and a manufacturing and consumer electronics giant.

Admittedly, the city has only a few historical attractions to offer, but it does have several interesting themed parks. Being an immigrant city, Shenzhen's food scene is a vibrant one. Travellers can find all sorts of Chinese cuisines in this city – with the predominant one being Cantonese – in addition to a good number of Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Western restaurants.
