Best Day Tour from Hong Kong to See Modern Splendid China

If you just have a short stay in and around Hong Kong, Shenzhen is one of the best choices. It is very suitable for a day tour from the neighboring Hong Kong, about 50 kilometers away. In 4 days, start your tour in “Asia’s World City” well blended with western meets eastern culture and and go out of your way to find much more beyond the city’s famous skyline - vivid Hong Kong story, traditional local customs, quiet temples and Tang-Dynasty garden, street food...With a high speed train taking you to Shenzhen in mainland China quickly, you’ll open a window to see the modern China and its young people. Shenzhen is a miracle city and UNESCO-awarded Creative city with just over 40 years old which has developed at an extraordinarily fast pace. From here you can catch a glimpse of the modern skyscrapers of the whole city in 360 degree and the miniature of the splendid China in very short time.
