Description

Discover Dapeng Ancient Town, the Crane Hakka Museum, Dafen Painted-Village and the Dongmen Shopping Mall on a full day private tour.

You will meet your guide in the lobby of your Shenzhen hotel at about 08:30am and begin to take your Shenzhen tour from here. Your first thing today is to discover the Dapeng Ancient Fort an exceptionally well preserved Ming Dynasty fortification first built in 1394. The purpose of the Dapeng Fort was to protect the approaches to the Pearl River mainly from pirates, but later the fort developed into a small town and today provides an excellent example of a fortified Ming Dynasty township.

Continue to your visit to the Crane Hakka Museum(He Jia Xin Ju) which was built and completed by Luo families in the year of 1817(Qing Dynasty). The museum covers an area of 24,816 square meters with building area of 14,530 square meters. With holding several hundreds of rooms, the whole building complex was like a maze which was composed of inside and outside shaped like two squares. It is of great significance to study Hakka’s folk-custom, culture, patriarchal system and family spirit. Your lunch will be served at a Hakka’s restaurant with Hakka cuisine style.

After lunch, transfer you to Dafen Oil Painting Village where more than 600 galleries are established there and as many as 2,000 painters live on export of oil painting. Drive you to Dongmen Shopping Street before transfer you back to your Shenzhen hotel.
