Shenzhen is the closest thing to a snapshot of of modern China, and to visit is to see history in the making. A tier one city erected in 30 years on top a historical industrial township, Shenzhen retains its lost-in-time urban villages - now flanked by futuristic skyscrapers. Shenzhen is home to China tech giants Huawei, Tencent, Lenovo, and more - the Googles and Apples of China. Its business, architecture and technology are booming - but none more than its population, comprised 80% of foreign and Chinese immigrants. All come with their own unique cultures making Shenzhen China's melting pot.
The daily transformation, the historic villages nestled between new skyscrapers, the melding of cultures, and the breakneck pace of growth represents the very core of modern China. Come to see the Asian frontier, and leave your Lonely Planet guide at home - it'll be obsolete by the time you arrive!
