The New Silicon Valley: In case you didn’t know, Shenzhen stopped being a grotty town across the border long ago. The southern Chinese city — dubbed the “Silicon Valley of Hardware” — is home to luxury hotels aplenty, including the Hard Rock Hotel, which opened in September 2017. Those familiar with the brand will know that the hotel is all about music, and here you’ll be able to order a guitar and vinyl sets straight to your room — plus admire some 160 pieces of rock star memorabilia on display. Elsewhere, you can dig into burgers and smoked ribs at the Hard Rock Cafe, grab a drink at the GMT+8 bar or lounge around the rooftop pool. Looking for the ultimate staycation experience? Book into a Rock Royalty Studio Suite, or the Rock Star Suite — the VIP room fit for rock royalty.
Where? 9 Mission Hills Road, Shenzhen, China, +86 755 3395 2888.
