Check out these insane pictures WeChat account Shenzhen Dajian Shi posted on Sunday.

Take a gander below at Shenzhen's Window of the World, a notoriously crowded tourist trap even outside the holidays. By 4pm on the second day of the National Week Holiday a reported 30,000 people had entered the park.

In Paris, the glass triangle marks the main entrance to the Louvre museum, in Shenzhen, it marks the entrance to a subway system packed sardine-full with tourists.

On October 2, the official Shenzhen Public Security account released a series of images showing Dameisha beach being hit with crowds similar to those that left hundreds of tons of garbage during holidays in previous years.
