With its wavy design, the Sheraton Hotel is the most distinct piece of architecture on the Dameisha beach, one of Shenzhen's liveliest beaches.
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.
