Chung Ying Street, also called Sino-British Street, is a shopping paradise where only the people holding the permission pass issued by the Shenzhen Pubilc Security Bureau can enter. With a boundary tablets set in the center in the year 1898, Chung Ying Street is divided into two parts -- the Chinese and the British. After the return of Hong Kong on July 1, 1997, the street has become a historical phrase and a live relic.
Chung Ying Street has attracted a growing number of tourists by the special history and the huge variety of commodities in the featured stores. Lots of Hong Kong businessmen came here to cash in the market. Today, there are around 50 stores selling gold items, which have fashionable designs and reasonable prices. The duty-free products' affordable prices and refined quality make the street popular among travelers to Shenzhen. Since Shenzhen's rapid economic development, the street has gradually lost its former commercial glory. The government h repositioned it as a site of historical interest, incorporating shopping, sightseeing and entertainment. Its famous past as a shopping paradise will remain in the public memory, but the new Zhongying Street will be modernized and include features such as a tourist beach.
300-year-old well, 100-year-old banyans and the special museum with precious historic relics will be as attractive as the shinning shopping paradise.
