Shenzhen is a modern financial and commercial metropolis in China; however, it lacks the history and natural beauties which attract visitors to many of the other big cities. In recent years the city has compensated by developing excellent theme parks and man-made scenic spots. These modern facilities have succeeded in drawing in crowds of tourists, eager to check out the contemporary attractions.

Window of the World, a theme-park near to Shenzhen Bay, is one of the highlights of the city. The park displays miniature versions of more than 130 world famous sites, from each of the five continents. Here you are able to visit many of the world's great landmarks in just one day. Of course, since you are in China, you will also want to explore some of China's most well-known sites. Splendid China - China Folk Culture Villages is a special destination built in Shenzhen to introduce you many interesting aspects of China's culture and scenery. The district of the Splendid China features miniature replicas of famous Chinese historical sites and charming natural beauties. China Folk Culture Villages will introduce you to the cultures of the many Chinese ethnic groups. Its highlights include life-sized examples of distinctive buildings from each group, as well as rich ethnic performances.

Happy Valley (Happy Kingdom), which is near to the Window of the World, is the largest theme park in the park and consists of nine major projects, including a Spanish Square, Cartoon City, the Adventure Hill, and the Maya Water Park. While at Happy Valley, you can join in the many exciting games and enjoy a variety of excellent performances which cater to both children and adults. Happy Valley is a full service park, providing visitors with everything from sightseeing, entertainment, catering and accommodations, to shopping.

Besides, there are still many tings to do and places to visit in the city. Among of them, the Xianhu Botanical Garden, the Safari Park, Da Meisha and Xiao Meisha Scenic Area (two excellent bathing beaches), and Meridian View Center (also called the window of Shenzhen) are highly recommended. Moreover, Xili Lake Resort endowed with enchanting natural view offers a quiet place for citizens to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Walk to south east about 500m to take subway line 2 from Dong Jiaotou Station to Jingtian Station, transfer here to take subway line 9 to Margin Ridge Station. Then walk out of Exit B and walk to east about 400m, you will get there.

Sorry to tell you that you can’t back to SZ in that case; however, you may try to apply for the Visa on Arrival at the border. Then you may get into the city again.

If you will go to HK airport, you are suggested to take a ferry at Shekou Port to Sky Pier, there are 13 available ferries a day from 7:45 to 20:15, and it takes CNY270 and 30 minutes.
If you will go to the downtown HK, there are 8 available ferries to HK-Macau Ferry Terminal from 7:45 to 18:15, and it takes CNY120 and 1h 10 minutes.

Oh, passport holders are exempt from visa for 90 days in HK, so no visa is needed for a short trip there.

For Shenzhen WOW, Splendid China Folk Village and Happy Valley,
do senior citizens from overseas need to pay entrance fees for these 3 attractions?
If so, how much?

At WOW, the full ticket is CNY 200. Seniors aged 65 to 69 pay half price, and seniors aged 70 or above can visit free. But they need to show their passports.

At Splendid China, seniors pay full price of CNY 180.

At Happy Valley, seniors pay full price of CNY 230. :)

I am afraid that there is no direct flight. You may fly to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, or Bangkok, and then fly to SZ.

There are many places of interest in the city, such as Window of the World, Happy Valley, Spendid China, and Xiaomeisha Sea World. :)
