Description

Hi, I'm Timo, I worked in Hong Kong and Shenzhen for 5 years. I hold both Engineering and Finance Degrees. During daytime, I am some kind of lame manager who work for the IPO progress of companies. And at spare time, I am a professional traveller and guide with passion and kindness. I like both cities I lived in, not only because their successful and pretty surface, but also the eternal spirit of them. For example, Shenzhen's Luo Hu and Fu Tian Area are the most bustling part of the city. And of course, under the surface there is legendary story and history. When you stand on the Plaza of Citizens, you hardly believe only 40 years ago, it was just wild field and lakes as what the name indicates. If you want to hear something deep or if you are really interested about the city which one day must be told in human's history, come with me and step into the time machine and let's go backwards to the last century. We will start from the Port of Luo Hu where the story of Shenzhen begins. We'll see buldings that shocked the whole nation once upon a time, enjoy the beautiful skyline view along with the tales from the past. We'll visit Hua Qiang District, wander the streets where each square meter may creat value of millions a day and has the most expoensive lease price in China. We'll discover traces of companys, entrepreneurs and famous people. We'll hike on a park and hill (not so high) to get a bird eye view of the axis of the city. As well as history, we will discover the connects between Shenzhen and Hong Kong or Beijing so you'll understand the current political situation today. By the end of this tour you will fully understand how the city has developed only 40 years into the global phenomenon it is today. Along the way we will stop to get a delicious snack in some traditional and local restaurants, depends on weather and time. Want to touch upon wanderlust, the romance, exploration and adventure that travel is all about? This is the tour you've been waiting for! *The Tour will be given in English.
