Zhuhai

Despite being one of the first Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in China, the port city of Zhuhai has more of a reputation for being rich with gardens.
Get some historical perspective at Cha'an Temple and Sun Yat Sen's Residence Memorial Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Baishuidai Park and Chung Shan Hot Spring Golf Club. Spend the 29th (Sun) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. There's more to do: take a stroll around Jiuzhou City and make a trip to Zhuhai Lovers' Road.

To see photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Zhuhai tour planner.

Hobart, Australia to Zhuhai is an approximately 17-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) to China Standard Time (CST) is minus 2 hours. Traveling from Hobart in December, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Zhuhai, with lows of 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Meizhou.

A massive metropolis and critical international trading hub, Guangzhou sprawls along the Pearl River, distinctly vibrant and cosmopolitan.
Shamian Island and Temple of the Six Banyan Trees & Flower Pagoda (Liurong Temple) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Baiyun Mountain and Yuexiu Mountain. There's still lots to do: stop by Beijing Road Raw Material For Medicine Shopping Mall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sacred Heart Cathedral, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Chimelong Safari Park, and make a trip to Canton Tower.

A fairly humble collection of farming and fishing villages and towns until 1979, you wouldn't guess as much when taking a tour of Shenzhen.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Baoneng All City Shopping Mall and Luohu Commerical City (Lo Wu Shopping Plaza). Get some cultural insight at St.Anthony's Catholic Church of Shenzhen and Shenzhen Mosque. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Futian Nature Reserve, look for gifts at Dong Men Pedestrian Street, view the masterpieces at Design Society, and stroll around Shenzhen Lianhuashan Park.
