Border city offers a convenient excursion from Hong Kong
The gleaming high-rises and five-star hotels of Futian in Shenzhen show how the district has become the southern city’s economic centre. Throw in its proximity to Hong Kong, multinational companies, a convention and exhibition centre and Futian’s status as home for the new Shenzhen Stock Exchange building, then it appears the district’s prestige is complete. Beyond the business districts, however, more venues are coming online for groups seeking alternatives to the normality of downtown Shenzhen.
Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai, which opened in December 2013, is one such option. It is strategically located 30 minutes from Hong Kong International Airport, with the border just across from Shenzhen Bay, and 40 minutes from Shenzhen International Airport. The hotel has meeting rooms spread across two floors and space for 500 on its third-level roof garden.
A 15-minute drive from Shenzhen Bao-an International Airport is the Hilton Garden Inn Shenzhen
Bao-an, which forms part of a large commercial centre. All five of the meeting rooms have ceilings at 4.2m.
Back in Futian, the 352-room The Langham, Shenzhen is one of the newer properties competing with other luxury international brands in the city.
