SHENZHEN - A Day Trip [6] Above the City Looking at 27 Years

In the previous part Part 5 I showed a series of photos from the Shun Hing Square observation deck, which started with views towards the west, then south showing Hong Kong's countryside, and finally east. Now I continue that series with views looking east, then north, and finally back to the Futian view westwards.





















Shenzhen's development is quite impressive given economic reforms only started in the 1980s. A sea of skyscrapers now cover the landscape.













It costs RMB 60 to go up the 69th floor observation deck.







































Lonely building



I've heard of another observation deck in Shenzhen, but have yet to confirm the location. Hopefully it is far enough away to give a different view of the city.
