Zhuhai, located on the coast of the South China Sea, faces Hong Kong in the east across the sea and adjoins Macau in the south. It is a beautiful garden-like coastal city.
Zhuhai is one of the birthplaces of China’s marine culture. Zhuhai is not only an important sea route of China's ancient Silk Road, but also a bridge for China to connect to the world. Zhuhai has been home to a number of famous people such as Yung Wing who is considered the father of overseas Chinese students; and Chen Fang who was the first Chinese consul in Hawaii.
The intermingling of marine culture and the local Lingnan culture has given Zhuhai a special charm and unique identity.

These are the spots that will help domestic and overseas tourists to get a glimpse of the uniqueness of Zhuhai.
