Tourists are finding more and more things to do in Shenzhen, one of the most rapidly-growing tourist regions in China. A mere fishing village called Bao’an County until 1979, Shenzhen was the first city designated as a special economic zone, a move that helped boost the region’s economy as well as its number of residents. Shenzhen’s population has climbed from 310,000 to more than 8.6 million people in less than three decades! While modern attractions prevail, historic landmarks also can be found in Shenzhen. Spend a day ogling at artsy replicas of world-renowned attractions at Window of the World, and then step back in time at Dapeng Ancient City.
