**Itinerary valid from April 1st, 2014
On your full-day tour, you guide picks you up from your Hong Kong hotel and takes you to the railway station where you’ll board a train for the 1-hour journey into Shenzhen. Upon arrival, embark on a city sightseeing tour, including a stop for great photo ops at the Window of the World. At this replica park, you'll find miniatures of the world's historical and architectural wonders on display, from Angkor Wat to the Eiffel Tower.
Next, head over to the Terracotta Warriors Exhibition to view this riveting collection of sculptures originally buried in a mausoleum near Xi'an. The figures depicting the army of Emperor Qin, the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty (221-207 BC), were buried with him to guard his empire in the afterlife, and some of them were shipped to Shenzhen for exhibition purposes.
If time allows, test your bargaining skills at a silk factory outlet, where you will find a variety of stunning products available for purchase.
Enjoy a delicious Chinese lunch before your guide accompanies you to the Shenzhen Museum where you’ll tour exhibits on the natural and cultural history of Shenzhen. See lifelike dioramas of folk culture; pore over fossils and natural specimen collections; and view pottery and cultural relics on display. Learn about Shenzhen through the ages, from the Neolithic Age to the Qing Dynasty, in this state-of-the-art building.
Then start your shopping extravaganza with free time to explore some of the 1,500 shops at the Lo Wu Commercial Shopping Mall. You’ll have 2.5 hours to browse throughout this five-story glass building. Find everything you've ever imagined including watches, handbags, shoes, electronics, clothes and much more!
After your shopping spree, travel by first-class train back to Hong Kong with drop-off at your hotel.
