Zhuhai Travel Guide: 121 reviews and 286 photos

Zhuhai is the name of a city, and Special Economic Zone (SEZ), in Guangdong Province, China.
Zhuhai is known for its beautiful long coastline, waving palm trees, open spaces, low population density, and its many islands.

Located in the Pearl River Delta, Zhuhai borders Jiangmen to the northwest, Zhongshan to the north, and former Portuguese colony Macau to the south. By sea, former British colony Hong Kong and Shenzhen are just across the bay to the east. The provincial capital Guangzhou is about 150 km to the north.

Zhuhai is one of China's cleanest and prettiest cities, and received numerous accolades for its excellent ecological development efforts. It is also commonly agreed to be one of the best cities in China to retire in. With a low population density compared to other larger cities in China, Zhuhai is unsurprisingly greener. Parks and open spaces dot the cityscape, and waving palm trees line the extensive coastline and many of the major streets.

The moderate climate of Zhuhai makes it an ideal tourist destination all year round. It has many attractions worthy of visiting, including the Zhuhai Fisher Girl Statue, New Yuanmingyuan Garden, Pearl Land Amusement Park, Jiuzhou City, Meixi Royal Stone Archways, Huangyang Mountain and Baiteng Lake. Additionally, various appealing islands are recommended such as Dong'ao Island, Gaolan Island, Qi'ao Island and Hebao Island and so on.

Zhuhai is also famous for its hot springs and golf clubs where you can take a break from sightseeing. The consummate tourist reception and service system offers many choices of entertainment as well. Dining and shopping are also pleasant. Western and oriental cultures collide and combine here: an open, colorful, and romantic Zhuhai awaits you.

    Zhuhai looks like a nice place. I would consider going there just for the mango puffs. They look delicious!
