Thanksgiving, primarily celebrated in the United States and Canada, is traditionally a time for reuniting with friends and family and giving thanks for what we have. Here in Shenzhen, you don't have to be North American to use this day as an opportunity to bring your loved ones close and express your love and gratitude. Life and love are fleeting and Thanksgiving is just the time to enjoy it while we can. 

We hope our 2017 Ultimate Guide to Thanksgiving will help enjoy this holiday to its fullest; whether you're alone, going out the friends and family, or preparing your feast at home.

We'll continue to add more Thanksgiving offers, events and activities here as we receive them so check back often.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, Gobble.
