Shekou Daily's Mission is to help English-speakers live happy, healthy and prosperous lives in Shenzhen. We do this by working closely with local businesses and partners to bring great events to the community, by providing a free community directory and newsletter, and by sharing English-Language news and resources. We focus on Shekou because the majority of expats live in this area and we believe that in order to live a happy, healthy and prosperous life in Shenzhen one must at least live, work or play in Shekou.
ShekouDaily.com was launched in January 2014 as a resource where expats could find information to help them have more fun with friends and family. In just over a year, ShekouDaily had become the most well-known local web site gaining over 1,500 followers in Shekou. We have since expanded to include a daily newsletter of all events taking place each day, a WeChat subscription account to receive notifications via messages to mobile phones, and launched our Facebook page. We experimented with various services and channels to see what works best. Some things worked, some didn't, but we continue to try new things to find the best way to help the people of Shekou live happier lives here. In May of 2016 we launched a new and improved Community Directory hosted inside of China for easier access at ShekouDaily.cn. We have since grown to share information to between 10,000-15,000 readers each month.
What we do
ShekouDaily is a free service. No registration is required. Shekou organizations and individuals alike can now list their businesses and offerings for free. ShekouDaily originally started promoting just food & drink specials; however, we have opened up the directory to include anything people may need to live well in Shenzhen. We've added information about local schools, charity events, sports event, hospitals, clinics and more.
