Photos from Dapeng Fortress in Shenzhen

Last week I visited an ancient Dapeng Fortress and I have to say it’s a must see destination in Shenzhen. I recommend to take a slower bus from Shenzhen to Dapeng, it will offer amazing views to the sea (For example bus number m362 at 罗湖医院站). From the last stop you can take a tuk tuk for 10RMB that takes you to the village.

  • Thanks for the tour of Dapeng. Some great pictures. I like the ancient street scene with old houses and the red couplets pasted on the doors and the fierce looking posters of Guan Gong on the door to frighten away demons.

    I like the little boy with the sugar cane reminds me of me when I was really little and in China.

    Sigh…

    For me it’s amazing to think that everything I see is real and not from some history book. Everything is out there are people are living it. It may sound stupid, but it feels great to see this all with my own eyes, because back in Finland I had to rely to my books and documentaries.

    In Guanlan I used to live in a house like this for about 4 months, with a smal bamboo grove and mango trees just around the corner :)

    It’s nice that I can show a different side of Shenzhen to people who see it as a modern city :)
