A Boom City story - Shenzhen

[Source From: http://www.tongz.net/life/bulletin.asp?BAutoID=486]

25年前.荒芜的深圳 {Shenzhen at 25 years before}


终于有了人烟 {some people was moving in}


楼多了几个,人也多了起来 {more and more buliding and people in Shenzhen}


可是还是很荒芜 {but it was still being desolate}


就要修深南大道了 {Shennan avenue was under construction}


深南大道出现了,不过还是土路 {the oriented Shennan avenue appeared}


深南大道更像样了,还铺上了柏油 {Shennan avenue was improved}


这时的深圳还像一个破破烂烂的小县城 {Shenzhen still looked like a small town}


深圳的速度,一天一个样,带动了城市的全面发展 {"Shenzhen Speed" made Shenzhen different everyday}


杂闹的市区,逐渐出现了城市的面貌 {Messy City appeared}


经济进一步高速发展,高楼大厦也一栋栋拔起,快速赶上了各大城市 (Catching up the big cities in China)


经济迅速发展的深圳,吸引了全国各地大量人口的涌入 {rapidly development attracted a lot of people flowed in Shenzhen from every part of China)

此时的深圳就像开锅的工地 (Shenzhen continued to develop}


一个现代特大都市的雏形已显 (the figure of Modern City}


当时候的深圳就是罗湖,罗湖就是深圳,当时没有地王大厦的罗湖.
(Luohu district without "Shun Hing Square"}


这时的深圳已经不满足于罗湖了,开始沿着深南大道向西扩张,所到之处便带来了新的生机~!! {Shenzhen was expanding}


高楼大厦日益密集的深圳已经在全国暂露头角,开始咄咄逼人 {Shenzhen was booming}


高楼拨起 (Skyscraper city Shenzhen}


1996年地王大厦建成,成为当时中国最高的大楼,也是深圳的标志!
{"Shun Hing Square" was completed that was/is a landmark of Shenzhen and Tallest skyscraper in Asia in 1996}


10年前,这里便成了深圳的金融区 {financial center of Shenzhen at 10 years ago}


10年前繁华的深圳 {10 years ago, Shenzhen}


经济继续发展的深圳,沿着深南大道继续繁华的深圳 {Vibra Shenzhen}


10年前的深圳,已经开始变的漂亮了
{10 years ago, Shenzhen has started to become a beautiful city}


the other landmark of Shenzhen appeared, it is a 2nd tallest skyscraper in SZ - SEG Plaza...


进入21世纪的深圳 (Shenzhen in 21st Century}

Truly a success story. I just notice that a lot of Shenzhen's tourist guides speak Filipino even though they are Chinese.

Shenzhen indeed is a remarkable transformation story, although somewhat overshadowed by Shanghai's rapid rise. I find Shanghai's metamorphosis to be more dramatic although Shenzhen's growth from rice paddies to today's metropolis is amazing nevertheless .

I think a small reason on Shenzhen's boom is because it's right next to HK. There are some mainlanders who settled in Shenzhen and visit HK during the weekends. There are some who work in HK and live in Shenzhen or vice versa.

Shenzhen from Hong Kong

No, I do not often go to Hk, it is about half year once... I have been to Hk about 10 times only during these few years... My latest visit was before this Chinese New Year...

I know it's none of my business

but I should say:
"shoping in HongKong is a really good experience. Most of my friends buy their notebook in HongKong."

Yea, It is much cheaper than buying it from mainland, Mine was bought from Hk as well... but the price differential will be much narrower near soon... even it may be cheaper later on..
