Shenzhen city montage.png

Shenzhen ([ʂə́n.ʈʂə̂n] (About this sound listen)) is a major city in Guangdong Province, China, which forms part of the Pearl River Delta megalopolis north of Hong Kong. It holds sub-provincial administrative status, with powers slightly less than a province.

Shenzhen, which roughly follows the administrative boundaries of Bao'an County, was made a city in 1979, and was named after the former county town, whose train station was the last stop on the Chinese section of the Kowloon–Canton Railway. In 1980 Shenzhen was designated China's first Special Economic Zone. Shenzhen's registered population in 2017 is estimated to be at 12,905,000. However, officials estimate that the population of Shenzhen is about 20 million due to the large unregistered floating migrant population living in the city. Shenzhen was one of the fastest-growing cities in the world in the 1990s and the 2000s.
