Shenzhen in southeastern China, is a modern metropolis that links Hong Kong to China’s mainland. It’s known for its shopping destinations, including Luohu Commercial City, a massive mall with a vast array of wares, from tailors’ custom clothing to designer bags. Shenzhen’s cityscape results from its vibrant economy – made possible by rapid foreign investment following the institution of the policy of “reform and opening-up” in 1979. The city is a leading global technology hub, dubbed by media as the next Silicon Valley. Shenzhen offers free admission to over twenty public city parks such as People’s Park, Lianhuashan Park, Lizhi Park, Zhongshan Park, and Wutongshan Park. The Xianhu Botanical Garden is spread around the lake of the same name in the Luohu District on an area of 590 hectares. Shenzhen wheelchair access travel is superior to most other Chinese cities, largely as a result of the recent construction of so much of the city.
