Dapeng Ancient City was built during the rule of Emperor Ming Hongwu, and served as a defensive military fortress for South China during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Shenzhen's nickname, "Pengcheng," comes from this city. Many well-known military generals were produced here during the Ming Dynasty, including Liu Zhong, and five generals from three generations of the Lai family, giving the village its nickname, "General Village". Dapeng City has perfectly preserved city gates, castle towers, ancient streets and ancient homes, as well as the opportunity to see a selection of cultural and military-related relics related to the defense of the coast. It is a great place to learn about and bask in military history.

Located not far from Shenzhen, China is Dapeng Fortress. It is interesting to see how the buildings used to be constructed. So small and close together. It is becoming more tourist oriented so it is best to go now while you can still capture some of the authenticity. #merrychristmas
Dapeng City, feel the folk customs
Dapeng City, was built in the 27th year of Ming Hongwu, covering an area of about 110,000 square meters. It is a coastal defense military fortress in the south of China in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It has a history of resisting foreigners for more than 600 years. A number of outstanding national heroes such as Lai Sijue, Liu Qilong and Liu Hezi emerged. Shenzhen is now known as Pengcheng. . In 1995, Dapeng City was designated as Shenzhen Patriotism Education Base; on June 25, 2001, Dapeng City was announced by the State Council as National Key Cultural Relics Protection Unit; on October 8, 2003, Pengcheng Village, where Pengcheng City is located, was announced by the Ministry of Construction and the State Administration of Cultural Heritage as Chinese historical and cultural village; on June 28, 2004, Dapeng City was named the first of the eight scenic spots in Shenzhen.
There is no charge for entering the city. It is not expensive to go to the city wall and some old sites to get tickets, 20 yuan pass. Although the city is small and not as attractive as other ancient cities, Shenzhen is named Pengcheng because of its influence. And this is a complete ancient city. Most of the villagers in the ancient town have moved out, but some villagers still live in their ancestral homes, so we can also feel some local folk customs. If it is not for the holidays, there should be no more tourists. Walking in the small streets and alleys of the ancient town, it feels good.
Shenzhen Dapeng City was once a military fortress and a historical city; it is a quaint residential house and one of the hearts. This is the city of Dapeng, the first of the "Shenzhen Eight Views", the "Wulingyuan" in the downtown area, and the tranquility among the hustle and bustle. Historically, many outstanding military talents have emerged in the city of Dapeng, and the most famous ones belong to General Zhenwei and General Liu Qilong. Stepping into the generals, although it is not the same as before, people go to the sky, but when they think about it, the generals are bloody on the battlefield, and the spirit of defending the country is still echoing in the mind for a long time. For the city of historical fortress, Dapeng City naturally lacks a rich historical and cultural heritage. In the ancient city, the remains of the smoke pier, the castle tower and the Tianhou Palace are still visible. Although the ruins of the historical annual rings have long since disappeared, they are no longer the glory of the past, but it is not the best witness of historical changes. In addition to these, the generals in the ancient city are also worth a visit.
