Shenzhen- Dangerous but Interesting ?

Hi guyz,planning to go Shenzhen while in Hk.
1)l plan to visit Lo Wu Shopping Complex,SZ Book Complex,Tong Men shopping district,Hua Qiang
North Road shopping district.l wander if there're within walking distance from the customs or must l take the Tourist Bus?
2)l've read horror stories of scams,
rip-off,pickpocketing in SZ.How true are these tales?What advice
would u recommend?
3)l understand l can pay in HK dollars in SZ but do they accept
HK money on the public buses,small eatries,street vendors?Otherwise,where is thebest and safest place to
change Hk money to RMB?
Cheers!

Shopping isn't that great in Shenzen unless your into China fashion labels, they also have the typical western designers as SZ is a place where a lot of foriegn investors travel to for business. The highlight of SZ is the great foot massages for $ 3 US and head shampoo massages for $4 US. I have had foot massages before and US Spas and paid $65 and up and they weren't half as good as the ones I've had in China for far less. You can also get manicures and pedicures for $4 US.

VCDs in SZ and hong kong sell for $2 DVDs sell for $5. Hope this helps. Do yourself a favor and get a foot massage.
