Prompt, please, where there is karting in Shenzhen? I slyshada, that in the area of Wild Park, но я его весь обошла и не нашла 🙁
Hope, we ourselves would be glad to try, when we are in SHZH next time. About Wild Park have not heard too. Quick search gives a couple of addresses – рядом с метро Xiangmihu (Hongli Road, Futian District, Shenzhen Honey Lake North (Honey Lake Casino big door)- its address) and another in Shajing (Bao'an District of Shenzhen City on the streets of South Road, Huangpu). We have not been there, but can someone was out of our. Ask in Shenzhen groups in the VC and then tell all the details, if you go there. 😉
Что то я припозднилась 🙁 Не до отдыха было 🙁
Сегодня съездили в Shajing
I really liked it.
Prices 80 сил карт 90 RMB за 10 min, 100 сил 200.
Машинки хорошие. Очередь живая, заранее не записаться 🙁 Комбинезоны не дают, but 30 юаней дают в аренду :))
The track is not very complicated, but at the first sharp turn I spun on 360, continue to be cautious!
Overall – all right, I strongly advise, adds adrenaline.
For one thing, Biden does not see this place and leads to closer 1 km. So keep in mind and look at the map on the site. The club in the back of the hearse, but hangs a large poster!
Hope, Thank you very much, sharing information! Let us know, that karting in Shajing bad. 🙂
Thanks for the article! I would like to learn more For dinner KK100. What would climb 99 floor in pitsiriyu, an additional fee shall be charged?
Чтобы посетить смотровую площадку в кк100 нужно приобрести входной билет. Его стоимость 230 yuan. Но по своей сути это является депозитом для кафе что находится на 100м этаже (не знаю как для ресторана на 99).
Цены в кафе дорогие так что этот депозит разойдется очень быстро.
На город можно полюбоваться с 96го этажа.
Рекомендую для посещения вечернее время. Тогда весь город погружаешься в огни.
Vitali, спасибо за актуальные цены и совет по посещению КК100. Yes, evening, it's just, есть на что посмотреть.
Очень познавательная статья . Thank you
Есть вопрос , есть ли там зоопарк или место где можнл посмотреть , погладить , покормить панд ?!?
Victor, thanks for the review. Зоопарк в ШЖ есть, и даже не один, As far as I remember. В них мы не добрались, но панды там должны быть. Смотрите здесь: shenzhenzoo
Поподробней про вещевой рынок можно?, мы в шеньчжене сейчас хотим съездить завтра
Maria, извините, что поздно дошли до комментариев. Если вы выйдете на Laojie в выходной день, то с толпой народа не промахнетесь мимо кучи моллов, маленьких лавок, длинных галерей с огромным количеством разнообразной одежды. Надо просто погулять в районе этой станции, вы найдёте то, что нужно.
А подскажите/пригласите, please, в русскоязычную группу Шенженя в вичате. Я недавно переехал в этот город и хотелось бы влиться в местную тусовку =)
Богдан, добавьте меня в вичате. Я вас приглашу в группу, которая у меня есть. Мой вичат айди Olya_Stones
Офигенная статья. Спасибо за ваш труд!
Hey there! В ШЖ есть банджи джампинг?
Мы летим транзитом через Шенчжень в Бангкок, будем там 19 ч ))) чтобы выйти в город нужно визу оформлять?
Good afternoon, Eugene! Шэньчжэнь пока что не входит в список городов, доступных для безвизового 72 часового транзита, поэтому для такой пересадки с выходом в город китайская виза будет нужна.
Prompt, please, Контакты ребят, которые водят в трекинг туры
