Shenzhen is getting brighter
Nov 2019 • Couples
We could watch the evening light show from our 33rd floor room at Shangri-La Hotel Futian, but we decided to watch the Saturday Evening show from the Horizon lounge at 7pm. We had some wines and appetizers while watch the dazzling display of LED lights on a grand scale. Yes, indeed that China is prospering and we were in awed of the spectacular display of the lights. Although the display only lasted approximately little over ten minutes, but it left a long lasting impression for both of us.

Amazing free light show
Oct 2018 • Family
There was a light show that we watched last week at the Shenzhen Civic Square. It starts at 8 pm and lasts about half an hour. The surrounding buildings was the background to the lights coordinated with music. This is better than the one in Hong Kong.
Lots of people and very orderly with police presence to help.

Shenzhen Museum + Industrial Exhibition + Urban Planning Exhibition
Oct 2018 • Couples
The complex has two exhibitions that can be visited. Shenzhen Museum got its own rewiews on TA and is definitely worth a visit. It’s entrance is in the west side of the complex. On the north side you get to the industrial Exhibition. Exhibits provided by the companies. Not old enough to be regarded as industrial heritage, not modern enough to be exciting. The building itself is kind of spectacular, the roof terrace on the 4th floor is a open space with some nice views and a good feel for the the size of the structure.

Urban planning hall is more propaganda than information. Shenzhen urban planning may be a copy of Singapore but unfortunately nothing much was copied from from the Singapore urban Planning museum.

Free entry though and the aircon works perfectly

Ok, the civic centre is basically this hug square in which a little temple is in the middle of it that you can go rest there. There are skyscrapers all over on 4 sides filled with green trees too! So it's very lovely to see and be there.

Really interesting Architecture -- but not much to do for a visitor...

Really cool building. Front area is a large paved area the kids use for skate boarding at night, else it's pretty empty/underused. Not really an "attraction" or destination, though lots of things to do in that area...

Government Heart of Shenzhen
Feb 2015 • Solo
Civic Center, Shenzhen is a must see area of the city, first for the amazing architecture of the city hall itself, and secondly for the museum there. I didn't have time to see the museum but I did walk the beautiful and lush landscaped park in the center, the perimeter of which led me to the Civic Center building itself and the massive square in front of it, used as a park for locals.

On the day I visited, it was New Years week where most locals had the week off. The square in front of the civic building was bustling with children playing, adults socializing and sight seeing the area themselves.

The amazing curving architecture of the government building is so wide that you would need a wide angle lense to take it all in. My little camera could take only parts of the building from a distance.

The entire area appears to occupy one massive block incorporating the very green gardens, walkways, square, and civic center itself. The perimeter of the blocked area has many metro entrances and even one within the park itself. It is easy to get to - the metro stop is called Civic Center.
