Itinerary

For your full-day Shenzhen Tour From Hong Kong, You will be picked up from selected hotels in Hong Kong and driven to catch a train to Shenzhen. The train journey takes about 1 hour.

Shenzhen is a major city in the south of mainland China’s Guangdong Province, north of Hong Kong. During economic liberalization in the 1970s, Shenzhen became China’s first Special Economic Zone. Prior to that date Shenzhen was just a small village, now it is reputedly one of the world’s fastest growing cities.

Terracotta Warriors Exhibition: The incredible Warriors are a form of funerary art made for the First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty and were discovered in Xian City, Shaanxi Province in 1974. The Warriors' purpose was to help Qin rule another empire in the afterlife. Part of the ‘Terracotta Army’ has been shipped to Shenzhen for exhibition purposes.

You'll have around 20 minutes to admire the Terracotta Warriors' display (dependent on the interests of the passengers and the group size). Visit the Shenzhen Museum of History & Folk Culture.

Afterwards, visit a silk product factory (If time permits) which offers a variety of silk items. Another highlight of the tour is around 2.5 hours shopping time at the Lo Wu Commercial Shopping Mall.
