A great way to pass a few hours away from the noise traffic and plastic nick nicks of the local area. Not awesome exhibits but a good insight into the Hakka culture and history. Most of them well translated to English.

Take the Shenzhen subway Line 3 to Nanlian Station. Walk in the direction of the train. Just meters ahead, is a traffic junction and you continue walking, till you see an entry to a carpark and a prominent archway with street vendors in the middle. Walk through it and at the end, you will see the place. Very historical in... More

I went there to see if it would be a good place to take my mom when she comes to visit me in a few months, and I was very pleased. Walls some areas are still under construction, and others may not have English translation, most of the museum is friendly to English speakers. It's very large and easy to... More

This place is also known as the Shenzhen Longgang Hakka Folk Custom Museum or The Longgang Museum of Hakka Culture (as it says in the Metro exit.

This place is a clean and quiet too. The museum is very informative about the Hakka clan . The entrance fee is rmb 10 only. The museum is big and you can stay there for 3 to 4 hrs . Unfortunately there do not have any souvenirs to be purchase .

My wife has Hakka heritage and though the region is dotted with Hakka communities and villages, this is the easiest to get to by public transport. We spent about 2.5 hours here checking out the museum artifacts etc. Unfortunately not everything was translated into English (we can't read Chinese) and a couple of sections were closed that day. But otherwise... More

We took the underground from Shekou and it took almost 2 hours to get there, but it was worth the journey to see this walled town. It is extensive and amazingly intact, every room and alcove has something on display. Entry was just 10RMB (Feb 2016). The audio guide is available in Chinese and English and is free but you...
