We chose to book the shopping tour to Shenzhen through Viator. It was well organised, our escort Yvonne was very friendly and explained everything well, and was well organised The company sorted all train tickets and visas which saved us a lot of time and trouble. Once in China we met our guide Vicky - she was sweet and also knowledgeable and made the day pleasant. The visit to Lichi park was nice and relaxing - the meridian centre interesting- but the jade and silk factory (which was a bamboo product warehouse) were ok/so so. Lunch was organised at the shangri-la which was a very nice and unexpected bonus- and our vegetarian request was easily sorted. The shopping centre at LoWu was much better than we had expected going by other reviews. We were hardly hassled and those who tried to interact and invite you in were all polite and accepted no if we weren't interested. Prices however not hugely amazing- even with bartering - they worked out about the same as Hong Kong markets. Shops very repetitive- in fact Yvonne gave us the option for an extra half hour there but no one needed or wanted it. All in all a fun and interesting day out.

We came there only because of a package from Hong Kong to Shenzen, China. From the start of tour (in Hong Kong) our tour guide were telling that they are a separate country from China- she was really in conviction that they are not part of it and they are just a small country separated from it. When we came in China, the tour guide was telling that HK is a part of their big country which made us confused. LOL. We came by train from Hong Kong to Shenzen and when we arrived in the immigration for the stamps, there was no separate lane for foreigners (it's like China is the most populated country and even in our lane, most of them were just inserting themselves irregardless that people are waiting for their turn, and the control officers *police* don't bother controlling them. Though our tour guide was so accommodating and friendly, at least, hope most of the people there would give tourists a smile. After all, they are promoting the place as a tourist destination, it would be a great help in magnetizing visitors because of their hospitality.

We went for a day out and a bit of shopping. A word of advice - make sure you know what you want to buy before you go and make sure you know what the latest fashion items look like. Everything is bang uptodate and bargaining is de rigour but it took us about 90 minutes to get through the border and the day Visa cost about £30 each. Interesting day out and probably only worth it (shopping wise) if you take a suitcase (like most of the others) and hit the shops with purpose and a good deal of prior knowledge of what you want, what the latest items look like and what the costs are. Then good value but for a day out ...... Better things to do!

Great experience on a day tour to shenzen from Hongkong by Metro, found the city very neat and clean, visit to "windows of the world" was tremendous fun. The Bollywood cafe had a great authentic Indian food, dal tadka, chaat papdi, naam and many other dishes makes you feel you are in an Indian restaurant in India.
