agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of the Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), has secured great hotel deals for students and spectators attending the XXVI Summer Universiade in Shenzhen.
From August 12 to 23, Universiade – also known as the World University Games – will take place in the southern Chinese border city of Shenzhen. Students from 45 different countries will compete in sports spanning both traditional Olympiad games and modern events, such as BMX, beach volleyball, and aerobics.
Held every two years, Universiade brings together some of the world's most promising young athletes. Preceded by a torch relay and bookended by action-packed opening and closing ceremonies, the games will take place in some of Shenzhen's newest sports venues.
Twenty-one new stadiums and sports centers were built in preparation for the games, and Universiade attendees will be amongst the first to experience some of them. The biggest new venue is the Shenzhen Bay Sports Center, dubbed the 'Spring Cocoon' for its lattice iron shell and distinct shape. Set to host the opening ceremony and table tennis event, the structure cost US$304M to build, and houses a gymnasium, a stadium, a swimming pool, shops, and a variety of public spaces.
As a tourist destination, Shenzhen has a lot to offer travelers. Located just across the border from Hong Kong, this bustling economic hub is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, and boasts great shopping, beautiful beaches, and temperate weather.
Shenzhen is also home to a great selection of theme parks. For travelers looking for a fun day out, Happy Valley, Window on the World, and China Folk Culture Villages provide plenty of family-friendly entertainment.
To secure a great hotel rate for the Shenzhen Universiade 2011, travelers should book a deal early and take advantage of these special offers from agoda.com.
