Introducing Zhūhǎi

Like Shēnzhèn to the northeast, Zhūhǎi is a Special Economic Zone (SEZ). But ‘Pearl Sea’ has never reached the level of success – or excess – of its well-heeled step-sister across the Pearl River estuary. So much the better for residents and travellers, for this city just over the border from Macau is one of the cleanest and greenest metropolises in China. It is also an important university centre.

Zhūhǎi is so close to Macau that a visit can be arranged as a day trip; alternatively, you can use Zhūhǎi as an entry or exit point for the rest of China. Visas (MOP$100) valid for thirty days are available at the border (7.30am-midnight).
