Why Shenzhen? In 1980 Shēnzhèn was designated as the first of China's five Special Economic Zones and as a result of that it became the fastest growing city in history. Today it is a mega-city metropolis and thrives with over 20 million people. The city links Hong Kong to China’s mainland and millions of migrants have been drawn to its golden gates from the Chinese countryside since the 80's. But its not all work and no play, this free-spirited metropolis has a thriving arts, nightlife and music scene, an abundance of multicultural dining and heaps of shopping opportunities. If you step away from the skyscrapers and malls you'll discover fascinating 'urban villages', poor but vibrant migrant worker communities that were once clan villages before the city swallowed them up.
