What people are saying:

This was just remarkable! We wondered around the ancient city, enjoying the temples and throwing our coins in the wishing wells. We said our prayers and enjoyed some of the most amazing foods we’ve had to date in China! we even went back for more two days later! There are plenty of food, clothing, accessory and drink stores, so you can enjoy exploring all of the little ally ways in complete comfort and relaxation. We even stumbled across the most amazing Boston style coffee shop! I highly recommend this attraction!

Additional Information


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.
