Dapeng: Old Town

Dapeng is a well-preserved town located at the east of Longgang District in Shenzhen (China). Through its narrow streets can get to the Fortress and at 5-10 minutes driving distance can get easily to Dongshan temple. By walking distance should be about 30-40 minutes though

Dapeng es un poblado bastante bien conservado situado al Este del distrito de Longgang en Shenzhen (China). A través de sus calles estrechas se puede llegar hasta el Fuerte y a unos 5-10 minutos en coche está situado el Templo Dongshan. Caminando hasta aquí se puede tardar unos 40 minutos desde el pueblo.

HOW TO GET THERE

CAR

This is the way how I got there since is the easiest and recommended way. The journey takes about one hour departing from Louhu/Longgang district. Find a friend with car or rent it totally worth it.

BUS

This is the slowest and the last alternative. Usually takes about 2 hours or more

-From Yinghu Bus Station: Bus E11 to Dapeng -> Bus B756 to Dapeng Suocheng

-From Futian Bus Station: Bus H92 to Dapeng -> Bus B756 to Dapeng Suocheng

-From Longgang: Bus 833 to Dapeng -> Bus B756 to Dapeng Suocheng

-From Longgang Bus Terminal: Bus 818 to Dapeng -> Bus B756 to Dapeng Suocheng

Can find more info here about the transportation

Para llegar allí recomendaría ir en coche de un amigo o alquilar, ya que es un lugar algo remoto.

Otra alternativa es en autobús según indico arriba. En autobús se puede tardar unas 2 horas o más, mientras que en coche en poco más de una hora llegas perfectamente

In the town there are plenty of souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, markets…do not worry too much about food and drinks

Getting away from the town and visit Dongshan temple is a must since this is one of the most beautiful temples ever seen so far.

En Dapeng Town hay bastante tiendas de souvenirs, restaurantes,cafeterías, mercados…

Dejando Dapeng Town atrás, vale la pena ir a ver el templo Dongshan. Su diseño y color es increíble
