This is a well-kept area with a chance to explore nature. We took our students there for a field trip.

Never expected this mangrove nature reserve is so relaxing. Other than biking, it is also a good place for walking along the Shenzhen Bay. Many many trees in this park. I love it and will definitely visit it again to see sunset in future.

City planners had the foresight to preserve a few miles of coastline along Shenzhen Bay, making a relaxing park and boardwalk for all to enjoy. Parking there on weekends has apparently become a problem recently. It's much easier to take the bus to Hongshu Ling, (Red) Mangrove Park. Rent a bike, bring a lunch, jog or simply take a relaxing...

I visited the place with one of my chinese friend. Its really Amazing place. Although its over crowded, I find the place really peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend to visit the place in the afternoon. A bicycle ride is optional. Sit near the water land waiting for the sunset, Its amazing experience.

I only had two days in Shenzhen, but I wanted to go somewhere nature-y without going too far (like to the nice beaches). This proved to be a perfect place to walk around and see the mangrove trees. I've been to much better preserved, nicer mangrove forests than this one, but considering it is located in a huge Chinese city,... More
