It was a very pleasant surprise to spend the day away from the busy downtown zhuhai. A fishermen's village that still keeps some of the peace and pace of the past. Some temples are being nicely kept along with some traditional houses some repaired other in ruins. On waterfront the sea water is not very clear due to the sediments... More

Spent a couple days here over Dragon Boat Festival for some R&R. It is the perfect place to unwind. There are several beaches, but they were filthy. So much litter and who knows what else. But I love to listen to the waves crashing and people watch. The village is quaint and clean. The main road has many places to... More

There is a fantastic bridge to drive across, it was built at a time when it was expected to be part of the Hong Kong - China bridge. But it was rerouted and so becoming a white elephant. I have driven several times to this island. Except for seafood joint, I don't think there is much here for sightseeing.

Nice place, where you can rent a bike and enjoying a nice ride into the Mangrove. Good choice for make a break of the noizy and growing Zhuhai. You can find some nice restaurant near the sea, with reasonable price and very good food.

Nice location, apart from the International school is a good palce for hiking or biking. No traffic and some nice sight of the ocean and part of Guangdong cost. Is located east of Zhuhai at around 30 KM from the center. There is a bike path from the center of Zhuhai to reach the island.

Very cute island, nice for walking or biking. There are several small seafood restaurants with amazing food to find and fisher villages. Back to the roots architecture - interesting experience in the fast growing surrounding of Zhuhai, Macao and Hong kong

Qi’Ao Island, Zhuhai China Some bloggers have painted a positive view of this small island others are somewhat critical. What becomes clear is that foreign visitors and naturalists like it and domestic tourists looking for the hustle and bustle of modern cities do not. The island sits quietly on the North West edge of the new city of Zhuhai. It... More

This island is a very long way from downtown Zhuhai and you cannot get back by bus (85) after 8pm! It is the setting for the bridge to nowhere. The original bridge link to Shenzhen and Hong Kong was planned to go from here but never completed.
