Dapeng Peninsula – Shenzhen, China


I have been in Shenzhen for the longest time and I’m always faced with bad pollution and congestion in the city. Never knew this Dapeng Peninsula really exist within Shenzhen! Partly also because I don’t have a car here. If I do, I’ll be venturing to look for chill out spots and of course, food. 🙂 Dapeng Peninsula is situated along the coast east side of Shenzhen, within Longgang District. A fishing village, their attraction is the fortress that was built in the year 1394 to protect the village from pirates. The trip there from the city is around 2 hours by car. Don’t bother by public bus, you’ll die inside the bus, more than 3 hours and can’t go many places! My friend Ron told me about this place and decided to visit that place on my birthday and so we had about 5 of us, rented a MPV and off we went!

On our way there, through the tunnels!

There are a lot more pictures which I didn’t load here but you can view them on my Facebook album http://on.fb.me/1nmyxpB. Yeah loads of food pictures there too. We were basically eating, walking, eating, walking, etc… Lovely day out, although very tired but was fun. You too can check out this place! Definitely a change from the usual polluted city life! ;P

Tips: Watch out for tourists traps along the seafood street. Compare prices first and make sure you see them weighing your seafood.

Have fun guys!

Gastronomically yours,

Big Roy
