Posted by Gora on 2005-04-13
SHENZHEN-LOWU ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT -- Shenzhen is a new growing city in China bordering Hongkong. Business and economy is booming in this city.
Tourist,visitors who travel to this part of city needs to be very careful specially if they want to spend their night life here in different bars, pubs, discos, clubs in LuoHu area close to Shenzhen Railway station.
Lot of cheating practices are reported where police, mafia, and bar owners are involved in the business- where all sort of illegal activities are happening. Clients are cheated with money, they are robbed, women are treated with no respect due to hands in glove league with police.
Basically I would say they are all illegal joints indulged in organized prostitution, drug peddling, and other crimes,robbery and misbehaving with customers. Staff has little regards for customers.
Don't get fooled by glamour and beautiful hostessess standing as statues to welcome you, but they are trained to robb you.
Even when you report for poor service,ill treatment, overcharging by their staff & security --no body really cares, rather they will threaten you by police who operate parallelly in their business.
Foreigners must strictly avoid such joints. Ladies are most unsafe in these joints too and utmost care needs to be taken to avoid such places.Your wallet is no safe too, you will be overcharged for everything. Never ever pay by credit card (soft target for frauds) and passports needs to be kept safe.
Be careful of such clubs, bars located in luoHu district, no matter even they are housed in five star hotels. to name few in this area FACE CLUB , CLASS CLUB ETC.
Always opt for good places in adjoining city Hongkong or places away from Luo-Hu if you really want to have good time.
