Hello everyone!

I am visiting Shenzhen for work purpose and will be here in the Luohu district until Wednesday or Thursday (i.e. 06/13/2012 or 06/14/2012) of this week!!

I have heard the nightlife in Shenzhen is pretty cool and would love to experience it myself. Especially being a nightlife lover back in California, US! :)

If there are any locals that is willing to host me any of the nights i.e. Monday to Thursday nights to the clubs here (i don't speak chinese :P ), then I would love to hear back from you!

My skype id is "nidhish.nair" & msn email account is "nair_nidhish@hotmail.com".

I work daytime and only return to my hotel around 8pm, so I am pretty much available anytime after and can hang out until the wee hours!

Hope to hear from you folks! :)

Hey Arvind,

Thanks for the reply!! :)

I tried looking you up on Skype but the profile said Chandigarh, so was not sure if it was you :P

But anywho, CoCo park does sound like a good place to spend my time at and is only like 20 mins by Subway from my hotel!!

Question for ya - Any pointers/notes to keep in mind when travelling via Metro? i.e. cash only? ticket agents get non-chinese station names? all trains stop at all stations? etc etc?? Just ANYTHING you can think of a total strangers/non-chinese-speaker's perspective would be GREAT! :)

Thanks again for your help, will keep your number handy haha

haha good advice about the bus/trains :)

Yep yep, i posted on 2 - here and the main Shenzhen and have been getting positive responses from both end, which is pretty useful!

Actually might be meeting a fellow CSer again in Coco park tonight - not confirmed yet though. Oh I went to the sea world area on Sunday - took a cab then though with a local engineer who was kind enough to take me around for half a day!

Defnitely won't get there by 8 since i usually only get to my hotel around 8.30, so might have to see how the time permits tonight! :) Thanks for the reply btw!!
