An economic powerhouse on the Pearl River Delta.
Holding a strategic position over the Pearl River Delta, Dongguan borders Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Huizhou. Taken together, this region is known as the Pearl River Delta Mega City – an economic powerhouse. This is one of China’s most important manufacturing bases, with business travellers arriving via Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport throughout the year. The Opium Wars were fought here in the 19th century, and the Opium War Museum offers an in-depth look at these conflicts and the effect they had on the region. Humen Bridge and Keyuan Garden are other local highlights.
