2. Nanling village 南岭村

Nanling is known as the "First Village of China."

The village's best-known tourist attraction is Qiushuishan Park, a nice escape from downtown Shenzhen. The 53-hectare park is surrounded by an 800-meter long mini Great Wall. Inside is a Hakka folk culture museum and a badge museum with more than 10,000 badges with the image of Chairman Mao Zedong.

The peak of the 253-meter hill can be reached by cable car for a bird's-eye view of Hong Kong and Buji Subdistrict, where Nanling is located. The park includes a golf training course and a roller coaster.

The 4.12-square-kilometer village of 800 descendants from the original settlers and 35,000 migrants has the distinction of having paid 181 million yuan in taxes last year, creating an additional attraction for visitors.
