Voice of Travelers to Shenzhen

Taking a break from work

Hi my name is Daniel. I planned a trip to Shenzhen on my own as I needed a break from work and daily routines. I went ahead and got an air ticket from online websites which display ticket prices. The travel agencies had different ticket rates so I ended up choosing an online website which has the least ticket cost. I had an incredible time in Shenzhen. The people were friendly and I blended in almost perfectly with my fluency in the local language. The ticket on return was by China Eastern Airlines. I wish I had acquired the ticket from Air Asia who had better services in my view.

Visit to Shenzhen with my wife
