Due to the outbreak of H1N1 that happened in April 09, I wasn’t really able to travel to the north during my trip. Sis didn’t want to disappoint me and signed us up for a day trip at Shen Zhen 东部华侨城 – a newly established tourism spot. If you are travelling to ShenZhen, you can void the Window of world, Culture centre… but never miss out this new tourism spot.
Shen Zhen 东部华侨城 has 3 major themes: the Knight Valley (大峡谷), Tea Stream Valley （茶溪谷）and Wind Valley（云海谷）. And… there is a huge Status of Guanyin Sitting in a Lotus Throne in this theme
Knight Valley (大峡谷) possesses the feature of Eco Park and theme park. It has 8 main areas namely Firth Forest （峡湾森林）, Wine Town, Central Hub, Discovery Adventure, Earth Core’s Adventure, Future Adventure, Ocean Adventure and Peak Tribe in the Cloud (云海高地).
Tea Stream Valley includes 4 zones namely Interlaken Town (茵特拉根小镇), Tea Ancient Town （茶翁古镇）, Sanzhou Tea Garden （三洲茶园）, and Wetland Garden (湿地花园)
If you think you cannot cover all the hot spots in one day, you can always stay overnight at the resort hotels in Interlaken Town. Besides that, you can always pamper yourself a session of beauty spa available.

After walking pass the entrance, you can opt to walk over the ‘bamboo forest’- staircase or opt for the man made escalators to reach the top. Since we chose to walk, I do not have any photos on the long manmade escalators to the man made waterfall. It was a bad weather on my visit to this tourism spot. The weather was freezing cold; it was raining and I was drenched from top to toe throughout the day. It was summer at that time but I had to wear long sleeve tee, sis was on cardigan and we both were on scarves. Add on the umbrellas with us. Huuuuh…
Here, I wish to share up some photos on the trip I had.
Walk over for a ride of cable car
Fogggggy + cold + wet. Trust me; I do not edit any of these photos. It is as though I was walking to………… @@
Mimic the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Dare yourself you walk on it.
Headed to Zen’s Fairyland.
无量云梯 with 108 stairs…
Show your sincerity and bai-bai
Took a train to Interlaken Town – a town full with European buildings where you may find the elegant resort hotel, spa center, theater here.
Since we were on tour, lunch was included. However… it was not yummy at all. But I love their fat round QQ rice. It rice is sweet and lovely. I finished them all :)
Giant pumpkins, at the weight of 100kg each (if I am not mistaken)
Dinner was slightly simple for us. We chose to dine in a Taiwanese chinese fast food restaurant – Blue&While 蓝&白.
First was the cold dish; Raw and crunchy shredded potatoes tossed in the appetizing sourish sauce.
A kind of bean with pork knuckles.
Besides this, we ordered few other dishes. The price for vege dishes range from RMB 4 to 6 while the meaty dishes are about RMB 8 or above each.
Finally, you can opt for rice or porridge. You can eat as much as you can as refills are FOC
If you wish for a quick meal, you can always choose to dine in Blue&White. It is cheap, fast and convenient to have a meal here.
