Thanksgiving, primarily celebrated in the United States and Canada, is traditionally a time for reuniting with friends and family and giving thanks for what we have. Here in Shenzhen, you don't have to be North American to use this day as an opportunity to bring your loved ones close and express your love and gratitude. Life and love are fleeting and Thanksgiving is just the time to enjoy it while we can.
We hope our 2017 Ultimate Guide to Thanksgiving will help enjoy this holiday to its fullest; whether you're alone, going out the friends and family, or preparing your feast at home.

Relaxation of China's family planning policy was expected to provide a partial solution to the challenges faced by an aging population and become a driving economic force; however, the implementation of the "two-child policy", which took effect on January 1st, 2016, gave rise to many new questions.
To provide enforcement guidelines for dealing with these questions, Shenzhen lawmakers passed a significant provision on October 12th entitled "PROVISION OF SHENZHEN GOVERNMENT ON FAMILY PLANNING"; which will take effect today, November 12th, 2017.
One notable mention in this provision is that women can now enjoy at least 178 days for maternity leave! This, up from ...
Shenzhen has a brand new park and it's a beauty! This one, the Shenzhen Talent Park, covers 770,000 square meters, including a 300,000-square-meter lake, a running track, self-service showers, free Wi-Fi and more.

Friday night I was on a mission: Sample as many works of art as possible, in less than five hours. With over 70 beers to choose from at the 3rd Annual Craft Beer Fest here in Shenzhen, this was going to be a challenge. There definitely wasn't enough time to properly try them all so I focused on beer that I wouldn't normally be able to drink on a regular night out in Shenzhen. I consulted with experts along the way to help tap some of the hidden gems of the fest.
Those of you going to the festival today are in luck. Doors open at noon so you'll have eleven hours to try plenty more beers than I could. After trying just under 20% of the beers, I decided to sit down to make my list. It was go ...
