Traveling China in Particular Shenzhen:

Experiencing ‘real china” and its sometimes quirky, quaint even historically ”story – like” perception of life is riveting and shockingly surprising at the same time.

      Your comments are well received and understood, yes we dont appreciate how much this country has evolved and now the leader in most things, so i would recommend you do that visit but at least a fortnight so as not to be pushed for time and enjoyment sacrificed, My mother of 75 years came to visit me and was awed wanted to stay but couldn’t as tired and too much to see and do, so after 2 weeks returned to USA ,

    Thanks for writing this guide, really anjoyed reading it and also really useful. Is the Zhuhai international circuit (the racing track) in this area? How far from city center it is? When I visit Shenzhen, I’d deifnetely want to check that out too (beside the regular attractions), since I’m a big racing fan.
