Shenzhen Afternoon Private Tour of Huaqiangbei Shopping and Dance Shows

1 review
Shenzhen is China’s answer to Silicon Valley—but, unless you speak Chinese, Huaqiangbei’s welter of retail outlets is just bewildering. Head straight to the products you want with the help of your private guide, then unwind at Splendid China, Shenzhen’s original cultural theme park. Tour miniature villages, watch two spectacular dance shows, and feast on a Chinese dinner. Your package includes door-to-door round-trip private transfers.

There are some interesting things to do here, like get a painting class. Watch Artisans at work. But you have to spend a little time walking around and stopping in places. Somethings are not so obvious at first glance.

Dafen is where we go to relax, to buy art and art supplies, to walk, to see artists in action, to enjoy the architecture and the street vibe. There are art shops as far as the eye can see, workshops that do framing, printing and block mounting. The silk thread art is extraordinary but the oils and watercolors are why people go there. The original work is impressive but the reproductions are what make Dafen for me. Hand painted reproductions that are excellent but do not pretend to be anything other than reproductions.

Great place to visit and see so many oil painting shops - time constraint - will go again - hopefully during my next trip.

A big village surrounded with shops with all kinds of natural art and paintings. Most of the shops are owned by the artists who sell their own paintings

If you are into any form of painting, be it water, oil or plain sketching, you should visit this place. It consists of a number of rows of shophouses but the real action is in the alleys where you can find the artists at work or people paying for a lesson. There are also shops selling painting and art supplies.
