The City of
a Hundred Islands
The name Zhuhai means Pearl Sea, and the modern city of Zhuhai sits at the mouth of the famous Pearl River Delta, where river and ocean meet. Zhuhai boasts 146 islands, many with their own secluded beaches and unspoiled scenery. These islands, like clusters of pearls, stretch out across the Delta towards its neighboring cities of Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macao.
Zhuhai's interesting past adds greatly to its atmosphere and appeal to visitors. Inscriptions show that people were living in the area more than 5,000 years ago. In the west of Zhuhai, near Yamen River, there are ancient ruins from the Southern Song Dynasty.
