Chegongmiao Station

Judging from bus traffic the place is an important bus traffic hub

East Pacific Center towers rising to 309 and 284 meters which now dominate the area

Shennan Avenue. This perhaps should be named as the 'main' and the longest continuous street of Shenzhen, a continuous street under several different names (Bao'An Avenue, Shennan Avenue, Xinxiu Road) which stretches to about 60km throughout the urban core and surrounding urban districts of Shenzhen. For large part it is parallel to Shenzhen Metro Luobao Line

Shennan Avenue. The dominant tower on the right side of the photo is the new building of Shenzhen Stock Exchange designed by Rem Koolhaas. Quite a marvel if you ask me

Traffic on Shennan Avenue

That white-blue car on the top right is one of Shenzhen's several hundred all-electric taxis (BYD E6). BYD has also delivered 500 all-electric cars for Shenzhen police force. There are also some 200 all-electric public buses in Shenzhen. So I suppose it's fair to say that Shenzhen is a pioneering city in electric public transport vehicles. Let's hope this will soon become the mainstream

I think u know, shenzhen is the most beautiful city in the world. Amazing green, gardens, flowers, grass and trees. Unbelieveable skylines and the fatest speed grow up in the world. It is not about the old china, just about the new chinese. It will be famous in the future in the world, just need more time. Thanks you coming to shenzhen, I love shenzhen. It is the only city that I think better than western countries cities.

Many will disagree but from my point of view you are probably not very far from being right.

Shenzhen planners seemingly tried very hard to make a modern, beautiful and green (VERY green indeed. Perhaps more green than any other big city) city. And they seem to be succeeding.

A brief comeback to 'my' hood in SZ - OCT

Exit from Shennan Avenue to Qiaocheng East Road
image hosted on flickr


Qiaocheng East Road. An example of rather typical Shenzhen planning with a wide avenue and spacious sidewalk surrounded by lots of greenery. Shenzhen despite being fairly densely urbanized in core urban districts is typically spacious on the street level with adequate spaces for pedestrians and car traffic. Overall from my personal experience Shenzhen is much better planned, organized and overall more pleasant to walk around in comparison to Shanghai or Guangzhou in which I spent comparable amounts of time. It is probably no surprising given that Shenzhen is essentially built from scratch over the last 30 years which means that planners had more freedom to do what they had to do

Cars waiting at a red signal on Qiaocheng East Rd.

Some pretty exclusive stuff here
image hosted on flickr


OCT LOFT pedestrian area with restaurants, cafes and art galleries. It's pretty quiet during the daytime but gets busy in the evening when all the 'trendy' and 'cool' types come with their BMWs and Audis to spend the evening in what seems to have become one of the coolest places to be at in SZ. Mind you it was a factory zone a decade ago. It still looks like it because most of the factory buildings seem to have remained intact and even facades seem to have been untouched for the most part. I love the idea and give my respect to whoever initiated this development. Must be one of the finest conversion projects ever. The area feels really pleasant and cosy with some of that artsy bohemian touch. It feels weird that something like this has become one of THE places in a city that was started as an industrial zone... 30 years ago. Simply beautiful

Evening time in OCT. Traffic gets really heavy on the narrow streets and people start flocking in from all directions

Decaying facade of a former factory building. I love how the conversion of industrial buildings has been done without visual interference into the outside appearance of the buildings. It creates an impression of neglect and grit while at the same time you know that this is in fact one of the most hi-end and expensive locations in town

U know, it is so different from shanghai and beijing. It is not look like so 'chinese', I think it is the only city can show how is the new china. Now I live in sydney, I have been to china all big cities and US big cities, but I think shenzhen is the best. Please come again in 2015 or 2016. The new airport open in later this in shenzhen, the shape is amazing and so beautiful. Next year a new biggest and best shopping mall called' shenzhen center ' will open in futian cbd. In 2015 or 2016, u can see the finish futian cbd, the Ping An IFC will be the second tallest building in the world. And Qianhai water city develop is start this year. Come again after 2 years or 3 years, u will see a new shenzhen, lol !

I'm not a Chinese, but I've been to many large cities around the world. And I also believe Shenzhen will become the most beautiful city in the world within a decade, when all the building construction will be over. It will have the largest skyline in the world with the greenest cityscape. True urban paradise

Welcome to SZ again in the future. I moved from San Francisco->Beijing->Shenzhen, where I grew up. It is indeed the most beautiful city in China IMO.
