Guide to Swimming Pools in Shekou, Shenzhen

on 05/27/2017 - 04:10 pm

Hanging out in Shekou often feels like being on vacation. Shekou, like many tropical holiday destinations, has great weather, beautiful blue skies (most of the time), palm trees and plenty of places to relax with great food and drinks. Unfortunately, the un-swimmable water of Shenzhen Bay makes beach life here an impossibility... at least for now. That doesn't mean though that we need to go without swimming. There are plenty of great places in Shekou to get wet, enjoy a few laps, or just sit by the water while soaking in the rays.
Here's a list of some of Shekou's greatest swimming pools that are open to the public. We'll continue to update this list with more info so be sure to che ...

Tips from Swedish Coach of Shenzhen Football Club Sven-Göran Eriksson

on 04/27/2017 - 05:52 pm

While attending an event last Wednesday at The Terrace in Sea World I had the pleasure of bumping into Sven-Göran Eriksson, a Swedish football manager and former player, who is currently the manager of China League One side Shenzhen Football Club (FC).
According to the BBC, "Eriksson has won eighteen trophies with a variety of league clubs in Sweden, Portugal and Italy, between 1979 and 2000, and became the first manager to win league-and-cup doubles in three countries. He later managed the national teams of England, Mexico and the Ivory Coast, as well as three clubs in England."
