Weekend Trip To Shenzhen!

I have now spend nearly two weeks in China and I'm already about to fall in love with this place. The food, the cultural differences, the architecture and my job here.
As mentioned in my latest blog in here, will Zhuhai be my residence for the next 3 months. One of the benefits by living Zhuhai is that the city is geographically placed very well if you want to explore Southern China - So this is pretty much want we all do every weekend.

Last weekend we where a larger group, who decided to go to Shenzhen. The city is next to Hong Kong and only 1 hour away from Zhuhai by ferry, so we didn't need to use many hours on transportation.

Shenzhen is a major city in the Guangdong Provence with a total population around 15 million people. Shenzhen's modern cityscape is the result of its vibrant economy, because of a lot of foreign investments. I was therefore looking forward to explore this modern city.

Shenzhen's modern cityscape
When we arrived there in the evening, we went around those fascinating buildings and actually got lost because we where truly too much fascinated of this enormous city. 

Exploring Sea World square 
Next morning we went around the city, and discovered that the city actually has more than only tall skyscrapers on its program. The Sea World square is a new area, with inspiration for western buildings.

After breakfast in Sea World area, we decided to go and explore some of China's history. The theme park, Splendid China is a park where China's history is visualised in a new and more fashionable way. 

Random selfie with Chinese people outside Splendid China
Splendid China, was definitely a good experience. The experience was not only supposed to be good for ourselves, in the matter of fact that a lot of Chinese people finds it pretty much attractive to have pictures together with foreigners, as in everywhere in China. 

After such a good experience in Shenzhen, can I not wait to blog about my next upcoming experience here in China.
