Deleted this:

At that time, one of China's great leader, Deng Xiao Ping, plan to test his idea of opening the China. Some of his advisor told him to start with Shanghai, one of few big cities in China. But Deng thinks that if you want to make a painting, it is better to start from the scratch than modified exsisting one. So Deng choose the small fishing village near the economic giant, Hongkong.

Start from the scratch, they draw roads, tunnels, economic area, etc. Deng send the army to build the village. It took Deng only 15 years to create new big city in China. Shenzhen is the success story for Deng's plan, then he implemented the same plan to other area in China.

It does not seem relevant for travellers.

I think it is useful background info, but the content could use a little copyediting. Jpatokal 03:05, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
I think the information is less than accurate.

Mention of Lonely Writers Publishing[edit]

Is in the first paragraph. Is this allowed? --MarinaK 20:31, 16 February 2009 (EST)MarinaK.

Edit war?[edit]

A paragraph about Shenzhen OCT company has been added several times in the "Understand" section, and I've deleted it each time. I did add a shorter mention of the company under "See"; I think that is all that is required. Other opinions?

Whoever is adding it, a much more useful thing to do would be to add some details in the listing for Happy Valley. Few travellers will have much use for a blurb on the company, but many probably want to know what Happy Valley offers, what prices are, and so on. Pashley 09:07, 24 September 2009 (EDT)


Map?[edit]

I'm not sure how to change this, but the map to Shenzhen subway is the projected map of 2011, not the current map, which only has two lines. Could someone change this?

Can't see why anybody would want to change this. The new lines will all be up before the end of 2010. Actually I notice that there is a line missing.

Full Chinese issued at LoWu border?[edit]

The article mentions this, but does not say for which nationalities or the costs involved. Is it possible for US passport holders - they cannot get the Shenzhen 5 day visa.

Link to Botanical Gardens[edit]

Some one please add this link, I could not as it said someone was already editing it. Very strange. http://www.szbg.org/html/en/ <-- English description and map.

Districts[edit]

Since a new orientation sub-section has been created, wouldn't it be good to add a map and create districts pages? GiulioC (talk) 05:02, 11 March 2019 (EDT)


Hi GiuloC,

Your suggestion of an accompanying map seems very sensible. Do you know how to put one together? I regret putting a map together is currently beyond my editing skills. —The preceding comment was added by 59.149.34.52 (talkcontribs)

Hi there, we have some guidelines for maps. In my opinion the fastest way is to find an existing map on Commons and modify it, and then upload it on Wikitravel Shared so it can be used on every WT site. GiulioC (talk) 06:16, 13 March 2019 (EDT)


Thank you GiulioC,


I'll check out what you suggest. —The preceding comment was added by 59.148.66.238 (talkcontribs)

Hi, this map might be a good starting point. What do you think? GiulioC (talk) 05:06, 16 March 2019 (EDT)

Edits by IBAlex[edit]

Hi IBAlex,

I wonder if you may be kind enough please to help me understand why my edits that you reverted are vandalism?

Any help is appreciated. —The preceding comment was added by 59.148.66.238 (talkcontribs)

Edits by Binbin[edit]

Hi user:binbin,

Thanks for your note pointing out you've made some edits. Can I politely ask please what your edits achieve?

Thanks for any help. —The preceding comment was added by 116.49.76.108 (talkcontribs)

Hi there, thank you for reaching out here.
I've moved all images to the right side of the article as we ususally do in the articles and adjusted the size of a few images to make the layout of the article more balanced. Hope you don't mind. --Binbin (talk) 03:56, 20 July 2019 (EDT)

Metro table[edit]

If I recall correctly I added a table of Shenzhen Metro stats around the end of 2018. In a possibly bold edit I've just removed that table. There's a further upgrade to the metro planned for November and 6 more in 2020. Then many more as the phase IV plan is enacted. Hence the reason I have removed the table is to remove the maintenance overhead in updating the table. On consideration the table is actually of limited if any value to travellers. The key piece of info to keep updated as the metro network expands is the updated versions of the metro map.

Please add any comments you may have re this. —The preceding comment was added by 218.250.156.225 (talkcontribs)

Hi, thank you for your continuous contributions to Wikitravel. You are really making our community a better place for all travellers around the world. Regarding the metro table, I think for travellers the most important thing is to have the most up-to-date metro map (which is already there) detailing all the stations and the approximate directions. I agree with you about removing the table you've added. You do really have put a lot of thoughts in adding the table, and even more in removing it. I really appreciate and respect your efforts! Hope we will have you with us all along. Cheers! --Binbin (talk) 03:16, 28 September 2019 (EDT)

Thanks User:Binbin for taking the rime to reply.

Change of image of sign on arrival at Luohu checkpoint[edit]

I added a sign a few days ago of the Metro sign to look out for on arrival at Luohu Checkpoint. It wasn't a very good pic due e.g. to blurring. I've replaced with an image that makes the sign much clearer. —The preceding comment was added by 218.250.156.225 (talkcontribs)
