Time Out says
If you’re looking for a little peace and quiet among the hustle and bustle of Sea World (see below), the nearby creative culture park is where you need to go. Nanhai E-Cool was originally an old factory, later transformed into a centre for creative enterprises. The outer walls of this green oasis are covered with plants and within you’ll find speciality boutiques and cafés. Laid-back and free of crowds, this is the perfect place to relax in Shenzhen without having to venture too far out.
