Presumably as a traveller, you've seen such sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Pyramids so avoid Windows of the World at all costs. You can get a great view of the city from its tallest building, the Diwang mansion (dacha), where you can ride the lift up one of its twin towers and get an overview of the city's growth as the country's first economic development zone when China first opened up to the outside world in the late 1970s. Contrast that with the nearby Shenzhen Museum which has some gruesome pictures of Britain's impact on the region during the Opium Wars.
If you're into football, Shenzhen play regularly in the Chinese Super League, though they're well past their best when they won it in its first year.
For a nautical flavour head out to Nanshan and the moored up former cruise vessel at Sea World or north-east to the yacht club at Longcheer, home of the China Cup International Regatta.
There are loads of malls for shopping and restaurants of all flavours and a brand spanking new metro to get you around...lots of green parks and spaces to relax in, and the new Universiade venues to admire. It's a great, young, fun city.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
