Zhuhai

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Sanxiang Quanlin Tourist Resort and Chung Shan Hot Spring Golf Club. When in Zhuhai, make a side trip to see Sun Yat Sen's Residence Memorial Museum in Zhongshan, approximately Zhongshan away. Spend the 19th (Fri) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Zhuhai Lovers' Road, admire the landmark architecture of Meixi Memorial Arch, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Fisher Girl.
