Diwang

“Despite all the new high-rises, Diwang (Shunhing Plaza) is still my favorite skyscraper after all these years. Catch it lit by the sunset from Litchi Park, glistening emerald and feminine elegance. Hubei Village in nearby Dongmen is a peek into Shenzhen’s rural past, and miraculously still exists.” – DJ Quest
