The city of Shenzhen in Guangdong province is aiming to unlock the potential of its industrial tourism by introducing new tourist routes that enable visitors to explore the city's industrial history and advancements. These tourist routes encompass tech companies such as Dji, BYD, Tencent and Huawei, as well as cultural zones that were once industrial sites. Shenzhen contributes to 12.5 percent of the world's new energy vehicles, 40 percent of boarding bridges and 70 percent of civilian drones.

Shenzhen has not only nurtured numerous tech companies but also boasts a plethora of innovative enterprises that have excelled in fields such as eyewear and apparel production.

During a ceremony held on Monday, Song Qiang, executive vice-president of the Shenzhen Tourism Association, unveiled a brand-new industrial tourism destinations and resources handbook. These destinations are scattered across all eight districts of Shenzhen, namely, Futian, Luohu, Yantian, Nanshan, Baoan, Longgang, Longhua, and Guangming.

Gong Xiaofeng, director of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area emerging industry development research institute at Shenzhen University, highlighted that Shenzhen has cultivated a multitude of specialized and innovative small and medium-sized enterprises, which will serve as attractions for industrial tourism. Additionally, the city is home to the headquarters of many companies, making it an ideal base for industrial tourism.
