Shenzhen (Chinese: 深圳) is a city in Southern China in the Guangdong province. It is just north of Hong Kong. It has a subtropical climate.

Until recently, Shenzhen was a fishing village with just over 30,000 people. In 1980, under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping, Shenzhen became one of China's Special Economic Zones (SEZ). Since then, its population has grown to about 10.6 million people.[1]
