Shenzhen is a dynamic and creative city of South China, set in beautiful tropical green surroundings within a futuristic and modern yet safe, family friendly city. Directly linked to Hong Kong only 45 minutes away, Shenzhen is an artistic and tech hub founded on innovation and creativity. This Pearl River Delta megalopolis is one of China’s richest cities, having grown from 30,000 inhabitants in 1980, when it was designated the first special economic zone, to a population of almost 12 million. 

In 2008, Shenzhen was named a UNESCO Creative City of Design. The city continues to thrive as a leader of arts and creativity. The modern inner city is surrounded by palm-studded districts of gated communities, beautiful parks and former industrial buildings turned into contemporary art districts, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and high-ceilinged galleries.
