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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Macau (Coloane, Taipa Village Macau, &more) and Zhongshan (Sanxiang Quanlin Tourist Resort, Jinzhong Reservoir, &more). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Ruins of St. Paul's, don't miss a visit to Largo do Senado (Senado Square), step off the mainland to explore Ye Li Dao, and look for gifts at Pastelaria Koi Kei.

Plan my trip to Zhuhai with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Kansas City, USA to Zhuhai is an approximately 30-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 14 hours traveling from Kansas City to Zhuhai. Traveling from Kansas City in July, Zhuhai is a bit warmer at night with lows of 79°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) so you can go by car to Jiangmen.
