Hotel at a glance
Greenery abounds at the GENZON golfing grounds and its 36-hole escapade for lovers of the beautiful game, courtesy of an environmentally-friendly ‘platinum grass’ turf that also extends into a 55,000sqm driving range for practice chips and putts. Those unwilling to break a sweat remain in the cool comforts of the hotel’s contemporary interiors where a spa experience awaits, or take in the view of pristine mountains from a dip in the seasonal outdoor lagoon. While most of Shenzhen awaits discovery via the swift steeds at the Jixiang Metro Station only five minutes away, avoid awakening hunger pangs with Rongyue Restaurant’s homegrown Cantonese cuisine, or sample a different side of Asia at Ohashi Japanese Restaurant. Homebodies avoid missing out on picture-taking opportunities with strolls to the bamboo pavilions that lie spread out across lotus-strewn waters filled with lively carp, the resurrected bones of an ancient Hui mansion, and the gentle Zen of stone gardens designed by the award-winning Japanese architect, Ohashi.

Shenzhen, Guangdong: What to see and do
A relatively-unknown city in Guangdong until its meteoric rise as one of the base of Apple’s iPad shipments (the Shenzhen manufacturing plant delivers direct to the United States), the former fishing village was not a destination known for shopping or sightseeing pursuits. Instead, one of China’s five designated areas for Special Economic Zones is a highlight for business people, investors, and migrant workers seeking their fortune. Harvesting the ingenuity of Deng Xiaoping (the People’s Republic of China leader in the 1970s’) a few years later, metropolitan Shenzhen now boasts a skyline of skyscrapers, appointed greenbelt areas, and protected cultural relic sites.
Join the locals in their weekly diversions at one of the 20 public parks as you stroll past families participating in communal aerobics, ballroom Tango, or belly dances. A great way to see the community in their most authentic form, your park adventures can also make way for an impromptu therapeutic laughter class or kite-flying in the autumn. Alternatively, see everything before dinner time as you travel to the global village theme park of Window of the World. An amusement distraction made up of 480,000sqm of miniaturised icons of the Eiffel Tower, Mount Rushmore, Taj Mahal, the Leaning Tower, and Dutch tulip landscapes, one of the touristic destination of the city volunteers to end your day with an elaborate dance-and-drama show of Eqyptian handmaidens, Flamenco dancers, and 1940s’ Broadway-tapping New Yorkers.
