    We came to Hailing Island for an inexpensive and fun getaway. We ate a lot of seafood after arranging some inexpensive housing for our stay, and then enjoyed a walk by the water.

    Situated on Hailing Island's Ten Miles Silver Beach, the Museum is home to a fascinating "archeological" dig of an ancient Chinese vessel that sunk off the coast upon return from traveling the Maritime Silk Road. They actually dug up the vessel from the sea floor, mud and all, and then transported it into this seaside museum where it continues to undergo excavation. The museum, as this review title suggests, is also an opportunity to present a government propaganda-approved assessment of China's benevolent contributions to its maritime neighbors.

    Nice beach for enjoyable walks. It is off-season, so that water is on the chilly side. We walked in a few times, and in one place walked out about 30 metres. Water is clean, but November-chilly.

    We were taken here by our hosts at night and enjoyed the fountain light and music show as well a pleasant stroll through the park. Many locals were out and about, including many street dancers and musicians.

    Nice, long, clean beach. We went for enjoyable strolls by the water. It is a great place for families with young children.

    The wearther in April turned out to be warmer than we thought -- the endless beach, silk-like water and tranquility made our brief visit perfect and memorable. Choice of hotel is limited but we chose to stay at the home rental at one of the largest property development there (Precious Coast). The room is perfect and the price is a great bargain. More importantly, the harmony of the tidal waves made our stay truly unforgettable. We will definitely return again in the summer.

    A great place to experience fish catching. There are manned fishing boats for rent at RMB 300-400 per hour (high season price). The boat can sit about 20 people. Not only was it a fun boat ride around the pier, it also was a great fish catching experience for kids. The catch could range from crabs, shrimps, shells and fish.

    Other than boat ride, there is a very nice trek up a small hill at Mawei Island, where you can get beautiful glimpses of the sea.

    There are also floating restaurants at the pier serving catch of the day to complement your trip!

    Not really big, a bit expensive, but still good for shopping, see the movie or just for walk. Many young people like to have a walk in here. In Yangjiang, it still a good mall for spend times

    I asked a local expat if there was an "old temple" in Yangjiang that I could photograph and this place was the only choice. It took us a while to find it, but when we finally got there it was in a great location near the river. The temple isn't large, but it has some interesting buildings. One of the trees was decorated with thousands of prayer ribbons. It's one of the more photographic cultural sites to visit in Yangjiang. Once you've see Duck Lake Park and the beach this is a nice break.

    Went there today to find the museum closed indefinetly. There is no warning on Chinese websites and the local buses are still advertising the museum but everything was firmly shut. Workers on site say it is closed for refurbishment. They appeared to be just going through the motions. Judging by the amount of debris and mess surrounding the building nobody cares sbout it any more and it is unlikely to reopen any time soon. The museum of the Maritime Silk Road next door has also closed, apparently
    upermanently. Without its star attractions the town has gone down hill and is now frankly a dump.

    I have just returned from Zhapo Tourist Area. I was there with my family: wife and two children. We stayed two nights in Yangjiang Sunrise Hotel (I already wrote this hotel review). Our purpose of visiting Zhapo was to enjoy the sea and the beach. How naive we were! The beach is nice and big, but... Along the beach just couple of meters from the sea there is a safety rope to prevent people from even to touch the sea. And there are dozens of life guards watching that nobody cross the line. We were puzzled, where people can swim? Then we saw that the beach is divided by fence on two halfs. And all people in swimsuites go to another half. We followed. Another surprise - entrance is not free, 40 RNB per person. We wanted to swim, we paid the money and entered in. Inside was a small aquapark. As we wanted to swim in the open sea, we passed by pools. One more surprise - even sea front is one kilometer long, people can go to the sea only in two designated areas, each is one hundred meters long and 20 meters wide! And thousands of people!!! Only bodies, no water. Between those two areas was same nice beach, but it was not allowed to go deeper than 30 cm! If somebody tried to go deeper, immediately life guards start whistling and waving red flags. It was funny to see people who rented rubber boats near the entrance to aquapark - unable to find free space in designated areas they walked here and there along the sea drugging the boats. Periodically some chinese people start argueing with life guards, preventing them to sit in the sea and children shoot them with water guns. But, in general, looked like chinese people see nothing strange in such situation. We were very frustrated - spent time and money to come to this beach and been unable to enter the sea. That day we did not swim. And another - if somebody want to eat, he has to leave aqua park and, then, to buy a new ticket. All my family was very sad, we had to stay one more day in Zhapo, but what we will do? Fortunately, just ten minutes drive from Dajiao Bay there is Silver Beach - very-very long, 10km, undeveloped sandy beach. And no life guards, almost no people - for several hundred meters to each side nobody. We found one roomy cave with sandy floor near the entrance of small river to the sea and hide there from the sun, sometimes going to swim. Nice and clean place. Many different crabs ran all around. This place I can reccommend if you look for sun and beach. But chinese start to develop this area and, maybe in 2-3 years this beach will be a big copy of Dajiao Bay :(((

    Dajiao Bay is a very bad place for sea lovers, if not Silver Beach our weekend would be fully destroyed.
