Be aware that the Shenzhen-only 5 day visa you can buy at the border is only available to passport holders of some countries. For example, French passport holders are not eligible. American passport holders became eligible only last month (Jan 2014) but for an extortionate RMB 900(ish). Eligibility changes all the time, literally week to week.
