  • Address: Shekou Industrial Zone, Shenzhen, China 518000
Shekou is a small waterfront area located at the southern tip of Shenzhen. It faces Hong Kong’s Yuen Long across the water, which is only an hour away by ferry, and so many people choose to visit Shekou on a day trip from Hong Kong. Shekou is the primary expat hub of Shenzhen. The main attraction here is Sea World, a western­-style entertainment center built around the grounded Minghu ship in the bay. This boasts a 3D cinema, a four star hotel, a nightclub, a fully­equipped gym, and a strip of bars and cafes catering to tourists.

In fact there’s no shortage of cafes, bars, and nightclubs in the area, along with a number of high­-end hotels. There are also some skyscrapers of note, such as the China Merchants Tower, plus several parks to explore.

Practical Info

Many visitors who don’t need a visa to enter Hong Kong will almost certainly need one to enter mainland China, so be sure to check visa requirements before planning a trip to Shekou from Hong Kong. The customs and immigration process is completed upon disembarking the ferry.
