Where is the best place to live in Shenzhen?

Dear All,

as you can see in my profile I start my new job in Shenzhen on the 1th of June. Next week on moday I will arrive in Shenzhen for business reasons for 10 days. During that time I wanted to check some apartments. Who can tell me some good places in Shenzhen where I can check for the apartment? my office is in Luohu. Adress:
Pengnian Plaza No.2008 Jiabin Road
It is no problem for me if the apartment is around 10-15Km away from my office.
Thanks for your help in advance!

Hi Mirko,

Best of luck on your new job in Shenzhen. Shenzhen is beautiful. You will love it.

I lived in Shenzhen with my husband nearly for a year. We lived in Nanshan District which is preferably nice and clam area. My best friend and her husband lived around Luo hu area so I can tell you about the two.

If you are a type of person who like to work somewhere and do all the cool stuff you want to do in life (job, shopping, partying, hanging out) and want to come home and be peaceful from all the scene you have been doing the whole day and evening or late night ...then nanshan is the best place for you. I absolutly suggest nanshan because it has many beautiful high rise apartments few with the sea and hongkong view it is absolutly gorgeous. You can find little shopping centers and restaurants around your apartment and to go out to places like shekou and futain is easy because you will find cabs as soon as you stepped out.

The downside of nanshan for you is it will be like a 25-30 minutes cab drive. It is ok if you use a cab for weekly or occasional times otherwise the cost 12.50rmb plus the meter will be a lot in time. There is also a sub way from futain area. You take a cab from nanshan to futain for 12.50 rmb and then the subway which I don't remember the cost but very very cheap but it took me more than 45 hours to be at the luo hu commercial center one day so that was my one time experience.

If you are a type of person who like to walk to your work, walk to the store or the mall or to the nearest bars and night clubs, looking for an apartment in luo hu will be a really good idea. Why I can't stand living in luo hu and do all my things around there with the high traffic of people and cars bothers me to think of having a calmer space to stay in doors you know.

Hope this helps. Oh as Bill said above, you should check out the apartment listings on ....

Hi Mirko, I have been living here for about 9 1/2 months and like the two others that posted, I think you will have many choices for places to live. Just depends on your preference. It should be no problem finding a place in Luohu district. I live in Futian district - next to Luohu and I think with global economic crisis you should have many choices. I have worked in Nanshan district which I think is the prettiest from what I have seen in my time here. But Nanshan is not near Luohu. It all depends. Once you get here you will get a better feel for the place. Any questions please feel free to ask. I have friends here, so if I don't know I can ask. Hope this helps. Cheers, Bill P.S. Check for apartment listings or you can go through an agent but they normally charge equal to your first month's rent to find a place - but they know the city...

You have lots of choice in that area near Pengnian Plaza. I think you can find many apartments costs RMB3K-- 4K for two rooms with decoration available.
