Shekou's great for expats who want a nice apartment, lots of nearby Western restaurants and good international schools for their kids.

OCT (Overseas Chinese Town) is a classy neighborhood with lots of bike paths and parks. It also has a metro stop =)

Huanggang is so close to the Hongkong border that you can actually walk there. Not as impressive on first glance as Shekou and OCT, but it's an active Hongkong-style neighborhood 24/7.

Futian is by far the best, especially if you need to travel to Hong Kong regularly through the quieter Huanggang checkpoint rather than Luohu. There are lots of apartments up and down, left and right of the stop at Fumin; Ren Ren supermarket and yes, it buzzes 24 hours. Coco Park shopping/restaurants and bars are just a 73 bus ride away.

it really depends what you are looking for.
Luohu has all the best sleeze,
Futian is more sterile
Nanhan is kind of in between Luohu and Futian
and then there is Shekuo which has too many expats for my liking but has good food.

Futian is the best.  Everything you need and the most upscale western style neighborhoods in Shenzhen, smack dab in between everything.
This is where I am moving in a few weeks after staying in hotels all over Shenzhen for the past year and seeing it all.

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
