One of the most popular and enjoyable daytrips from Shenzhen, this village is almost entirely dedicated to painting. Get a self-portrait done or request a freshly-painted Van Gogh or Rembrandt.
Getting there (location): Take the metro Line No.3 to Dafen. Dafen metro station is about 15 minutes from Laojie metro station. Then exit A and walk past the Walmart on your left. It will be a left turn into a street with a signpost saying Oil Painting Street. The walk to the village from Dafen metro is probably 5 minutes.
Don't go too early. Most of the shops open at around 2 pm.
