Autumn

Shenzhen weather in autumn from November to early January is dry and cool. The temperature won't drop until December and it still remains around 20 C (68 F). Autumn droughts of varying degrees happens almost every year because of less rain and large evaporation. A long-sleeved T-shirt and a light overcoat are enough for this season.

According to forest, it may be 22-29C with cloud in the following week. So you are suggested to wear a thin shirt besides the dress.
Don’t worry about the safety problem, the people are friendly.
As for city trains, of course you can take it. If you will stay there for a long time, you can also buy a transport card.
