Shenzhen is a coastal city in the south of Guangdong Province, neighboring Daya Bay and Dapeng Bay to the east, Pearl River Estuary and Lingdingyang to the west, and Dongguan and Huizhou to the north and Hong Kong to the south. It is only 41 kilometers (25 miles) from Hong Kong. Benefiting from the superior location and China's reform and opening-up policy, Shenzhen has become a modern and international metropolis since 1978. Dubbed as 'China Silicon', today's Shenzhen gathers more than 14,000 high-tech companies including Huawei, Lenovo, and Tencent. It also becomes the innovation hub as a new generation of start-ups emerging, which makes it the most competitive and innovative city in China.
While Shenzhen does not have as many historical attractions as other famous cities in China, it has created a number of excellent theme parks that entertain while teaching visitors about China and the world. China-Folk Culture Villages introduces visitors to China's long history and varied cultures, while Window of the World will take you to every corner of the world in one day. Additionally, if you want to make your stay even more luxurious, visit Happy Valley, the largest of its kind in the city, located on a picturesque coastline. Come to enjoy the coastal view, the theme parks, the city, and especially the local people.
Although Shenzhen is located about a degree south of the Tropic of Cancer, due to the Siberian anticyclone it has a warm, monsoon-influenced, humid subtropical climate. Winters are mild and relatively dry, due in part to the influence of the South China Sea, and frost is very rare; it begins dry but becomes progressively more humid and overcast. However, fog is most frequent in winter and spring, with 106 days per year reporting some fog. Early spring is the cloudiest time of year, and rainfall begins to dramatically increase in April; the rainy season lasts until late September to early October.
