Shenzhen's metro Updates
Shenzhen gets better and better every day. Exciting update: There are now TWO new metro lines (line 7 and line 9) right next to my apartment in Xili. Even more, one of the metro lines goes DIRECTLY to the Hong Kong border. Now, how cool is that?! I can now commute to the Hong Kong border crossing in one straight shot from my doorstep. Life is good.
In case you weren’t aware, Shenzhen is developing like crazy. The Shenzhen metro is no exception. Take a look at the two maps of the Shenzhen metro below. The first map shows Shenzhen’s metro when I first arrived 2.5 years ago. The second map shows what Shenzhen’s metro will look like in the next few years. The progress is already pretty unreal. This city is transforming before my eyes!

If only NYC subways were kept this squeaky clean, huh? Sometimes I think the floor of the Shenzhen metro might be more sanitary than half the restaurant tables I eat off of in China. Not kidding.
