Located just north of the island of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is famed
to be the first of China’s Special Economic Zones, being one of the
pivot points when it comes to finance, business, production, and
other industries. Even though it is home to 80 skyscrapers, it has
only been given a sub-provincial status, making it an ironic picture
of how prosperity can be attained in such small territories.
