Shenzhen Expat Events

Make the most of your Shenzhen Expat Life

the economically fastest-growing city in China offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like Window of the World, a collection of replicas of world sights and landmarks, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of China’s Qingming Festival, up to getting a taste of traditional Peking duck & hot pot. The InterNations community helps you as an Shenzhen expat to enjoy your expat stay in China to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Shenzhen and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺWhere can I take a crash course in Chinese writing?ʺ up to ʺIs the smog in cities like Beijing or Shanghai a serious health risk?ʺ.
