Urban cycling is well and alive too, though the infrastructure isn’t quite the same as Copenhagen, bike-sharing services such as Gobee.bike make bike renting as easy as downloading ...

A city of twelve million and counting is hardly a place to get away from it all. Indeed Shenzhen might be the buzzword for high-rise or high-tech but outbound activities, now that’s a different story. Or is it?
