More Tourists Flocked to Dapeng New Area during the Holidays
During the three day May Day holiday tourists have flocked at the Dapeng New Area in eastern Shenzhen based on official statistics. Dapeng New Area has the best scenic coastlines, ancient fortress, national geological park and majestic mountains. These attractions have drawn more than 260,000 holiday makers that consist of families and friends.
Even with traffic jams on roads going there, tourists were determined to spend their holidays in a place that is away from downtown Shenzhen. One Nanshan resident said that he and his friends spent three hours driving to Dapeng just to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful coastal views and eat fresh seafood.
Now residents who used to spend their holidays in Xiaomeisha or in Dameisha in Yantian eastern Shenzhen are spending their holidays at the more eastern side of Dapeng to avoid the large crowd that flock to Yantian’s beaches during the holidays. Also during the three day holiday the six major tourist attractions in the city were visited by more than 440,000 tourists and as for Window of the World, Shenzhen’s signature tourist park saw more than 100,000 visitors during the holiday.
