I'm from Shenzhen and we do need to apply for a special pass document (looks like a passport with your photo and info on it) for go to Hongkong. The first application will normally took 14 days and when you apply for the second time it took about a week. so it is not very convenient at all.

Did they Chinese government build most of the buildings? or were they private investors? if so, does the gov force them to have a special height? if they were private, I wander what was the incentive for companies to build huge skyscrapers in the middle of nowhere.

of course private investors, government only builds infrastrcutures, shenzhen has so many skyscrapers because at the time when shenzhen was growing it was a testing ground for capitalism, and thus many financial institutes was born there, and they also builds their huge headquarters in shenzhen, there are afew huge real estate company which was born in shenzhen and has assets of trillons of dollars. never underestimate chinese people, because the real estate companies they builds apartment like dozens of them per time, and shenzhen GDP this year was around 118billion usd, is a financial center, thats wt it should look like, and about the height, well with high land price and high demand, thats why u get tall buildings.

Real esate companies with billions or tens of billions of dollars sound realistic enough, trillions of dollars is like going over China's entire GDP

Shenzhen is not the middle of nowhere. It is about 45 minutes away from central Hong Kong by train. The furthest reaches of Hong Kong are basically right beside Shenzhen. Some people live in Shenzhen and commute to work and school in Hong Kong daily. Although they still need to pass through customs/immigration also.



Shenzhen is also part of the Pearl River Delta region, home to ~60 million people which is mostly centred in Guangdong Province. The combined economic output of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau makes it the fourth-largest economy in Asia after Japan, the Republic of Korea and India. Also keep in mind that the predominant form of housing is the highrise building. Shenzhen has over 10 million inhabitants.

i mean the company's asset, and i talking about chinese rmb, those big real estate company do have trillion in asset, like one called wanke, poly . and the GDP of china at the end of 2008 is around 40trillion usd, if to rmb is around 280trillion rmb.never underestimate China, in 2 years time it will be the second largest economy, just look at every chinese cities have so much high rise being build u can tell how powerful these real estate companies are, if u say the 10 billion worth companies, i think there are hunderds of them, GDP is output per year that doesnt mean the asset of China, just the financial asset of Beijing along from those big financial companies already has 260trillion rmb of asset. the banks in China are very powerful, think about chinese people habbit of saving their money in the bank, thats what u get, powerful banks = powerful real estate companies
