Name

As one of the older parts of Shenzhen, the Dongmen area was established about 300 years ago as the centre of Shum Chun Hui, a town that would later develop into the city. This leads it to be alternatively known as "Laojie" (lit. "Old Street").

Location

Lying just north of Shennan East Road, Dongmen is accessible from Exit A of Laojie Station, Shenzhen Metro. "Dongmen" usually refers to more than just "Dongmen Road", encompassing the entire series of connecting commercial streets. These streets were closed off to automobile traffic and turned pedestrian in 1999.

History

The first McDonald's in Mainland China opened in Dongmen in October 1990.
