Shenzhen Civic Center is the heart of Shenzhen in Futian district. The city hall is the most remarkable building in this area with a roof in the shape of a bird. Next to it (on the east side) you will find the beautiful Shenzhen Library and Shenzhen Concert hall. You can enter the Shenzhen Library every day (except Monday) for free and relax and read some books or magazines. Highly recommended for some rainy days!
If you want to buy some books, just cross the square to the biggest and newest bookstore of Shenzhen. Inside several restaurants, a small bookstore specialized in English books and the big bookstore with quite a good selection of English Computer Science books.
To the north of the bookstore you will see a park with on top of a hill a statue of Deng Xiaopeng. From the top of the hill you can take a beautiful photo of Citizen’s Center.
Although the buildings are beautiful during daytime, it’s also worth walking around this area shortly in the evening to marvel at the architecture.
At night, people can enjoy different music and paint playing at Shenzhen Bookstore Square.
