A booming industrial and financial city in southern China, close to Guangzhou and Hong Kong. Was a sleepy fishing village at the turn of last century, and is now home to around 4,000,000 people. Known for its tremendous growth as a Special Economic Zone and for skyscrapers that are even gaudier than Hong Kong's.
