Day 2 Departure from Shenzhen
A private one-day city tour will be arranged for you to enjoy the Splendid China - Folk Culture Villages. Covering an area of about 74 acres on the bank of Shenzhen Bay, the Splendid China is the most comprehensive and the largest miniature park of China. The whole park looks like a large China map, on which there are 82 miniatures of the famous Chinese attractions positioned in a ratio of 1:15. All of these attractions could be divided into three categories including ancient buildings, mountains and rivers as well as folk customs and residences. You will find the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Forbidden City, Huangshan Mountain, Huangguoshu Waterfall, Li River and classical gardens in Suzhou. What's more, over 50,000 miniature human beings are set in these attractions which pretend to practise the emperor's wedding and the royal sacrificial ceremonies in ancient China. 

To the west of the Splendid China, there is the Folk-Custom Village where you could experience the various kinds of cultures of the 56 ethnic groups in China. Here, 25 villages of 22 groups were replicated in a ratio of 1:1 and villagers all dress in colorful national costumes. The characteristic folk festivals will also be celebrated monthly such as the Water-splashing Festival of Dai group and the Torch Festival of Yi group. As the private one-day tour ends, our guide will transfer you to airport and help you board on the departure flight. Wish you a pleasant trip!

As a Malaysian citizen, you are eligible only if you have been granted a Chinese visa previously. In that case, bring the passport with the mentioned visa with you. Here I have to add a detail... According to some reports, Malaysian citizens can now get Shenzhen VOA even without the above mentioned condition, but really I cannot confirm that.

Daytrip to Shenzhen from Hongkong - Visa on Arrival or 24h Transit Visa?
I have a German passport and plan to fly in and out of Hongkong in June (from Germany). From Hongkong I need to visit Shenzhen for a business trip for half a day and then return to Hongkong before flying home. Do I need a Visa-On-Arrival when I go to Shenzhen or will a 24-hour Transit Visa also work? What would be the typical waiting time for such a visa at the Shenzen border?

You will have to apply for Shenzhen visa on arrival because there is no other option that you reach Shenzhen directly from Hong Kong. This is not such a problem because there are several border crossings eligible for issuing VOA and in your case the most practical are: Luohu (Lo Wu), Huanggang and Shekou port. The first one is the most frequented because you can reach it by local train and after you enter mainland China, by metro. The second one is practical if using cross-border direct buses and the third if you prefer to take a ferry from Hong Kong to Shenzhen. Waiting time depends upon the number of visa applicants and honestly speaking, it's hard to predict the waiting time, although usual waiting time is somewhere between 10 and 30 minutes.

It appears that Chinese authorities have introduced the policy of eligibilty for Shenzhen VOA that is almost equal to that applied for 72/144 hours visa free transit as far es eligible countries are concerned:

24 Schengen Agreement Countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland

15 Other European Countries: Russia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia (FYROM), Albania, Belarus, Monaco

6 American Countries: the United States, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile

2 Oceania Countries: Australia, New Zealand

6 Asian Countries: Korea, Japan, Singapore, Brunei, United Arab Emirates, Qatar

So, I would not recommend to Indian citizens wasting of time in trying to obtain Shenzhen VOA.

By the way, it is not possible to visit Dongguan and Mission Hills using Shenzhen VOA because Mission Hills as part of Dongguan is outside of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone.

how about visit Shenzhen for one day, can I apply Shenzhen visa at Luo Hu border?

If you enter Shenzhen from Luohu port, you can apply for a visa on arrival at the port for a stay of no more than five days. And you need to bring your passport and fill in the application form directly at the port. When you return to Hong Kong and fly from Hong Kong to US with a stopover in Beijing, you can apply for a 144-hour transit visa exemption at Beijing airport. Hope it helps!
