Shenzhen Meridian View Center, the Window of Shenzhen
Meridian View Center, the window of Shenzhen, is located on the 69th floor of the Diwang Mansion (Shun Hing Square). With a height of about 384 meters (1,260 feet), this building is the highest one in Shenzhen and can be divided into three parts: the Office Area, the Shopping Area and the Business Apartments.
Meridian View Center comprises 15 entertainment areas. Standing on the top of the Diwang Mansion, tourists can have a bird’s eye view of Shenzhen and Hong Kong through the telescopes. Cars and people on the streets in Shenzhen flow like a stream. Shenzhen River looks like a green ribbon connecting Shenzhen with Hong Kong. The appealing panoramic cityscape of Hong Kong can be seen clearly from the top of the building.
Meridian View Center displays the development of Hong Kong and Shenzhen. A long picture scroll shows how Shenzhen developed from a small fishing village to an international metropolis with the support of China’s policies of reform and opening. With the application of stereo hi-fis, some historic documentaries are shown there. Scenes are presented to the tourists vividly, such as the Cession of Hong Kong to Britain, the Return of Hong Kong, the Establishment of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Take-Off of Hong Kong’s Economy. Lifelike waxworks of Deng Xiaoping and Margaret Thatcher are also displayed there. Deng (1904-1997) was one of the greatest leaders of PRC and the designer of China’s socialism reform and modernization. Mrs. Thatcher (born in 1925), the ‘Iron Lady’, was the first female Prime Minister of Britain. Those two great leaders are having a friendly conversation with a big picture of Tian’anmen Square and Central Hong Kong Island serving as the background.
