Da Peng Walled City, Shenzhen [1394- ]

Date Place completed: 
1394-01-01

Hi there,

I have been there back in the 1980's, before the Nuke Farm in Daya Bay was commissioned.  The tour back then included going to the boundary of Daya Bay to take a look at the Nuke Site from afar.

Don't know how was the area developed now but based on Google Earth with photos a few years old, it appeared the walled city is in good condition.

Best Regards,

T
