Shenzhen is situated in Guangdong Province adjacent to Hong Kong. It is approximately 100 kilometres (62 mi) south of China's third-largest city, Guangzhou.
Shenzhen has a humid subtropical climate and summers are hot and wet (the monsoon season lasts from April to September) and winters are relatively mild and dry. There are about 14 million residents in Shenzhen and Cantonese is the first language for about half of these residents while the other half speak mainly Mandarin. In recent years, the city has developed a more cosmopolitan appearance with new shopping plazas, high rise buildings, a modern metro system and landscaped parks and road sides. It's a busy, lively city but parts of the cities have charm with restored churches, buildings and private residences. Having an international airport and being so close to Hong Kong opens up a world of travel opportunities from short weekend trips to longer treks around Asia in the holidays. Shenzhen really is the perfect place to base yourself in Asia!
