What is your review of Shenzhen, China?

QA問答:你對中國深圳有何評價?



回答一

Kateryna Tomchuk, experienced traveler, lived and worked in China for 1 year
To say honestly, I wasn’t really impressed with Shenzhen when I arrived.

說實話,我剛到深圳的時候,對深圳的印象不是很好。

Moreover, I was slightly scared, disappointed and frustrated - everything but being delighted!

而且,我有點害怕、失望和沮喪——什么感受都有,就是沒有好心情!

Please understand me: I was expecting a city like Hong Kong but on the mainland. Arriving in Hong Kong and spend a week there, absolutely fall in love with its freedom, style and futuristic views - wasn’t a good idea before moving to live in Shenzhen.

請理解我:我期待的是一個像香港,但在大陸的城市。抵達香港并在那里呆上一周,完全愛上了它的自由、風格和未來觀——在搬到深圳居住之前,這不是一個好主意。


I pass all the controls… and going out at the Luohu railway station I realised that yeap - it’s not Hong Kong. AT ALL

我通過了所有的控制……走出羅湖火車站,我意識到,是的,這不是香港。完全不是。

Afterwards, all the bad feelings just increased, I can’t get used to this city: but nothing was going to be changed, I had my visa for 1 year and that meant I have to be there.

后來,所有的負面情緒都在增加,我無法適應這個城市:但什么都不會改變,我的簽證有效期是一年,這意味著我必須呆在那里。


But when I shifted into another job and started to travel more in Shenzhen - I was kinda…
WOWWW!!!

但當我換了另一份工作,開始更多地在深圳旅行時——我有點……
臥槽?。?!

Is this a city I was living for already 4 months?!
Is it the same city?
And I started absolutely falling in love with it.

這是我已經住了4個月的城市嗎?!
是同一個城市嗎?
我完全愛上了它。

Want to swim and have beach vacay? - Here you are
Want to sit in the time machine and be a BladeRunner character? - Here you are

想坐在時光機器里成為銀翼殺手嗎?安排!
想要參觀典型的中國地方,感受中國所有的氣氛嗎?安排!

And my love to this city got deeper and deeper when I started travelling around China.

當我開始環游中國時,我對這座城市的愛越來越深。

I was visiting many and many small cities in the Guandong province (in almost all of them). And I was travelling a lot: from Xiamen and Quanzhou on the east till Wuhan and Guilin on the North.

我到訪了廣東省的許多小城市(幾乎所有的城市)。我去過很多地方:從東邊的廈門和泉州,一直到北邊的武漢和桂林。
